Crystal Palace ace Zaha unimpressed by James social media taunt: Clout's a hell of a drug

Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha was unimpressed by a Reece James social media post after defeat to Chelsea.

Former Eagles loanee Conor Gallagher hit the winner for Chelsea at Selhurst Park, after Odsonne Edouard had put the hosts in front, before Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang's first Blues goal had got them back into the game.

After the match, Chelsea defender James took to Twitter to express his delight in the victory and appeared to throw a cheeky dig in the direction of Palace's Wilfried Zaha.

The England defender posted a picture of him getting the better of Zaha during the game and alongside it an emoji of a padlock.

Zaha replied to the post via his Instagram stories.

Adding the message: "Clouts a hell of a drug lol But yall be safe."

However, the Eagles star later deleted the post from his account.
