Chelsea was traumatized ast weekend when they lost 5-2 to West Brom but they the tide today by scoring twice in the opening 10 minutes, during which the overwhelmed home side barely got a kick of the ball.
Kai Havertz curled in the first before turning provider to set up Christian Pulisic to fire the second into the roof of the net from close range.
Kurt Zouma all-but ended the game as a contest on the half-hour mark, rising highest to head in a Mason Mount free-kick.
And the visitors could easily have had more before the break but for some good goalkeeping from Vicente Guaita and a goalline clearance from Patrick van Aanholt to clear another Zouma effort.
Christian Benteke headed in Jeffrey Schlupp’s cross to reduce the deficit to reward an improved second-half showing from Palace with 25 minutes to go, but Pulisic’s far-post finish from Reece James’ cross ended any hope of an unlikely comeback.
