Maurizio Sarri was delighted with the Blues' performance against Crystal Palace, labelling the performance as 'very good'.

It's been a good week for Chelsea as they produced back-to-back away wins, beating Watford on Boxing Day and now Crystal Palace a few days later.

Domination was the word to sum up the performance on Sunday afternoon, however it only produced one goal, courtesy of N'Golo Kante.

Talking on the win, Sarri said: "We played against a dangerous opponent. We played a very good match for 85 minutes.

"We were in good control, but we didn't kill the match, so it was difficult to defend in the box for the last five minutes."

Once again, the performance highlighted Chelsea's lack of cutting edge in the final third.

The January window in nearly upon, and whether Maurizio Sarri will draft in any new signings, we will have to wait and see.
