LONDON -- An unconvincing Chelsea beat relegation-threatened Crystal Palace 2-1 Saturday to provisionally move second in the Premier League, only two points behind leader Arsenal.

Fernando Torres scored in the 16th minute at Stamford Bridge before Joel Ward set up Marouane Chamakh to equalize for the visitors in the 29th.

Six minutes later, Ramires grabbed the winner with a right-footed shot from outside the area to the top left corner.
