Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed that Wilfried Zaha had been nominated for the Premier League ‘Player of the Month’ award for his performances throughout the month of February.
The Ivory Coast international hit three goals in his three games last month, netting the equaliser against West Ham before going on to smash in a match-winning double against Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
This form, in addition to his goal against Southampton at the end of January, saw Zaha score in three consecutive games for the first time in his career, and also helped the Eagles move away from the drop zone.
Alongside the 26-year-old in the nominees are Manchester United duo Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk, Burnley forward Ashley Barnes and Newcastle youngster Sean Longstaff.
The news has come as a shock to some given the fact that Jeffrey Schlupp won the Eagles’ Player of the Month award, but let’s take a look at how the Palace fans reacted to the news on Twitter anyway…
As much as I’d love to see Wilf win this, Aguero has this in the bag for his hat-tricks against Arsenal & Chelsea!
