Kurt Zouma was needed to be at his bone-crunching best as Chelsea eked out a win against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Frank Lampard’s men held on to the scoreline after Christian Benteke brought Palace back in the game with a 72nd-minute goal.

The Belgian was in with a chance on the 95th minute to make sure Palace received at least a point for their efforts in the game.

Kurt Zouma had other plans though as the center-back just ate the miles and took the ball away from Benteke with a glorious tackle.

Internet was rife with reactions with club legend John Terry commending the tackle.

Jody Morris seemed especially stunned as the assistant boss joked about being woken up at the thought of what Zouma did against Palace.
