The game was barely five minutes old when Brazilian flair player Oscar pinged in this delicious free-kick, an unstoppable effort past Julian Speroni’s despairing dive.

Spaniard Cesar Azpilicueta was ordered off after a fairly hideous two footed challenge on Palace hard-man Mile Jedinak, though the home side were down to ten men two minutes later when Damien Delaney picked up his second booking.

Cesc Fabregas scored a quality second goal to give the Blues some breathing space, combininig well with team-mates before slotting home.

Frazier Campbell scored a late consolation after good work from loaned in winger Wilfried Zaha but it wasn’t enough to prevent table toppers Chelsea returning to Stamford Bridge with yet another three point haul.
