Although not many are considering Chelsea for the title race, the Blues are in good form and have won the last six league games.
Chelsea are currently third in the league, pending Liverpool’s clash against Manchester City later today.
Former Chelsea star Joe Cole now tipped Chelsea to be among the contenders for the Premier League title this season.
“There in and amongst it now,” Cole said of Chelsea’s title chances.
“It’s an amazing performance. At half time we were a bit worried because Palace defended so well in the first half.
“But Chelsea stuck to their guns, moved Palace about and eventually the opening came.
“Willian he stood up today, he’s been brilliant all season and has got the captain’s armband today. The youngsters were brilliant.
“It’s an exciting for Chelsea, onwards and upwards. Second in the table and who would have thought that at the start of the season.
“Frank won’t thank us for it he’d like to be even more quiet about it.”
