Crystal Palace: Wilfried Zaha’s performance thrills supporters online

Crystal Palace fought back from 2-0 down to a secure a draw against Arsenal at The Emirates, and a tweet from the club asking fans to sum up the performance of one player has got some fans praising the “enigmatic” display from one of their key men.

Although Palace’s victory was shrouded in controversy, with the involvement of VAR and Granit Xhaka’s reaction to being substituted gaining headlines, the performance of Wilfried Zaha was central to the Eagles’ comeback and a number of the clubs fans were quick to praise the Ivorian’s performance.

Zaha had been booked for simulation by referee Martin Atkinson, but VAR intervened and overturned the decision before awarding Palace a penalty. Given the winger’s links to Arsenal in the summer window, this was a game the 26-year-old would surely have been particularly keen to perform in, and his contribution to his side’s comeback has drawn praise from some of the club’s fans. Here are some of the best reactions to Zaha’s display below.
