Club record win for the blues
Chelsea will be top of the tree at Christmas as the blues earned a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace to extend their lead in the English Premier League.
The win was their 11th successive which equals a club record. Diego Costa headed in Cesar Azpilicueta’s cross to give Chelsea the vital lead. Marcos went close to adding a second when his curling effort hit the underside of the bar.
Chelsea now face Bournemouth at home on Boxing Day in a 3pm kick-off.
