Chelse edge past Crystal Palace, beating the Eagles by 2-1 at home

Chelsea successfully passed a crucial test in the match against Crystal Palace, a boxing day duel in Week 19 of the 2023/2024 Premier League. The Blues are back to winning ways on Wednesday, playing at Stamford Bridge, CHE's head coach Mauricio Pochettino appeared strong to beat the visiting team Palace with a score of 2-1. The match was not easy, Chelsea was almost forced to draw.

This time the 22-year-old Mykhailo Mudryk put Chelsea ahead with a goal in the 13th minute. The Eagles then equalised through Michael Olise in the 45+1 minute. Palace played quite well and almost forced a draw. Luckily, Chelsea could retake the lead through Noni Madueke's penalty goal in the 89th minute. This result is crucial for the confidence of the Chelsea squad. They have had problems with inconsistency in recent weeks. In the last five matches, Chelsea has only won twice.

Last week, they surprisingly lost 1-2 at home to Wolverhampton. That's why the match against Palace was crucial to get back to winning ways. "When you enter a match with results that are not good enough, there will always be difficulties. The match was very difficult, but I am satisfied with our overall performance," said Pochettino. "We didn't start the match well, we were a little nervous and struggled because we were too thinking about this match which we had to win," he said.

Chelsea was almost forced to draw by Palace, scoring 1-1 until entering the final 10 minutes. Luckily, the substitute players came in and had a positive impact. "We created opportunities to score goals. In the second half, we started well, played more freely, and I am very happy that the players from the bench could have a positive impact," added the Blues head coach.
