Palace ace Zaha wasteful in Norwich draw

Wilfried Zaha was thoroughly wasteful as Crystal Palace drew 1-1 with Norwich City at Carrow Road on Wednesday.

On the chalkboard

Manager Roy Hodgson deployed the Ivory Coast international on the left flank but he was particularly disappointing against the Canaries.

Per WhoScored, he had 91 touches of the ball, more than any other player on the pitch.

However, while he was fouled three times, he was dispossessed on seven occasions. He also committed two fouls.

The 27-year-old completed four dribbles and was dribbled past twice, while all of his three shots were off target.

He did manage one key pass, providing the assist for Connor Wickham’s late equaliser, but this was still a poor performance from the former Manchester United man.

Did he really play for us?! No Palace fan has managed to name all of these obscure Eagles signings….

Who is this obscure former Palace player?


Zaha should move the ball more.

He routinely attempts to beat his man but he does have the ability to unlock the opposition defence, which he showed by finishing the match with an assist.

Thus, he should attempt to offload it more often; he was integral to Palace grabbing a point but one has to believe that he could well have cost his side all three.

Are Palace right to value Zaha at £80m?

Yeah, he's worth that!

Yeah, he's worth that!

No way!

No way!

His inability to get to the byline and affect the game prior to his assist was disappointingly familiar.

In his last five games, he has scored once and provided just one assist.

He is better than this and on Wednesday, he actually showed glimpses of it; it just didn’t last long enough.

Meanwhile, Palace could be set to splash the cash
