Chelsea 2 v 1 Crystal Palace: Late Madueke penalty helps Chelsea beat Palace

Noni Madueke scored an 89th-minute winner from the penalty spot to help Chelsea overcome Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

The hosts deservedly went in front in the 13th minute after good work from Malo Gusto ended with the full-back squaring the ball to Mykhailo Mudryk to net from close range.

But Palace levelled on the stroke of half-time when Michael Olise brought down Jordan Ayew’s cross and smashed an effort into the bottom corner.

Chelsea created numerous chances throughout, and it looked as if Mauricio Pochettino’s men would pay for their wasteful finishing for a second consecutive match.
