Sixth straight win Abraham, Pulisic on Chelsea topped 2nd,

Sixth straight win Abraham, Pulisic on Chelsea topped 2nd in Premier League Table.





Frank Lampard's side has recorded a sixth straight Premier League win for the first time since they won the Premier League title in 2016-17 as they moved up to second in the PL table.

After dominating a goalless opening half, Chelsea finally made the breakthrough when Mateo Kovacic and Willian combined to release Abraham - with the forward stroking a right-foot effort into the bottom right corner from 10 yards.

 But Chelsea more than merited their win, with Pulisic wrapping up the points with a close-range header after Michy Batshuayi's deflected shot fell into his path.

Chelsea have won six consecutive Premier League games for the first time since May 2017 under Antonio Conte, in their last title-winning season.

This was Crystal Palace's 100th Premier League London derby (W23 D23 L54), with only Fulham posting a lower points-per-game rate in such games (0.84) than the Eagles (0.92).

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is the seventh English manager to win six consecutive Premier League matches, and the first since Alan Pardew in April 2012 with Newcastle United.

With an average age of 24 years and 88 days, Chelsea named their youngest ever starting XI in the Premier League, and the youngest of any team in the competition this season.

Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson oversaw his 300th Premier League game as manager, becoming the 15th boss to hit that milestone.

C├ęsar Azpilicueta's run of 73 consecutive starts in the Premier League for Chelsea ended, with the Spaniard failing to start for the first time since November 2017 against Swansea.

Crystal Palace failed to attempt a single shot in the first half of a Premier League match for the first time since March 2014 away to Swansea City.

Tammy Abraham is the second youngest player to reach double figures for Premier League goals for Chelsea, after Arjen Robben (21y 342d).

Chelsea's Christian Pulisic is the fourth American to score in three consecutive Premier League games, after Clint Dempsey (three times), Joe-Max Moore and Roy Wegerle.




Upcoming Match Fixtures date for Chelsea & Crystle Palace, Kick-off time.




Chelsea travel to Manchester City in their next Premier League match on Saturday, 23 November (17:30 GMT). Crystal Palace welcome league leaders Liverpool to Selhurst Park for their next Premier League fixture on that day (15:00).
