KO
  • GOOOOOAAAALLLL!!!! Palace lead!!!! Edouard turns on halfway and heads for goal before finding Ayew. Wide to the right, the Ghanaian crosses into the area, where Edouard sneaks between his markers to stroke the ball past Kepa and into the top corner!!! Soft defence maybe, but a clinical finish from the Palace striker to put his side 1-0 up!

  • Ayew wins the ball from Silva and looks to bear down on goal, but the Chelsea defender strikes the ball with his hand as he falls, and is booked! The Palace players think it was certainly deliberate and demand a red card, but it's just a yellow for now at least!

  • GOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! We are level!!! James' cross-field pass finds Silva in the box, and he heads it onto Aubameyang, who turns and fires a shot into the bottom corner, leaving Guaita with no chance!!!! 1-1, and it's a first goal in Chelsea blue for the ex-Arsenal and Barcelona striker!

  • Clyne won't play any further part in this match, and James Tomkins replaces him. The change will likely see Ward move to right-back with Tomkins in the centre of defence.

  • GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL!!!!!! What a strike!!!! And guess who it is!!!! Pulisic cuts inside and beats one before finding Gallagher, who picks out the top corner from the edge of the box with an absolutely thunderous strike!!! What a hit, and what a way to potentially win this game, and it's all the more heartbreaking for Palace, who go 2-1 down thanks to their former loanee with mere moments left to play!
