Arsenal gets a boost as Crystal Palace could be without their star man

Arsenal has been handed a boost ahead of their match against Crystal Palace next week, with the Eagles possibly playing without Wilfried Zaha.

The Ivorian has been one of the main men on Patrick Vieira’s team in this campaign and he would relish facing Arsenal in a game that gives him a chance to show what they missed out on when they didn’t sign him.

However, The Daily Mail says he is struggling with a grade two hamstring injury that ruled out of his country’s friendly match against England.

The injury is now being treated, and he is being monitored to see how he would respond to it.

However, he might be forced to miss the game against the Gunners next Monday and that will be a boost to the Gunners chances of earning all the points.

Palace has been one of the hardest clubs to beat in this campaign and they didn’t lose to Manchester City over two games in the Premier League this season.

They have some of the finest young players in the England national team and will be eager to leave an impression when they face Arsenal at Selhurst Park in this game.

  1. Palace won’t miss a beat if Zaha don’t play on match day, they’ve so much replacement ready to step in seamlessly.

    If he did turn up though he would certainly go down a few times easily in and around the box, with a few gamesmanship to keep the officials on there toes.

    Veiria have a system how they play and can mix it up nicely,
    Benteke fresh from scoring on International duties , he will be a physical presence

    1. Zaha is a decent player, I’m sure if we have Zaha as CF, we would do exploit,
      I really do not see him as one who pretends, same was said about Neymar yet this guys are the major players in their teams,

      It would be a relief to play palace without Zaha.

      1. The thing that makes Zaha stand out to me is his strength; its so difficult to affect his balance or crowd him out compared to most wingers. Combined with his skill and agility, it makes him really dangerous

  2. Zaha is no doubt an important player for CP, but they have other players who can very well take his place if he is not playing. Arsenal will have to be at their best to beat Palace.
