Olivier Giroud starts for Chelsea in their game against Crystal Palace as Antonio Conte tries to steer the club's season back on track.
It was 2-0 seven minutes later with a goal that was as elegant in its creation as it was farcical in its final moments. Willian has only completed 90 minutes six times this season and played less than half the matches during Chelsea's downturn since the new year.
Olivier Giroud had several chances of opening his account for the Blues but was unlucky to not be rewarded as his shot hit the post. It began with Cesc Fàbregas spinning a pass from deep inside his own half to release Marcos Alonso down the left. Giroud came close to turning in a long-range shot from N'Golo Kante and then the French striker headed over.
If he can find an end product to his penetrative runs and earn a little more luck than he got at Stamford Bridge in the first leg, Willian could help Chelsea spring a surprise.
He said: "Normally when you come against a team not having the best of times, that can be a very unsafe time to play them". For sure, compare that with the Barcelona game, I think we were not so good in ball possession.
Chelsea were on top for most of the first half and attempted a total of 16 shots, though both of their goals had more than a hint of fortune about them.
Chelsea's dominance finally broke the resistance of Palace and it was a goal of individual quality from the right boot of Willian on 25 minutes. It wasn't to be though, as Chelsea failed to make the most of the chances they created and ended the game conceding a late goal when former Blue Patrick van Aanholt netted for the Eagles.
Chelsea are looking to reinvigorate their chase for a top four finish, while Crystal Palace will be in survival mode when the two sides clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Thibaut Courtois should be the man in goal.
Palace nearly pulled one back early in the second half, as Sorloth charged through on goal and blasted against the left-hand post.
You know what they say, you either win or you learn and Chelsea have been doing a lot of learning this season.
