Whenever a football fan thinks about Crystal Palace or the prospect of their side facing them, the man who instantly jumps to mind is Wilfried Zaha. The Ivorian winger-turned centre-forward is an incredible player and is up there as one of the best players in the Premier League outside the top six, and his performance yesterday just proved that.

Zaha was at his scintillating best yesterday, he tore the ragged Foxes to pieces with an incredible performance, scoring twice in a 4-1 win that would be the last game in Claude Puel’s Leicester City career. However, getting away from Leicester it was an incredible performance from Zaha as he scored his 6th and 7th Premier League goals of the season in the thrashing.
Under Roy Hodgson, Zaha has been sublime. Last season saw the striker step up for the Eagles with nine goals and five assists as they daringly defied the odds to stay up despite failing to score and losing their first seven Premier League games. This campaign, though, the Ivorian is set to better those stats as he has the same number of assists and just two goals left with 11 games left to play, the flamboyant attacker will be eyeing up double figures.

The Eagles love Zaha and would find themselves in a real tight spot if they were to ever lose him to a top club.
