Crystal Palace 1-2 Chelsea: Jose Mourinho praises Cesc Fabregas

Manager Jose Mourinho says Cesc Fabregas' strike in the 2-1 away victory against Crystal Palace is Chelsea's goal of the season so far.

Oscar opened the scoring from a 25-yard free-kick, before Fabregas made it two with his first league goal for the club. Cesar Azpilicueta and Palace defender Damien Delaney were dismissed and Fraizer Campbell's late goal provided a scare but Jose Mourinho's men held on.

The victory means Chelsea maintain a five-point advantage over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.
