Wilfried Zaha is undoubtedly a key man for Crystal Palace, having gone through their academy to become a talismanic figure at Selhurst Park.
However, he has not been at his best this season, and one fan account has made a tier list that placed the 27-year-old in the average category.

There was one fan who completely agreed with what they had set out, while there were some who took exceptions to one or two of the calls being made.
However, there was nobody picking up on the Ivory Coast international’s position, which is a pretty damning indictment of his displays this term.
Best one I’ve seen of these spot on

Scott Dann has not been average AT ALL

It can be suggested that he doesn’t deserve any better though, with the most obvious measure of this being that he has scored just three goals in 28 Premier League starts and one substitute appearance, while he has also provided three assists.
He may still be making 4.7 dribbles and being fouled 3.2 times per game, but the winger still needs to give a much better end product if he is going to truly stand out and fulfil his potential to help the club.
Even with Zaha having had his struggles in the final third, the Eagles have managed to get themselves within six points of fifth-placed Manchester United as things stand.
If he is able to get that prolificacy then Palace could find themselves doing even better.
