  • It's all over at Stamford Bridge. Crystal Palace gave a good account of themselves, but were unable to get themselves level as Ramires' stunning strike is all that separates the sides at the end of 90 minutes.

  • Puncheon with a terrific run forward, but can't quite get the final ball into the box.

    90+4
  • Palace well on top now, but is it too little too late?
