Chilwell gets goal and assist, Jorginho nets late penalty double as Chelsea ease past Palace

Ben Chilwell of Chelsea celebrates with teammate Tammy Abraham and Timo Werner after scoring his sides first goal during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on October 03, 2020 in London, England.

Ben Chilwell scored and assisted on his debut for Chelsea in the Premier League as Frank Lampard's side saw off a stubborn Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had been left frustrated after the first half ended goalless, but the full-back popped up in the right area to give the hosts a scrappy lead five minutes after the restart.

Chilwell had impressed in Chelsea's Carabao Cup ties but had to be patient for his first league appearance following a heel injury.

And he made up for lost time as he set up Chelsea's second, with his cross inch-perfect for Kurt Zouma, who doubled Chelsea's advantage some 15 minutes later with an impressive header.

Jorginho put Chelsea out of sight with two cool penalty conversions in the space of five minutes after Tammy Abraham and Kai Havertz were fouled in the box respectively, as Lampard's men emerged convincing winners in the end.
