Lampard added. "Every team has players who can hurt you on the counter attack and Zaha is one of the best but could we hurt him the other way? make him run back more than he ran forward?"

Reece James battles with Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha.

Frank Lampard has praised the young players in his team after they helped seal a sixth successive Premier League victory to move up to second place in the table.

"I trust in Reece defensively so really, really impressive game for him and he's going to get much better".

The Blues had a frustrating first half where they struggled to breach the Eagles backline but things changed shortly after the break with Willian providing a delightful flick assist for Abraham's goal. "I think we deserved it in the end". Not just myself, but Jody [Morris], Joe [Edwards], Chris Jones, we do know the club, we do feel the club and we do know them. They're also surrounded by some fantastic experienced players.

Chelsea had four academy graduates starting and it was one of those - Tammy Abraham - who vitally broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute.

Mateo Kovacic was involved in the build-up when Chelsea went ahead, but it was Willian's classy touch that put Abraham through. His goal was the fifth in the Premier League, all in his last three games, and already the most he has scored in five league seasons in Europe.

The most incredible piece of skill came from the boots of the United States global who, for a moment, looked like Eden Hazard when he produced the skill of the game in a first-half dribble and shot.

Chelsea can boast six league wins in a row for the first time since Antonio Conte was in charge when the Blues won the title in 2017.

Mason Mount believes Chelsea's youthful revolution will continue to gather pace as the season progresses.

Pulisic, who has now scored five goals in Chelsea's last three Premier League games, wrapped up the victory with his 79th-minute strike, heading in after substitute Michy Batshuayi's blocked shot bounced up for the United States worldwide.
