EPL: Kante Scores As Chelsea Win Derby Clash Against Crystal Palace
N'Golo Kante scored the only goal of the London derby between Crystal Palace and Chelsea on Sunday at Selhurst Park.
The French star was on target in the 51st minute to help Chelsea secure a lone goal win and all three points on offer in the derby clash.
With the slim win, the Blues made the most of dropped points by Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal yesterday as they consolidated their place in the top four of the Premier League.
Palace's three-match unbeaten festive run ended with a whimper as they failed to register a single shot on target, and they could have been more soundly beaten had a couple of debatable offside calls not gone in their favour.
The Eagles had kept three successive home clean sheets in the Premier League prior to kickoff and proved difficult for Chelsea to break down during the first half.
Chelsea’s breakthrough came six minutes into the second half as Luiz found the run of Kante, who brought down the chipped through-ball and squeezed his shot under the arms of Guaita from 10 yards out.
The effort proved enough as Chelsea kept the lead to the end of the match to increase their points haul to 43 points from 20 games.
