The World's Reaction To Palace Beating Chelsea

1 April 2017


After the Eagles shocked Chelsea by ending their 13-match winning home record by coming from behind to beat the Blues 2-1, the players, fans and the footballing media took to Twitter to acknowledge the achievement.

Goals from Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke turned the game on its head, and a fine rear-guard display saw Sam Allardyce's side hold firm as they took another huge step towards Premier League safety.

See what the world had to say below:
