Chelsea got a straight 3-point win at Stamford Bridge today, March 10 in their Premier League match against Crystal Palace.
Chelsea had 27 shots in that match. Twenty-seven! That’s a lot, isn’t it? And they scored with a deflection and an own goal. Palace meanwhile had nine shots, and only two on target.
A decent performance from Chelsea, who with slightly better finishing would have secured a win of morale-boostingly large proportions. But Palace improved after half-time, following the introduction of Zaha, and at times made them look decidedly wobbly.
They hit the post, they had a goal wrongly disallowed, scored a fine goal and had Chelsea clinging on to the three points at the end. So Chelsea get points, but Palace get some encouragement. They remain in the bottom three, but given their remaining fixtures and the return of Zaha surely won’t remain there.
