Crystal Palace beat Chelsea
Can Chelsea still win the Premier League?
On October 14, of course they still can. But after their third Premier League defeat of the season, it’s feeling increasingly unlikely.
Prior to the international break, Man City won 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Most expected Antonio Conte’s side to rebound against Crystal Palace, but a brilliant performance from Wilfried Zaha steered the Eagles to their first win and goals of the season.
Chelsea lost on the opening day of the campaign 3-2 at home to Burnley.
Story of the game
Palace took the lead in the 11th minute. Yohan Cabaye made a nuisance of himself in the Chelsea box, while Cesar Azpilicueta turning the ball into his own net.
Chelsea levelled soon after as Tiemoue Bakayoko headed in his first Premier League goal.
Wilfried Zaha put Palace back in front just before the break with a goal his performance deserved.
Tiemoue Bakayoko’s major change
Prior to Saturday’s match, Tiemoue Bakayoko had spoken to the media.
The 23-year-old midfielder opened his account for his new side in the Champions League win over Qarabag, but he’d yet to score in the Premier League.
Before the Palace game, Bakayoko promised to make a major change to his look once he opened his league account. He told the Sun:
“As soon as I score a goal I will change the colour of my hair. Possibly to blue. I like changing the colour of my hair from time to time.
“I don’t go completely over the top, but sometimes I find it brings me good luck. Since the Man City game I put some white in my hair.”
So we expect Bakayoko will be heading to the barber on Sunday.
