Former Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma scored the winner for West Ham United in a 3-2 victory against Liverpool.
Chelsea fans on social media were ecstatic after Kurt Zouma helped maintain their three-point lead in the Premier League with a winning goal against Liverpool on Sunday.
The Blues would have remained top of the table regardless of the result. But thanks to Zouma, they have now gained a point on Liverpool, despite the disappointing 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday.
The France international scored his first goal for the Hammers in West Ham’s 3-2 dramatic victory over Liverpool on Sunday.
Chelsea fans are aware of his goalscoring capability, especially from set-pieces, having seen him score several important goals for the Blues in the last few seasons.
Here are what Chelsea fans on Twitter said about Zouma’s decisive goal against Liverpool.
