Chelsea recorded a sixth consecutive Premier League win for the first time since their title-winning season of 2016-17.

The Blues' victory over Crystal Palace means they are now five points behind leaders Liverpool and level on points with second-placed Leicester.

Frank Lampard's side moved above Manchester City, who play leaders Liverpool on Sunday, but sit behind Brendan Rodgers' side on goal difference.



Tammy Abraham's 10th league goal of the season and Christian Pulisic's header ensured the win against a resolute Palace side who barely got out of their own half during the first period.

Crystal Palace welcome league leaders Liverpool to Selhurst Park for their next Premier League fixture on that day (15:00).

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson: "I thought we weathered the early storm well.

Fikayo Tomori, 21, Mason Mount, 20 and Abraham, 22, have all come into the team, while Christian Pulisic, 21, and 19-year-old Reece James, making his first Premier League start, ensured Lampard's starting side was the club's youngest ever in Premier League terms.
