A rare feeling for Chelsea, who are yet to record a loss in four matches now. Goals from Oscar, Willian and Costa secured a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
It will be Chelsea’s first win under Hiddink and their first of the new year.
Even with Hazard going off due to injury, Chelsea played a supreme match, with Costa setting up Oscar for the opener.
The second half was a mirror of Chelsea’s dominance, as they controlled proceedings. Deservedly, the best Chelsea player this season, Willian doubled the lead after beautiful build up.
Chelsea were not done with Crystal Palace and that was evident six minutes later, when Willian turned provider and Costa scored the third and final goal.
