Crystal Palace speedster Zaha hits back at critics

Share

All five goals came in the opening half at Selhurst Park, the first two of which were scored by Palace's Wilfried Zaha and James Tomkins.

Zaha has proven to be key to Palace's bid to remain in the top flight and he put the Eagles into an early lead when he tapped in at the back post after Luka Milivojevic's shot was parried into his path.

Roy Hodgson's team were in full control of the match, and a second goal arrived just before the quarter-hour mark when Tomkins forced the ball into the bottom corner from 10 yards after Brighton had initially made two blocks from goalbound efforts. The fireworks never quite materialised in a 0-0 league draw at the Amex Stadium last November and were certainly lacking when both sides fielded weakened teams for Brighton's 2-1 win in an FA Cup third-round tie in January, even if ex-Palace player Glenn Murray did raise questions over why VAR was not used on its debut as he got the hosts' late victor.

And in fifth was " Blockers ", a raunchy comedy from Universal starring John Cena and Leslie Mann, which netted US$10.3 million. The most recent examples of the scream queens are perhaps in the new movie Truth Or Dare - which is released today.

Zaha restored the two-goal advantage with a bullet header from Milivojevic's ideal cross and, in a frenetic opening 45 minutes, Jose Izquierdo struck with a fine finish for the visitors.

Huddersfield is a point above Palace after Tom Ince's stoppage-time goal sealed a 1-0 victory over Watford. The Seagulls are in 13th place in the table and are seven points clear of relegation.

Chelsea scored three goals in eight minutes to beat Southampton, while Burnley kept their European hopes alive with a 2-1 victory over Leicester at Turf Moor.

But with local bragging rights on the line, as well as precious points, Palace boss Hodgson knows the pressure that his players will be under after previously steering West Brom and Fulham to survival. A win could see them vault into 15th place, and a loss might have them fall into the relegation zone yet again.

The Clarets were soon two ahead as Kevin Long notched his first-ever league goal for the club, rising to convert Johann Berg Gudmundsson's deep corner.
