Cole raved about Chelsea’s quickly bettering aspect, whereas Hargreaves believes the Blues are near changing into title challengers.
‘Frank [Lampard] is making all the right decisions,’ Hargreaves mentioned on BT Sport.
“I haven’t heard anyone say Chelsea are in the title race, but they are, aren’t they?”

‘They’re second – that’s unbelievable. They’ve conceded as many objectives as Newcastle.
‘Offensively, they’re outrageously good. If they only tighten up that defensive half, they’ll be there within the title race.’
Cole agreed with Hargreaves and the previous Blue singled out Willian for particular reward.
‘There in and amongst it now,’ Cole mentioned of Chelsea’s title possibilities.
‘It’s a tremendous efficiency. At half time we had been a bit nervous as a result of Palace defended so nicely within the first half.
‘But Chelsea caught to their weapons, moved Palace about and ultimately the opening got here.
‘Willian he stood up today, he’s been good all season and has obtained the captain’s armband as we speak. The kids had been good.
‘It’s an thrilling for Chelsea, onwards and upwards. Second within the desk and who would have thought that firstly of the season.
‘Frank won’t thank us for it he’d wish to be much more quiet about it.’
