The Blues are flying high under Lampard, who knows the club inside out owing to his time there, and this win over Palace now takes them to second in the Premier League table, with Manchester City taking on Liverpool on Sunday at Anfield.
The goals for Chelsea came in the second half, with in-form striker Tammy Abraham beating the offside trap and slotting home, before Christian Pulisic doubled their advantage before the end with a headed finish.
The English giants came back from 4-1 down at Stamford Bridge during their midweek UEFA Champions League (UCL) match against Ajax to draw 4-4, and it appears that the reigning Europa League Champions are on the road to success under Lampard.
