Alvaro Morata scored twice as unbeaten Chelsea climbed to second in the Premier League with a 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
After Liverpool drew at Arsenal on Saturday, Chelsea knew victory would send them second and in-form Spain Morata saw them on their way with two smart finishes.
Pedro's cross in the 32nd minute, then – after Andros Townsend equalized – the often maligned Morata lashed home from a tight angle in the 65th minute for his fourth goal in four league matches.
Pedro then sealed the victory five minutes later, Marcos Alonso's cross in the 70th minute for a Chelsea side, who welcomed Eden Hazard as a second-half substitute.
Chelsea, one of three unbeaten sides, have 27 points from 11 games – two fewer than leaders Manchester City and Liverpool in third on goal difference.
Palace, meanwhile, have been twice in the league this season and remain 14th with eight points.
