Palace's defense survived a Chelsea onslaught in the first half — the Blues recording 11 shots to zero for Palace at the break — but Tammy Abraham broke the deadlock soon after.

Abraham read the game well to beat Palace's offside trap in the 52nd minute and met a backheel pass from Willian before shooting low for his 10th league goal of the season.

Pulisic ensured Chelsea's sixth consecutive league win in the 79th with a header when Michy Batshuayi's shot was deflected and looped into the air.

The American didn't get a Premier League start from August until 26 October, when he took full advantage with a hat trick against Burnley. He followed up a week later with a goal against Watford.
