It was a good weekend of football for Chelsea, as the Blues defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

After a stunning display against the Eagles, BBC Sport analyst Garth Crooks included two Chelsea players in his team of the week, and Chelsea loanee Ross Barkley was also named in the team of the week after a good game that saw Aston Villa beat Liverpool 7-2.

Ben Chilwell and Jorginho made the squad, as the Chelsea left-back was included in the three-man defence alongside Everton’s Yerry Mina and West Ham United’s Angelo Ogbonna.

Chilwell deserved the nomination, due to his goal and assist, and Jorginho scored two goals from the spot.

“How well did Ben Chilwell dispatch that?’ said Crooks of Chilwell’s opening goal in our 4-0 victory over the Eagles.

“Head down, toe down and wallop! The new Chelsea signing wasn’t joking when he smashed the ball into the back of the Crystal Palace net.

“Chilwell has a lovely left foot and used it to cut Palace to shreds.”

Speaking about Jorginho, Crooks said: “His style of penalty taking is unique but very effective,’ added the former England international forward.

“Having the ability to take your eye off the ball and watch the keeper takes skill and a lot of nerve.”
