Chelsea secured a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace with late goals from Conor Gallagher and Enzo Fernandez, easing pressure on manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Crystal Palace impressed in the first half, taking the lead through Jefferson Lerma’s stunning long-range strike. However, Chelsea fought back after the break, with Gallagher equalizing shortly after the restart.
Gallagher then secured his brace in injury time, capitalizing on a rare opportunity to snatch the win for Chelsea. Fernandez added further misery for Palace with a late goal, sealing the victory for the visitors.
Despite Palace’s strong performance, particularly in the absence of key players, Chelsea’s resilience and Gallagher’s clinical finishing proved decisive. The win lifts Chelsea into the top half of the Premier League table, while Palace remains in 15th place, five points clear of relegation.
