Crystal Palace reserves slumped to a 4-0 defeat in the league away to Chelsea.

Kit Symons fielded a young second string bolstered with more experienced players Mark Hudson, Jon Macken and Tommy Black.

Danny Hollands fired Chelsea into a 17th minute lead, volleying in a spectacular effort from the left of the area.

Despite having most of the play, Chelsea went in at half-time just a goal to the good.

Michael Mancienne doubled the Blues' lead on 65 minutes and two minutes later, Joe Tillen made it 3-0.

Substitute Scott Sinclair netted a fourth goal for Chelsea near the end as Palace's reserves suffered their fourth straight defeat.

Palace: Banks, Starkey, Fray, Welch (Straker 89), Hudson (Swaibu 75), Wilson, Berry, R Hall, Grabban, Macken (Spence 75), Black.
