Chelsea carried on their quest for the Premier League title with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace away from home on Saturday.
Brazil international Oscar put the Blues ahead as early as the sixth minute, but the hosts were reduced to 10 men in the 40th minute when Cesar Azpilicueta was sent off.
However, Palace defender Damien Delaney was also dismissed before the half-time interval, and Cesc Fabregas made it 2-0 to Chelsea just six minutes into the second half.
Fraizer Campbell halved the deficit late on to give Jose Mourinho’s side a scare, but the visitors eventually picked up the three points.
The win at Selhurst Park means that Chelsea are still at the top of the Premier League with 22 points from eight matches, five points clear of second-placed Manchester City.
Following the match, a number of Chelsea players took to social networking site Twitter to revel in the victory. Below are the best reactions:
