Crystal Palace 2 – Stoke 1
It was a massively successful weekend for Crystal Palace.
Palace may still be bottom of the Premier League, but the Eagles recorded their second win of the season against Stoke.
For the fourth home match in a row, Palace scored twice at Selhurst Park in the Premier League. The Eagles have never done that before.
Stoke took the lead through Xherdan Shaqiri’s low drive after 53 minutes.
But Palace hit back three minutes later when Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored at the back post.
The Eagles won the match at the death when record signing Mamadou Sakho was in the right pace to steer the ball home.
Wilfried Zaha & Xherdan Shaqiri
Immediately after the match, the TV cameras picked up on a conversation between Wilfried Zaha and Xherdan Shaqiri.
What did Zaha say to the Swiss international? Trying to read Shaqiri’s lips, it looks like the Stoke star said “No, are they?!”
But what was Shaqiri reacting too?
Palace fans on social media have been speculating about what Zaha said to provoke Shaqiri’s reaction.
See the tweets below.

I reckon Wilf said “The fans are like this every week”. #CPFC

Think Shaqiri was asking for his shirt… to which Wilfried replied "My humblest of apologies Xherdan, these shirts are reserved for fully grown men"
