Crystal Palace fans cannot believe the ‘agenda’ going against Wilfried Zaha

Wilfried Zaha has come under extreme criticism for the way he won Crystal Palace a penalty deep into his side’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Crystal Palace had opened the scoring via the penalty spot during first-half stoppage-time when Shkodran Mustafi needlessly went to ground in his own six-yard box, seemingly unaware that Cheikhou Kouyate was approaching from behind.

The Gunners then formed what is becoming their standard second-half resurgence and drew level thanks to an equalising free-kick Granit Xhaka perfectly placed into the far corner of the net, with fingertips all that Wayne Hennessey could get on it.

Five minutes later and the visitors had their second, and subsequently took the lead, when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang poked the ball just over the line enough for goal line tech to rule in the Gunners’ favour.

Had VAR been in use at Selhurst Park, or the officials spotted the incident, the Gabonese striker’s goal would have been ruled out for a handball after Alexandre Lacazette helped the ball on with the use of his arm.

Justice, however, was evened out as the full-time whistle neared, as Zaha dazzled Xhaka, who was playing at left-back, before flicking the ball towards the byline and winning his side their second penalty of the game as the Arsenal midfielder turned into the attacker’s path.

The incident drew a lot of criticism, but there’s Eagles fans do not know why their star is being singled out.
