Zaha Buzzing With Victory

4 March 2017


Wilfried Zaha was "buzzing" with Palace's 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, hailing the solid performance and support from the stands.

The 24-year-old winger scored with a superb drilled effort after controlling a Yohan Cabaye pass on his chest in the Baggies' box - and he was quick to praised the no. 7's contribution to the opener.

"I'm buzzing, I'm buzzing for the whole team and for the fans, because after everything we've gone through recently they've still supported us day in, day out," he told Palace TV. "I'm buzzing in general and I'm buzzing I was able to score!

"We've been working on [movement] in training and obviously as a winger I've tried to work on my movement as well, to try to get on the ball. We all know Yo can find you anywhere and he managed to find me. I just tried to stay composed and get a good contact on the ball."

Andros Townsend added a second in the 84th minute, tackling West Brom's Jonathan Leko on the edge of the Palace area before running the length of the pitch and Zaha was impressed with his teammates efforts.

"He's literally a machine. I was watching him thinking I need to keep up with this guy in case he crosses it or something!" He said. "I was keeping up with him but he just kept on running and it was a great finish at the end of it.

"[Sakho's] a rock at the back. He's so solid and at the same time he's so composed, so any movement you do he'll pass it to you - it's not just a punt up front, 50/50 ball. He'll pass it to you if you make the movement, he'll make the angle. That's massive for us."
