Alvaro Morata scored twice to sink Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge and help lift Chelsea above Liverpool into second spot in the Premier League table.
Alvaro Morata has scored in back-to-back league games for Chelsea for the first time since November 2017.
Andros Townsend‚Äôs superb low finish had cancelled out a Chelsea lead given to them by Spanish forward Morata‚Äôs clever shot-on-the-turn.
Palace‚Äôs hopes of securing a crucial point vanished when they conceded two goals in five second-half minutes.
Substitute Eden Hazard marked his return from a back injury by delivering the free-kick for Morata to fire his second before Pedro put the game out of Palace‚Äôs reach.
While unbeaten Chelsea stay two points behind leaders Manchester City, Palace remain three points above the relegation zone after a seventh defeat in 11 league games.
