Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois kept his 10th clean sheet of the season against Crystal Palace, and he only had one save to make throughout the game.
The Belgian hailed the win, while also hailing Fabregas’ impact in the game.
“It’s going very well,” said the Chelsea goalkeeper. “I didn’t have so much work on Saturday, there was one save low down to my left and I came to claim a couple of high balls well, so after that they had to put the crosses further away from me.
“In the first 20 minutes of the second half we suffered but I think when Cesc came on we found more balls between the lines and it became calmer for us. We had some good chances, we didn’t take them, but I think we deserved to win.
“It was a good clean sheet, good work from all the team and another victory so we’re happy. Now we want to enjoy Christmas and after that we have another important game against Bournemouth.” He said.
