Liverpool’s dream of going over Chelsea to top the EPL table was dashed this time as former Chelsea defender scored the winning goal to see West Ham defeat the Reds.
A week ago, Conor Gallagher’s registered a goal and an assist in Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win over Man City. Now, Kurt Zouma scores a decisive goal as West Ham beat Liverpool 3-2.
The French defender has left Chelsea on a permanent basis but for most fans, he’s still a part of the family.
Numerous Chelsea faithful have kept their congratulatory messages rolling ever since after the game.
ertapenem: “I understand why he was sold, but he was a solid defender, good/great in the air, and such an easy fellow to root for. So happy for him.”
wright789987: “Zouma the great stood out for the Blues once again. Once a Blue, always a Blue.”
mrlambo46: “Don’t know if those reports were correct but we practically pushed Zouma down their throat, you are welcome, West Ham.”
RSLDN8: “This might be the first time I’ve ever celebrated out loud a West Ham goal.. may it be the last.”
@Nxrwin: “Sold Agent Zouma to West Ham and he scores the winning goal against Liverpool. Thomas Tuchel masterclass.”
@NenyeChelsea: “It was Gallagher against City last weekend, Zouma today. You are never free from Chelsea.”
@iam_presider: “Abramovich you sneaky mad genius, sold Zouma to West ham to burn Liverpool’s hopes of getting near Chelsea cos he knew Chelsea would drop points against Burnley. Has my respect.”
victory, Tribuna.com: “It’s not just West Ham that did us a favour, Kurt Zouna done us a real favour scoring a header.”
Tomo, Talk Chelsea: “One of those deals which suited every single party down to the ground.”
RlcKovaHavertz, We Ain’t Got No History: “This is our year. Thanks, agent Zouma!”
