Chelsea have registered a dominating 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge. The newcomer full-back Ben Chilwell, who became the star of the match with a goal and an assist on his debut, sheds praise over the stupendous team game of the hosts and elaborates the hunger his squad has to taste silverware.

Coming off of a narrow 3-3 draw against West Brom last weekend, Chelsea went all-in against Palace in a four-goal thriller at home.

With his first appearance for Chelsea in the Premier League which was also his 100th league appearance, Ben Chilwell scored the first goal in the 50th minute, hammering the ball into the net from a calculated pass from Tammy Abraham.
