Alvaro Morata scored as Chelsea reached second place in the table with Crystal Palace
Morata vs Lukaku vs. Firmino
Strikers often steal the headlines after a match. You may have scored the winning goal or missed the crucial opportunity.
Morata has garnered numerous criticisms since moving to England, but has beaten Palace and has now scored four goals in their last four games. For the context, he had two of his previous 20 before that last run.
Chelsea supporters were quick to point out that Morata now scored more goals than Manchester United's Liverpool's Roberto Firmino and Romelu Lukaku in the face of fierce criticism from rival fans.
"Alvaro Morata, he scores when he wants," she sang in Stamford Bridge. I'm not sure what happened before, but he really wants the goals now.
Alonso is not out of 100
It was a landmark milestone on Stamford Bridge for Marcos Alonso, Wayne Hennessey and Patrick van Aanholt.
The Crystal Palace couple finally had little to cheer, but for Alonso he celebrated his 100th appearance in the Premier League with three points and a support for his name.
Alonso has progressed immensely since joining Chelsea in 2016, having previously struggled with Sunderland and Bolton Wanderers.
Alonso is now one of the league's best defenders. Alonso is no longer with 100 missions, many more will follow.

Ranieri sits down in the stands
After being in the stands in Cardiff on Saturday to see his old team Leicester City scoring a tribute for their deceased owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, the Italian saw another of his former teams on Sunday.
The Italian succeeded Chelsea between 2000 and 2004 and the club still has a special place in his heart.
Ranieri will undoubtedly be impressed by another 'Sarri Ball' performance under another Italian in Maurizio Sarri, which was too good for Palace.

Zaha & # 39; flip-flap & # 39; about Rudiger
Antonio Rudiger does not want to see Wilfried Zaha so fast.
The German defender remained with his legs crossed when Zaha brought him one-to-one on the left. The Ivorian winger then went on to show off his abilities by producing a successful "Flip Flap".
The ability is to move the ball with the outside and then the inside of your boot to confuse your marker and free you. Zaha left Rudiger with ease, but his cross eventually became nothing.

Townsend finally hits the net
For Andros Townsend meant the goal to 1-1 more than many could initially imagine.
He broke away from marker David Luiz before passing goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and finishing 31 shots without a goal.
That was the longest run of all players, but now the dreary run is over. Chief Roy Hodgson will hope that the winger is quickly back under the gates.
Danger from the bank
He had not been in the field for more than a minute when he was fouled for the free-kick that led to Chelsea's second goal.
Eden Hazard stayed on the bench to start, recovering from a back injury. Since the game was at 1: 1, his boss turned to him and needed some magic.
Hazard dusted off the foul, whipped the ball from the right and Morata did well to shoot into the corner. The brilliance of the Belgians awaits the most followers.
