PICTURE: Wilfried Zaha’s case of mistaken identity

by Sam Peoples

Paddy Crerand might not be able to tell the difference between Danny Welbeck and Wilfried Zaha when they are on the pitch but you would think that national newspapers might know what Zaha looks like.

Evidently not.

In yesterday’s Daily Express, a London based paper with a national circulation over 500,000, they put an accompanying picture of Louis Saha with a piece about Crystal Palace trying to re-sign Zaha.

Despite playing his former club, Zaha didn’t manage to get his Premier League debut under David Moyes with the young Belgian Adnan Januzaj given his debut instead.

Fans have been eager to see Zaha given a chance after he played so well during United’s pre-season tour of Asia but Moyes has chosen not to use him just yet.

However, the Champions League and Capital One Cup begin this week so it shouldn’t be much longer before we get to see Zaha in action.
