Trevoh Chalobah scored the pick of the goals on his Premier League debut as Champions League winners Chelsea made light work of Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.
Chalobah who used to be a ballboy at Stamford Bridge — drilled in from 20 yards to wrap up a comfortable and convincing win, with Patrick Vieira’s visitors looking toothless throughout.
Marcos Alonso opened the scoring with a dipping free-kick while Christian Pulisic also fired in during a dominant first half showing.
“It is a dream for a boy like me being here and to play for my home club is unreal,” Chalobah said after the game.
“As I was getting closer to the goal I though I might as well shoot and just went for it.
“I didn’t know the ball went in, I did not know what to do. I was over the moon.
“I have been training with the team in preseason and the manager said I was playing and I was ready. I was surprised by the Super Cup game too and I have taken the opportunity with both hands.”
The result means Patrick Vieira starts his tenure at Crystal Palace with a loss. The ex-New York City FC boss was appointed coach after Roy Hodgson stepped down during the summer following four years in the role.
