Chelsea 4-0 Crystal Palace: Cesar Azpilicueta refused to let Tammy Abraham take second penalty


Chelsea sealed a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Second-half goals from Ben Chilwell, Kurt Zouma and Jorginho’s brace from the penalty spot secured all three points for Frank Lampard’s side.

They won two late penalties in the match, both of which were scored by Jorginho, but captain Cesar Azpilicueta had to intervene after Tammy Abraham tried to take the second one.

Abraham went over to the spot to try and take the spot-kick but Azpilicueta got in his way and handed the ball to Jorginho.

The Spanish full-back has earned a lot of praise for intervening and preventing a possibly uncomfortable moment.

Abraham was visibly frustrated, quite understandably considering Chelsea’s lead at the time, but Frank Lampard made clear in his post-game interview that Jorginho is his No.1 penalty taker.

Chelsea struggled to break Palace down in the first half but the floodgates opened shortly after the restart, beginning with Chilwell’s strike on his first Premier League appearance for the Blues.

The left-back then turned provider, with Zouma heading home his cross in the 66th minute.


Crystal Palace conceded two late penalties, both of which were scored by Jorginho, as the Blues recorded an impressive win in the London derby.
