BEN CHILWELL has had a Chelsea Premier League debut to remember as he helped the Blues to a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace with a goal and assist.
The left-back netted the opener from close range and followed that up with a pinpoint cross for Kurt Zouma to head home a second.
Jorginho then added two penalties as Cesar Azpilicueta was forced to intervene when Tammy Abraham attempted to grab the ball off for the Italian and take the second kick.

Jorginho (78′ minutes pen, 82′ minutes pen)
Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell, speaking to BT Sport: “It was a brilliant team performance, and I’m obviously very happy with my personal performance. We kept a clean sheet, which was important for us, and scored four great goals as a team. We showed our hunger to press for the whole 90 minutes.
“In the first half we were patient but maybe didn’t take enough risks in the final third. The gaffer said at half-time we need to be more creative in the final third, and in the second half we showed that.
“I’ve heard the Premier League’s a lot different to other leagues, so it’s going to take the new signings time to adjust. Everyone worked hard today and they’re starting to gel.
“The reason we’ve all come here is because we feel the team can win stuff. We just need to keep working hard and producing performances like today.”
