A second half goal by Kai Havertz sealed a much needed victory for Chelsea against Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Havertz met Hakim Ziyech’s cross shortly after the hour as the Blues ended a run of three successive defeats in all competitions with a 1-0 win.

The Germany striker should have doubled Chelsea’s advantage but could only flash a header wide from close range from Mason Mount’s cross.

Elsewhere, Newcastle United secured a 1-0 win over Fulham to continue their fantastic run this season.

Substitute Alexander Isak scored the only goal of the game in the 89th minute to cap his return from a long injury layoff.

Later on Sunday, leaders Arsenal will face Tottenham Hotspur in North London Derby.
