Ben Chilwell scored his first Chelsea goal as the defender's dynamic display on his Premier League debut for the Blues inspired a 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace on Saturday. Hampered by a heel injury, Chilwell had a delayed start to his first season with Chelsea following his £50 million (Rs 474 crore) move from Leicester in August.

Jorginho scores brace
