Two Chelsea players made the BBC Team of the Week following Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Chelsea are now third on the table following the win over Crystal Palace and Manchester City’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Willian and Christian Pulisic were included in the Team of the Week.

On Willian’s inclusion in the Team of the Week, Garth Crooks wrote on BBC: “What a clever move by Frank Lampard to make Willian captain. The Brazilian is now an elder statesman at Stamford Bridge and the perfect candidate to bring the Chelsea youngsters through.

“He is also the best player in the team and can command the respect of some very talented but inexperienced young players. The flick on the edge of the Crystal Palace box to open up the space for Tammy Abraham to score was just wonderful. He’s not a screamer either. Thank goodness the game has dispensed with the screamers.”

On Pulisic, Crooks said: “Joel Ward should be given time off to get over the run-around Christian Pulisic gave him at Stamford Bridge in the London derby.

“Within the opening exchanges the American danced round the full-back only to be saved by Crystal Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita. Pulisic then stepped over the ball so emphatically Ward nearly had to pay to get back in the ground.

“Pulisic not only loves taking players on but scoring goals and he’s good at it. He’s not afraid to get in where it hurts either which is always a very good indicator.”
