Comments:

League position: 5th Chelsea had now conceded five goals in their last ten games in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. Willian had now scored 13 goals for the Blues in all competitions so far in this season; his highest total in a season for the club. They avoided losing three consecutive top division home London derbies to the same opposition for the first time since 1974 against Arsenal.

Comments:

League position: 18th Crystal Palace had now taken two points from their last seven games in the Premier League. This was now the tenth game so far in this season that Wilfried Zaha had not started for Palace in the Premier League and they had lost all ten games. Patrick Van Aanholt's goal was the 800th scored in this Premier League season.
