A section of the Chelsea FC faithful are delighted with the performance of Willian following his sublime assist for the club's opening goal against Crystal Palace.

Christian Pulisic thereafter bagged the club's second on the day and the game ended with Willian enjoying his first-ever win as the Blues captain in the Premier League.

Lampard started with the youngest team any manager has picked in the English top-flight so far this season, and the youngest in Chelsea's Premier League history, against a negative Palace side which prioritised trying to contain their opponents.

"We've had teams come here and be hard to break down, it's a test of not only how you unlock the door, but can you switch on to make sure you don't get hit by the sucker punch?"

A bright start saw the excellent Willian nearly open the scoring with a 20-yard free-kick that went narrowly wide and he went even closer in first-half injury-time with a shot that was deflected wide by former Blues defender Gary Cahill.

According to Fox News , the president told reporters "The witch hunt continues, lot of witch hunt continues". The whistle-blower complaint letter was submitted to Intelligence Inspector General Michael Atkinson.

A Chelsea victory never looked in serious doubt, although James Tomkins headed wide from a set-piece with Palace's only clear opportunity when they briefly threatened after Abraham's strike.

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 result saw the Blues close the gap to Liverpool to five points as they overtook Manchester City, who play Liverpool on Sunday, and Leicester, who take on Arsenal later on Saturday.

"I just felt today was a game that we can get Reece some minutes because he's deserving of them the way he's training and playing and, with Zaha, what better test". It's not a big shock to me. "Things are coming to me easy, but it's not always like that", he said. Thus, soon we can see the Spaniard fading away from the top spot in the pecking order and giving way to James. I want to be out there and continue to help my team.

Pulisic was substituted shortly after scoring and put it down in part to pain in his hip. "And I trust Reece defensively so really, really impressive game from him and he's going to get much better".
