?Chelsea picked up their sixth win in a row in the Premier League to secure their place in the top four heading into the international break, thanks to goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic against Crystal Palace.

Chelsea needed just six second-half minutes to break the deadlock thanks to a stunning pass from Willian which released Abraham inside the penalty area, and the England international made no mistake from close-range to score his tenth goal in the Premier League this season.

The hosts dominated the opening 25 minutes of the match but struggled to create any real chances at goal, although  Vicente Guaita did have to be on his toes to keep out Pulisic's impressive solo effort.

It's been a common thread for Chelsea this season, but Saturday actually saw Frank Lampard name his youngest-ever starting XI in the Premier League so far.

Crystal Palace were spurred on and started to create chances, but they couldn't stop Pulisic putting the icing on the cake for the hosts thanks to a late header with his last touch of the match.

Both sides will get two weeks off while international football takes over, but Frank Lampard will be working hard to prepare his side for their trip to Manchester City when Premier League football returns in two weeks.

A sixth win in a row for Chelsea in the Premier League makes them the most in-form team in Europe's top five leagues heading into the international break - second is Hoffenheim, who are on a five-game winning run domestically.
