Chelsea clashed heads with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park earlier today as they looked to earn a positive result in the London derby. The Blues made a poor start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the seventh minute when Odsonne Édouard found the back of the net. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised for the West London club in the 38th minute as the two London sides went into the half-time interval with a 1-1 scoreline.

Conor Gallagher came off the bench and scored a wonderful goal for Chelsea in the 90th minute as Graham Potter’s men ended up securing a hard-fought 2-1 win on their travels.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the clash against the Eagles.

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 6.5/10

The Spanish keeper made a couple of solid saves at the back and did enough to restrict the Eagles from scoring more than once.

RB: Reece James – 7/10

The English talent kept a solid defensive shape at the back and made two good chances in the final third.

CB: Wesley Fofana – 6.5/10

He made a handful of important interceptions at the back and was accurate with his passing.

CB: Thiago Silva – 7.5/10

The Brazilian centre-back kept things solid when defending inside his half and was fortunate to stay on the field. He picked up an assist for setting up Aubameyang’s goal.
