Premier League

Three Talking Points as Chelsea collect three vital points at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea is finally back to winning ways after two consecutive defeats. A win over Palace would serve as a morale booster for Graham Potter, whose career is in jeopardy after an unconvincing performance this season. 

Kai Havertz's thumping header midway through the second half was enough to give the Blues their first win in five games

Following Chelsea's 1-0 victory over Palace, the following observations were made:

Mudhryk's official unveiling

Chelsea celebrated the arrival of the new boy with a crucial victory over Palace. The 22-year-old winger's £87 million transfer was confirmed 22 minutes into the game. After being confirmed, Mykhailo Mudryk was paraded onto the pitch at halftime, and Chelsea have received a massive boost for the upcoming matches. The winger will wear jersey number 15.

Benoit's official debut

Benoit Badiashile made his full debut against Palace, becoming Chelsea's 28th player to receive Premier League minutes at the halfway point of the season. The former Monaco defender was instrumental in the Blues' 1-0 victory over Patrick Viera's side.

More shots registered

Chelsea's game has improved slightly, and there was some flair in the final third, but they still lacked precision. The blues registered a total of 15 shots and 5 were on target
