Chelsea beats Crystal Palace 1-0 to ease pressure on Potter

LONDON (AP) — Chelsea eased the pressure on manager Graham Potter by securing just a second Premier League victory since October with a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge. Kai Havertz headed in the winning goal in the 64th minute in front of Chelsea’s latest signing, Ukraine winger Mykhailo Mudryk, who was paraded on the field at halftime. It was a poignant day in west London as Chelsea paid tribute to former striker Gianluca Vialli, who died this month at the age of 58, before the match with a host of the Italian’s former teammates returning to pay their respects.
