Cesc Fabregas certainly looked to be in a buoyant mood after helping Chelsea kick off 2016 with a 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The west London side headed into the game at Selhurst Park looking to return to winning ways after being held to a goalless draw by Manchester United last week.

Fabregas was restored to the starting line-up against the Eagles and found Diego Costa, whose pass fed Oscar for Chelsea’s opener in the first half.

Willian then added a second, before Costa added one of his own to wrap up Chelsea’s biggest Premier League away win since January 2015.

The result lifted Guus Hiddink’s men up to 14th place in the Premier League table and 13 points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who were held to a 1-1 draw at Everton later on Sunday.
