Crystal Palace did not allow him a single sight of goal during the first half but Abraham was nerveless when he finally shook off Gary Cahill and James Tomkins early in the second half.

In a game of defence versus attack, Chelsea needed their striker to rise to the occasion.

Fortunately for Frank Lampard, Abraham has not allowed his head to drop once this season.

They needed ruthlessness in front of goal.

There were brief flickers from Palace, who threatened an equaliser when Tomkins nodded a free-kick wide, but Chelsea clinched the points in the 79th minute.

The outstanding Kovacic darted inside from the left and jabbed a pass to Willian, who carved Palace open with a superb flick to Abraham.

Chelsea deserved their sixth consecutive league win, even though they were confronted by a familiar conundrum during a frustrating opening 45 minutes.
