Chelsea thrashed Crystal Palace 4-0 on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

According to Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard should be happy with the team’s progress against Crystal Palace.

Ferdinand said: “I think Frank’s got an idea of how he wants to play with expansive football.

“Today, what was fantastic about the way they played – and I think Palace probably helped them a little bit – [was that] they were very secure in shutting down any counter-attacks, any threats.

“They [Palace] didn’t have any opportunities on goal. That’s what I’d be more proud of and happy about if I was Frank.

“They nullified the other team’s attack but also showed that they are a threat at the other end – and the four goals will tell you that.”

The victory over Crystal Palace was Chelsea’s first clean sheet of the new season.
