Chelsea soon broke the deadlock after the break as Willian flicked a ball through to Abraham in the Palace box for the England worldwide to slot a finish past Guaita.

Chelsea fans have praised defender Reece James after the youngster made a huge impact on his first start for the Blues in the league.

"The most important thing was we got the three points", Abraham told BT Sport.

Reece James is one of the brightest young prospects in Chelsea's squad and his hype is increasing with every minute he is spending on the pitch. The 19-year-old player was also great in attack. "We've put in a lot of good performances, away from home and again today at home". In fact, the Spaniard had started 147 of the Blues' past 148 Premier League games.

"I had some issues with my hip before and now in the game I started to feel it a bit. but hopefully I'm going to get it checked out and it's going to be OK".

Pulisic, who has now scored five goals in Chelsea's last three Premier League games, wrapped up the victory with his 79th-minute strike, heading in after substitute Michy Batshuayi's blocked shot bounced up for the United States global.

Reaching double figures puts him level with Jamie Vardy in the Golden Boot race and he is the first Englishman to reach 10 goals in a league season for Chelsea since Lampard in 2012-13.

Chelsea FC can win six successive Premier League fixtures for the first time since their title-winning season under Antonio Conte back in May 2017. The 21-year-old has been one of Chelsea's best players in recent weeks and he can now boast a fantastic five goals and five assists since joining from Borussia Dortmund.

"Crystal Palace are a good side, they defend well as a team and they frustrated our style of play".

It is unlikely that Chelsea will be able to compete for the title this season but they have progressed quickly under Lampard with their youngest squad in recent memory.

Reece James came on during the second half of the Ajax game and he was easily one of the best players on the pitch for the Blues.
