Chelsea secured a late winner against Crystal Palace

Noni Madueke secured a 2-1 win for Chelsea with a late penalty against Crystal Palace, providing some relief for the struggling team.

Despite an early lead from Mauricio Pochettino’s side through Mykhailo Mudryk, the hosts equalized with a goal from Michael Olise. Chelsea’s owner Todd Boehly has invested heavily in the team, but they have suffered numerous defeats in 2023. The win leaves Palace just three points above the relegation zone, placing coach Roy Hodgson under pressure.

Despite missing key players due to suspension, Chelsea dominated the first half and created several chances. Mudryk opened the scoring, but Olise equalized before halftime. The second half saw Palace applying pressure, but it was Chelsea who claimed victory with Madueke’s late penalty.

Chelsea fans were initially frustrated by a disallowed goal but celebrated Madueke’s successful penalty and the team’s hard-fought win.
