Zaha: We Need To Be Clinical

28 October 2015

Wilfried Zaha was left lamenting Palace's missed opportunities after the 5-1 defeat to Manchester City at the Etihad stadium.

The 22-year-old put in a tireless performance for the Eagles, which was recognised by boss Alan Pardew, but the home side ran out clear victors, having proven themselves to be more clinical than Palace on the night.

Pardew's men had their chances, but failed to hurt City until Damien Delaney thumped home a header in the dying minutes with the Capital One Cup tie already lost. The result - and the nature of the defeat - left Zaha frustrated at full time.

"I think the whole team tried hard. You can't take that away from us," he said. "But we've just got to be clinical. We were playing against one of the top teams in the league. If you don't take your chances, they're going to beat you.

"It felt like every shot they had they scored. We need to take our chances and be clinical when we get into the box."
