EPL: Record set by Chelsea after beating Crystal Palace 4-1 at Selhurst Park


Chelsea climb into the EPL top four following a dominant victory over Crystal Palace. First-half goals from Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Kurt Zouma put the Blues in control in the first half

However, Christian Benteke gave Palace hope after the break, but Pulisic's second goal of the day put the contest beyond any doubt.
