  • PALACE 2 CHELSEA 3

    79' Jorginho is readying himself to come on for his first action since the Premier League's restart…

  • PALACE 2 CHELSEA 3

    78' What an extraordinary record this is!

    What a time for Big Ben to chime again… but it'd be better if he could grab another…

  • PALACE 2 CHELSEA 3

    77' Palace have the wind in their sails now, and are well and truly on top again!

    Chelsea just cannot wrestle control of possession.

  • PALACE 2 CHELSEA 3

    73' Well it wasn't 3-1 for long!

    Lovely intricate play around the penalty area from Palace gets van Aanholt in behind.

    The Dutchman gets his head up and squares for Benteke to tap home a rare goal.

    Game on again!

  • GOAL!!! BENTEKE GETS PALACE STRAIGHT BACK IN IT!!

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 3

    71' Big moment for Chelsea and it's a great moment for Frank Lampard's substitutes!

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek, formerly of this parish, bursts forward in what was becoming trademark fashion prior to his injury.

    He impressively slips Abraham through with a perfect through-ball, and Tammy does the rest, side-footing a perfect finish into the far bottom corner.

  • GOAL!!! TAMMY ABRAHAM MAKES IT 3-1!!!

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    70' We are back underway at Selhurst Park, where Chelsea are really being made to battle…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    68' Second-half drinks break time! Frank Lampard will be a little on edge…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    67' Some decent interplay between Kouyate and Ayew, but the latter's through ball to Benteke is a little over-hit and can't send the Belgian through on goal.

    In the words of Gary Neville, Chelsea are playing a “dangerous game” here…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    65' Palace are well on top here, perhaps this man might make the difference with the right service…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    64' Frank Lampard has finally turned to his bench and it's homegrown talents Tammy Abraham and Ruben Loftus-Cheek replacing Olivier Giroud and Ross Barkley.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    64' Half a chance for Ayew!

    Milivojevic swung in a corner, which was only half cleared by Giroud.

    Ayew got the ball on the swivel, but his shot was charged down and blocked.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    61' Or maybe not, following two minutes of treatment for a head injury he re-enters the action.

    You can't help but feel that these decisions should be taken out of players' and coaches' hands…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    61' Thankfully Milivojevic is up to his knees following lengthy treatment, but there is no way he'll be able to safely continue, surely…

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    59' Referee David Coote stops play with Luka Milivojevic appearing to be nursing a head injury.

    On the way down following an aerial challenge the Serb appeared to suffer an accidental collision with Jordan Ayew's knee… it looks a nasty one.

    Let's hope he's okay.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    56' Palace have started the second half well, and have even had 64 per cent of the ball since half-time!

    Lampard will not be happy with his side's sloppiness at the moment and will surely be plotting changes.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    54' Big chance wasted by Giroud!

    Willian played the ball out to Reece James, and the young full-back dropped the ball right onto the head of Giroud with a perfect cross.

    The Frenchman was wasteful, however, heading the simple chance over the bar.

    Let-off for Palace!

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    53' Can this man mastermind a Palace comeback?

    They're defending resolutely.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    51' Van Aanholt boots a volley straight into Willian's face, and the Brazilian is down.

    Right on the nose!

    Play is stopped by the referee but Willian groggily continues.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    50' Ross Barkley is making his fourth consecutive Premier League start this evening… his best run in a Chelsea shirt.

    Is Frank Lampard starting to get the best out of the 26-year-old?

    He's battling away at the moment.

  • PALACE 1 CHELSEA 2

    48' Chance!

    Reece James was played in behind van Aanholt… and had acres of space to deliver.

    His cut-back was cut out, however, and a decent opportunity goes to waste.

  • SECOND HALF UNDERWAY!

    Can Palace, inspired by that Zaha strike, get themselves back on level terms?

  • ON FIRE HAZARD

    With Christian Pulisic's stunning recent form, comparisons with Chelsea's last talisman Eden Hazard have inevitably surfaced.

    Sky Sports seem to have got the memo, and have compared the pair's respective first seasons at Stamford Bridge.

  • LAW OF AVERAGES…
