Chelsea continue their mission for Champions League football following their win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
It was another nervy London derby for the Blues but Frank Lampard’s side were resilient enough to come away with the all-important three points. Chelsea have now leapfrogged Leicester into third place and sit on 60 points for the season so far.
Should Kurt Zouma be Chelsea's first choice centre-back?
Stamford Bridge legend John Terry has praised one man in particular for his performance against Crystal Palace. Kurt Zouma contributed a potentially match-winning tackle on Christian Benteke to stop the Belgian getting his shot off during injury time.
The official Chelsea Instagram account has posted a photo of Zouma in action and branded his tackle on the Eagles striker as “absolute perfection”. Terry has responded to the snap, praising the Frenchman for his work ethic by commenting “what a tackle”.
Chelsea now shift their attention to Sheffield United tomorrow evening as they look to further solidify their Champions League prospects for next season.
