Zaha scores as Palace beat Chelsea

Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League was cut to seven points after they suffered a shock home defeat by Crystal Palace and Tottenham beat Burnley.

Antonio Conte’s side had won their past 10 league games at Stamford Bridge and had not lost there in any competition since 16 September, but saw that run ended by a battling Eagles side.

The Blues struck first, when Cesc Fabregas turned home Eden Hazard’s cross after five minutes, but they were quickly behind.

Wilfried Zaha produced a fine solo finish to turn and fire home from the edge of the box and, 91 seconds later, set up Christian Benteke to put Palace ahead with a delicate dinked effort.

Chelsea piled on the pressure and had 24 shots at goal, their second-highest total in 29 league games this season.

But they could find no way past Eagles keeper Wayne Hennessey, who made 11 saves in total to ensure his side won a fourth successive game.

Hudson-Odoi agrees new contract for Chelsea

Chelsea striker Callum Hudson-Odoi has silenced speculation by signing a new five-year deal with Chelsea.

A deal understood to be worth more than £120,000 a week.

The contract ends months of speculation about the 18-year-old England winger’s future.

In January, Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request after Chelsea rejected a £35m bid from Bayern Munich.

But the teenager received assurances about his future from new manager Frank Lampard in the summer, and indicated then he was ready to commit his future.

He is set to return to the first team after recovering from an Achilles injury suffered in April.

Hudson -Odoi says, it has been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that, “I’ve been a Chelsea player since I was eight and this is the right club for me to be at.”

Ruthless Liverpool suffer defeat on Champion league opener

The holders Liverpool suffer its first defeat against Napoli after Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente struck late to earn Napoli a 2-0 win at home.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men won the corresponding fixture last term with Mertens’ spot-kick and Llorente’s injury-time goal enough to ensure history was repeated in the Group E clash at the Stadio San Paolo on Tuesday.

Andy Robertson was deemed to have tripped Jose Callejon in the box and, after VAR ratified the penalty decision, Mertens squeezed his penalty past Adrian in the 82nd minute.

Liverpool rode their luck in reaching the knockout rounds in 2018-19 and Jurgen Klopp’s men will again have to bounce back from an away loss to Napoli this year after Llorente’s first goal for the club sealed all three points.
