Messages from Crystal Palace fans have rolled into Wilfried Zaha after the winger posted some clips of a mini-match in training onto his Twitter feed.
The 26-year-old posted the video with the caption ‘On a [plate emoji]’, before tagging fellow teammate Christian Benteke.
In the video, Zaha can be seen scoring a couple of goals, as well as assisting a few for his teammates, including a couple for Benteke and one for youngster Nya Kirby.
The Ivory Coast international was linked away with the club pretty much for the entire window, however, Zaha was unable to get the move he craved as Palace saw him as too indispensable and no one could match their valuation – rumoured to be at above £80m (Metro).
Zaha, 26, was strongly rumoured to join Everton or Arsenal, yet a deal was never finalised, despite offers from both and an eventual transfer request, stated by The Guardian.
Throughout the video Benteke and Zaha seem to link incredibly well, with many interchanging passes and goal combinations between the two of them.
Unsurprisingly that caught the attention of Palace fans, with some being joyed to see the two looking so good together in training, but also a few others who are frustrated that they can’t see Benteke have the same impact in match situations. Other fans responded directly to Zaha – expressing their love for the star.

Am a big admirer of Benteke's work rate on match day. And I strongly suspect he's a genuinely nice guy.
But please no more training ground goals… some on match day would be really nice.
