EPL: Morata Strikes Twice As Chelsea Overtake Liverpool After Derby Win
After beating Crystal Palace 3-1 in Sunday's London Derby at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have leapfrogged into second place above Liverpool and just behind Manchester City on the Premier League log.
The derby win is quite historic as Maurizio Sarri has equalled the record for the longest managerial unbeaten streak at the start of a Premier League career courtesy of the 3-1 win over the Eagles on Sunday.
A brace from Alvaro Morata and third from Pedro were enough for the Blues to extend their run to 11 games without defeat from the start of the season, leapfrogging Liverpool into second place in the process.
Andros Townsend restored parity for Palace at one stage in the second half, but two goals in the space of five minutes saw the hosts take the game beyond their London rivals to remain just two points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
While it is going on smooth and nice for the Blues, Nigeria's Victor Moses has been left in the lurch as he was not even in the match day squad let alone get any playing time on Sunday.
Moses has played just 26 minutes in the EPL this season compared to 2498 minutes in the 2016/17 league-winning season.
