Crystal Palace succumbed to a 3-1 defeat away at London rivals Chelsea.

The result leaves the Eagles without a win in six league matches as they look to arrest a worrying slide ahead of matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Chelsea went ahead in the 32nd minute with Alvaro Morata's neat finish from Cesar Azpilicueta's cross from six yards.

Pedro then put the ball in the Palace net but the linesman flagged for offside, much to the relief of the Eagles defence.

Six minutes after the interval, Palace were on level terms as Andros Townsend raced on to a James McArthur through ball and clinically dispatched in to the bottom left corner.

Chelsea regained the lead in the 65th minute after substitute Eden Hazard sent over a free-kick that Patrick van Aanholt missed the flight of and Morata converted at the far post.

Five minutes later it was 3-1 as Pedro lashed in Marcos Alonso's low cross.

Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luis, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho (Fabregas 80), Barkley (Kovacic 64), Pedro, Morata, Willian (Hazard 64).

Not used: Caballero, Zappacosta, Cahill, Loftus-Cheek.

Palace: Hennessey, Wan-Bissaka, Sakho, Tomkins, Van Aanholt, McArthur (Schlupp 80), Kouyate, Milivojevic, Meyer (Ayew 71), Townsend, Zaha.
