Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha is happy to have helped Crystal Palace bounce back to winning ways on Saturday.

The winger inspired Palace to a 2-1 win over Chelsea in a English Premier League (EPL) match at the Selhurst Park in London.

Zaha netted the winning goal on the stroke of half-time and Palace, who are placed 20th on the league standings, recorded their first win of the season.

The former Manchester United player believes that the victory over the defending league champions can be a turning point for Palace.

"It's a dream, managing to beat Chelsea at home," Zaha said on BBC.

"This is definitely the start of a fight back," the attacker, who was making his return from an injury, added.

"Now we've got more confidence we can start to climb up the table."

Palace will take on Newcastle United in ther next league match at the St. James Park on Saturday.
