Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Premier League Match Result February 2024

Chelsea climbed into the upper half of the Premier League after a somewhat unconvincing yet productive performance against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Despite controlling possession for much of the first half, Chelsea struggled to create goal-scoring opportunities and lacked creativity in the final third. 

Crystal Palace gradually asserted themselves, taking the lead with a spectacular goal from Jefferson Lerma, who unleashed a rocket past Dorde Petrovic for his inaugural goal with the Eagles.

In the second half, Conor Gallagher, responsible for Chelsea's sole shot in the initial 45 minutes, equalized by converting Malo Gusto's assist, injecting hope for the visitors. The pace slowed, hinting at a draw until Raheem Sterling initiated a counter-attack, setting up Cole Palmer, who then found Gallagher on the box's edge. 

The former Palace midfielder secured victory with a low finish, furthering the visitors' lead. In the dying moments, Enzo Fernandez sealed the match with an exquisite goal. Conor Gallagher sparks Chelsea's late surge, haunting Crystal Palace on his return to Selhurst Park.
