Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and it was the sixth consecutive victory for Frank Lampard’s side.

Second-half goals from Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic gave Chelsea a deserved victory at the Bridge, and Kurt Zouma has revealed that he was pleased with the clean sheet that the team got.

“We’re delighted,” he said. “We’re working hard every day to get wins and this was the sixth one. We were patient, we scored two goals and didn’t concede any so we’re very happy.

“As a defender I’m very happy with the clean sheet and it’s really important for us to keep clean sheets, to keep that confidence high. It’s just about communication and working hard.

“You have to be in the right position at the right time, talk to your team-mate next to you, and do it all together. We did it well.”

Chelsea’s defence got the better of Zaha, and Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has admitted his star player Wilfried Zaha wasn’t at his best against Chelsea.

Speaking about Zaha’s performance against Chelsea, Hodgson said: “Wilf is doing what he needs for the team, he is working hard for the team.

“Against Arsenal he had an incredible game, and against Leicester, perhaps today (against Chelsea) he wasn’t at his very best but that is what football is, unfortunately.

“They are human beings.”
