Wilfried Zaha was again in impressive form as Crystal Palace drew 2-2 with Leeds United in the Championship this weekend.

The winger gave Leeds a torrid time on the wings. Check out this fantastic dribble from Zaha – he won the ball back near his own corner flag before running the length of the pitch, turning two Leeds defenders inside out and firing in a great ball that nearly led to a goal for Crystal Palace.

On the day, Zaha was getting booed vociferously by the travelling Leeds fans, leading to him showing them the middle finger for which he has now apologised. At least he knows what to expect when playing Leeds in the future.

And what a future it could be. Zaha has been in fantastic form in recent games and is spearheading Crystal Palace’s promotion push with top scorer Glenn Murray, so it is going to be exciting to see if he can bring the same level of performance to the Premier League and Manchester United.

6 goals and 9 assists when double/treble marked for the entire season.

No end product though.

Just by being on the field Palace have had an extra man all season long allowing us to score a hatful of goals. I just love how much people hate. He is class and going to the top of the game and this is coming from someone who has seen every professional game that he has played live.

Can’t wait for him at United, this ^ this don’t know what they are on about. People used to say that about Ronaldo and look what happened to him, Fergie honed his raw talent into the one of the world’s best players. Not saying Zaha will be anywhere near Ron, but Fergie can make him a better player and that is a good prospect.

seems like he wastes alot of energy jiggling about and the end result is nothing.
I used to do all kind of tricks with the ball at school, and was crap on the pitch!
I think he’s a waste of money and shouldn’t play for England.

Never heard him get booed once, just that he was reminded by the Leeds fans about how much time he is going to spend warming the bench for his new club. For all his so called silky skills in 180 minutes against Leeds this season he has produced nothing. Dribble past as many players as you like if the end product is nothing what is the point.
