Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha scored the winner as Crystal Palace defeated Chelsea 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Ivory Coast international revealed after the game that it was a dream to win Chelsea at Selhurst Park.

“I’m so tired but it was all worth it for the win,” Zaha said.

“We had to win! You never know in football – we had a gameplan, worked hard and just took our chances

“The first goal was massive for our confidence – it was a massive boost for the team. My goal was at the right time too, because Chelsea were coming back. I’m buzzing to have scored it.

“Me and Andros Townsend aren’t strikers so we run all over the gaff, but the boss told us that if one had the ball the other needs to get himself into the box.

“It’s a dream, managing to beat Chelsea at home. This is the start of a fightback – now we’ve got more confidence we can start to climb up the table.”
