London: Wilfried Zaha rocked Chelsea as Crystal Palace breathed new life into the Premier League title race with a stunning 2-1 win over the leaders at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

In a frantic start, the Ivory Coast winger cancelled out Cesc Fabregas' opener and teed up Christian Benteke for the winner to end Chelsea's run of 13 successive home wins and enabled second-place Tottenham Hotspur to cut their lead to seven points with nine games remaining.

Antonio Conte's side had taken the lead through Cesc Fabregas's fifth-minute effort, but the visitors hit back first through the outstanding Zaha, four minutes later, and then Benteke.

The visitors then held on to claim a fourth successive win that strengthened their bid to avoid relegation.
