(EFE) – The American Christian Pulisic expanded the progression of Chelsea, who thrashed Crystal Palace in Selhurst Park (1-4) to settle among the top four of the Premier, from which Liverpool comes.
Thomas Tuchel’s team, who proposed an eleven with numerous novelties, prolonged the euphoria with which he started a week in which he left the pass for the semifinals of the Champions League on track after beating Porto with a win in this London derby .
Tuchel guarded Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Hakim Ziyech, NGolo Kanté and Marcos alonso, among others.
The Blues were a nightmare for Spanish goal Vicente Guaita, beaten four times. Pulisic took advantage of his minutes and it was a nightmare for Roy Hodgson’s team that falls on the table away from the European positions.
In half an hour Crystal Palace had already conceded three goals after the avalanche of the visitors. Kay Havertz on a pass from Callum Hudson Odoi opened the scoring in the eighth minute. Two later Pulisic scored after receiving a ball from Havertz and in the 30th, Kurt Zouma finished a cross from Mason Mount.
The crash ran out of history for the second half. Chelsea slowed down although they were able to get a jackpot. At game time, Crystal Palace closed the gap thanks to Christian Benteke, although Pulisic rounded off the blue victory and his performance by scoring the fourth in the 78th.
The victory places Chelsea fourth, two points behind Leicester, third, and six points behind Manchester United. Twenty separate him from the leader, Manchester City.
