Chelsea fans sent wild as legend John Terry hails Kurt Zouma’s ‘perfect’ last-ditch tackle in Crystal Palace win


CHELSEA fans were in raptures over John Terry’s comment on Kurt Zouma’s tackle against Crystal Palace.

The French centre-back raced across the pitch to make a goal-saving slide challenge on Christian Benteke during the Blues’ 3-2 win at Selhurst Park last night.

Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham scored for the West Londoners as they eked past their London rivals for who Benteke and Wilfried Zaha bagged a goal each.

But some fan focus after the match was on Terry’s Instagram actions.

The Blues posted an action shot of Zouma’s tackle on their official Instagram account alongside a caption that read: “Absolute perfection! @KurtZouma #CRYCHE #CFC #Chelsea.”

And Terry replied: “What a tackle @KurtZouma.”

The reply received more than 10,000 likes as Blues fans eagerly showed their appreciation for the comment from the Aston Villa assistant manager.

One replied: “Reminiscing your Chelsea days Mr Legend.”

Another wrote: “Learnt from the legend himself.”

Before one fan said: “He did what JT would do.”

Zouma recently made headlines after it emerged Frank Lampard may dump the Frenchman if he brings in West Ham star Declan Rice to play at centre-back.

And Jose Mourinho also reportedly asked the Tottenham board to open talks with Chelsea over a transfer for the ex-Everton man.

Meanwhile Terry has been linked with a shock move to Bristol City to become their manager after Lee Johnson was axed by the Robins on Saturday.

Absolute perfection! 💪 @KurtZouma #CRYCHE #CFC #Chelsea
