Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea
Minute Commentary
90' FINAL WHISTLE!
And there's the final whistle and it's Palace with their first win of the season! Quite a performance from the Eagles.
90' INTO ADDED TIME
Five minutes to be played. Plenty of time for Chelsea to find a late equaliser
86' MISS!
Oh my, what a chance for Patrick Van Aanholt on the rebound, but he fired it wide while Thibaut Courtois was down. Will that come back to haunt the Eagles?
85' CHANGE FOR PALACE
Double change for Palace as Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Jairo Riedewald come on in place of Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur
83' YELLOW CARD
Caution shown to Scott Dann
75' PALACE CHANGE
First sub for Palace as Jason Puncheon comes on in place of Jeff Schlupp
73' SAVE!
Palace defense really being tested here, but Julian Speroni has come up huge, most recently an excellent save on Marcos Alonso off a corner kick.
71' YELLOW CARD
First caution of the game shown to Luka Milivojevic
70' TWENTY TO PLAY
Twenty to play in south London with the hosts clinging to the lead. Chelsea have put a few shots on target that Julian Speroni has saved easily, now it's a matter of whether the Palace defence can hold out for the result
66' ANOTHER SUB FOR CHELSEA
Another sub for Chelsea here as youngster Charly Musonda comes on in place of Willian
59' SHOT
Pedro fires one on target, but it is saved quickly by Julian Speroni
57' CHELSEA SUB
Chelsea making a change here as Pedro comes on in place of Michy Batshuayi
50' CROSSBAR!
Cesc Fabregas rockets one off the crossbar as Chelsea look to be gaining some attacking fluidity
46' UNDERWAY
Second half is underway at Selhurst. Should be a fascinating final 45 minutes
45' HALFTIME
Halftime in south London with Palace in front. Can they maintain their level in the second half?
45' INTO ADDED TIME
Two minutes of added time to be played
45' GOAL PALACE!
It's a perfect time to score for Palace as Mamadou Sakho does really well to step up and aggressively win the ball back before sliding it into the path of Zaha, who calmly collected and slotted it far corner past Courtois
41' CLOSE AGAIN FOR CHELSEA
A free kick from Cesc Fabregas goes inches wide of the top right corner as we are inside the final five minutes of the opening half at Selhurst
39' PALACE CLOSE AGAIN!
Excellent build-up play from Palace and the move is capped by a shot from Andros Townsend, but it flies wide
37' CHELSEA PLAYER DOWN
Chelsea could have a problem on their hands here as Victor Moses is down receiving treatment. He was down for a few minutes and is up and walking slowly off the pitch
30' PACE SLOWED
The pace of this contest seems to finally have slowed a bit after frentic start. Palace doing a nice job keeping the ball in the attacking third, but they'll need to create more quality chances if they are to score again.
23' CLOSE!
Close for Palace as Wilfried Zaha rips one on target that goes through the legs of Gary Cahill, just wide of the far post and out for a corner.
19' PALACE RESPONSE
Palace's lead lasted only 7 mnutes, how will they respond to being pegged back so quickly?
18' GOAL CHELSEA
Chelsea get level thanks to an excellent header off a corner kick by Tiemoue Bakayoko
11' GOAL PALACE!
And there iit is, the first goal of the season for Palace. It's a failed clearance from David Luiz that pings off the leg of Yohan Cabaye and in behind Thibaut Courtois to give the hosts the lead.
7' MORE PRESSURE
Palace keeping the pressure on early as they look for their first goal of the season. Patrick Van Aanholt fired one toward goal but it sailed over the bar. The Eagles look up for the challenge today
3' TAILS UP FOR PALACE
Tails up early on for Palace as a defensive mistake allows Wilfried Zaha in on goal. He got a shot away from close range, but Thibaut Courtois made the nice save
1' UNDERWAY
And we're underway at Selhurst Park with Palace fans in full voice
0' CHELSEA TEAM NEWS
And here is the news for the defending champions. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal with Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz and Gary Cahill in a back three. Victor Moses, Cesc Fabregas, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Marcos Alonso will be in midfield along with Willian, Michy Batshuayi and Eden Hazard in a front three.
