(Video) Chelsea’s Marcos Alonso pulled off one of the most beautiful looking elastico against Crystal Palace

Chelsea suffered an unexpected and shocking 1-2 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The league leaders suffered only their second home defeat of the season, but this time it was one that made tremors felt across the rest of the table as well.

Chelsea played their regular dominating style and secured an early 5th minute opener courtesy of Cesc Fabregas, but the Blues soon lost the plot just four minutes later due to two quick Palace goals by Wilfred Zaha and Christian Benteke.

Chelsea never gave up, though, and kept pushing with a massive 24 shots on target. Several players in the midfield contributed to these attacking forays, but Marcos Alonso shined through to grab the limelight with one particular moment of brilliance.
