VIDEO: Crystal Palace Mock Chelsea Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois With Peppa Pig Tweet

​It's hard to blame Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for Christian Benteke's strike on Saturday.

Benteke's finish, which gave the visitors a priceless three points, looped over the Belgian goalie after he had slipped while rushing out to close down his compatriot. The Crystal Palace striker made the goal look easy but in reality it was anything but, especially given the amount of pressure he would have been feeling.

Regardless, Benteke scored and now has bragging rights over his international teammate, and one fan managed to find similarities between the dink and a Peppa Pig video, dubbing the commentary of the former Liverpool's man's effort on top of the kids show.

The clip shows one of Peppa Pig's friends diving incredibly early before another chips them, and, to be fair, the resemblance between the two clips is slightly eerie.

​​Both are fine finishes, although Peppa Pig's buddy probably shows more skill in gently prodding their effort in.

Chelsea's loss coupled with Tottenham's win at Burnley means their lead at the top of the Premier League is now seven points, while Crystal Palace are now four points above 18th placed Hull with a game in hand.
