The Crystal Palace Eagle

Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

Chelsea continued their outstanding start to the season with an away win against Crystal Palace.

Oscar and Cesc Fabregas put the Blues 2-0 up before Fraizer Campbell's late strike made for a jittery final few minutes, but the visitors held on, and they stretched their lead at the top of the table back to five points.

Chelsea were without top-scorer Diego Costa, with Loic Remy replacing the Spaniard up front, but they did not miss him, with Oscar netting after just six minutes before Fabregas scored his first Premier League goal for the Blues 10 minutes after half-time.

Campbell scored with just moments remaining, but it was too late for the Eagles to take something from the match and they have now suffered back-to-back defeats after falling to Hull prior to the international break.
