Chelsea 1-2 Crystal Palace Match Highlights

BBC Breaking News (Sports News): World most famous Chelsea FC's lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to seven points as Crystal Palace came from behind to earn a stunning 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge. The hosts took the lead in fine style in the 5th minute. Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas combined to create an easy chance for Fabregas to convert, as they looked on course for a 14th home win in a row. However, two goals in 91 seconds sensationally turned the match on its head as Wilfried Zaha brilliantly equalised in the ninth minute, before Christian Benteke cheekily chipped the ball over Thibaut Courtois to give Palace the lead.

The league leaders threw everything at Palace in search of an equaliser, but the Eagles were not to be denied a fourth win in a row, while Tottenham will have been given hope in their quest for a first Premier League crown by the Blues' slip-up. Antonio Conte brought Eden Hazard back into the starting XI, and the Belgium international didn't look like he was feeling any effects of the calf injury he'd been carrying as he created a chance Fabregas couldn't miss these views.

Fabregas started the move himself, picking out Hazard superbly on the left. Joel Ward afforded Hazard far too much space, which he exploited nipping to the byline before pulling it back for Fabregas to steer home from close range.
