Chelsea win against the forceps

Pochettino’s team struggled to get the better of Crystal Palace (1-1). A penalty from Madueke in the 89th saved him from another problem.

Chelsea are back on track in the Premier League. This Wednesday, the Blues recorded a second success in a row at home to the detriment of Crystal Palace (1-1). A result which erases the setback against Wolverhampton last weekend (1-2).

Madueke gives Chelsea victory

In this match against the London neighbor, Pochettino’s gang had the honor of opening the scoring quite quickly. From the 17e minute, Ukrainian Mykhaylo Mudryk put him on the right track. An advantage which remained in place until regulation time of the 1e period. The moment chosen by Michael Olise to put the two teams back on par.

In the second half, the locals pushed to force the decision. It was a long time without success. In the game, they did not succeed. The Senegalese Nicolas Jackson ended up shaking the nets, but his achievement in the 80e was disallowed due to offside. Fortunately there was a penalty whistled in the 89the. Noni Madueke provoked it, before taking charge of transforming it himself.

Note that Christopher Nkunku played this entry match. Aligned in a false nine role, the former Leipzig player was not able to stand out too much. He gave up his place at 71e minute without being able to influence the fate of the meeting.

By winning this Wednesday, Chelsea breathe a little. The London team returns to number 1e half of the table. She can hope to end the year with another important success, since she travels to promoted Luton on December 30.
