Yes, Roy Hodgson’s previously clueless side had gone a record seven games without scoring at the start of the season.

But that all changed drastically at Selhurst Park.

Yohan Cabaye didn’t know much about it but his bundled effort deflected in off Cesar Azpilicueta from six yards out finally ended Palace’s horrible unwanted streak.

And, despite Tiemoue Bakayoko equalising for the Blues, they weren’t done there either.

The Eagles have missed Wilfried Zaha badly in recent weeks and he scored a beauty on his return after injury.

Zaha picked up Bakary Sako’s pass, cut inside from the left wing and fired into the far corner past Thibaut Courtois.
