Terry’s own goal condemn Chelsea to shock 1-0 PL defeat at Crystal Palace

Johannesburg, Mar 30: Premier League leaders Chelsea have been condemned to a shock 1-0 defeat by relegation-threatened Crystal Palace away at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

However, the Stamford Bridge side remained on top of the table with 69 points, one ahead of Liverpool who can go top when they play Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, while Manchester City are three points off the lead with three matches in hand.

According to Sport24, Chelsea sank to their first defeat by Palace in 24 years when captain John Terry headed a Joel Ward cross into his own goal early in the second half, amid suggestions it touched Palace defender Joe Ledley’s hand on the way in.

Meanwhile, Manchester United ended a week of turmoil with a 4-1 victory over Aston Villa thanks to two goals by England striker Wayne Rooney, the report added. (ANI)
