Boost to Liverpool: Crystal Palace star confirmed  out of action against the Reds



Liverpool have received some good news as Wilfried Zaha is reportedly missing the upcoming fixture with Crystal Palace.

According to Liverpool World, it appears Zaha is not expected to return after a recent hamstring problem, which should make life a little easier for Jurgen Klopp’s struggling side as they travel to Selhurst Park this weekend.

Zaha is a great talent and always a huge threat to Palace, so that’s one less worry for Liverpool when they face the Eagles on Saturday night.

Klopp’s men were beaten 5-2 at home by Real Madrid in the Champions League this week, so they’ll want to respond as soon as possible with a strong performance at Palace.

Wilfried Zaha remains Crystal Palace’s top man

Despite the emergence of Michael Olise at Selhurst Park and Conor Gallagher thriving on his loan spell, Zaha more or less retained his spot as the side’s most important player, outscoring every teammate.

The wide attacker looked to enjoy himself under Patrick Vieira’s management of the side and thrived in a different approach from the Eagles.

However, the Ivory Coast international is entering the final year of his contract and may not renew owing to his long-standing desire to play at a higher level.


Wilfried Zaha burst onto the scene aged just 17 and made his professional debut as a late substitute for Crystal Palace on 27 March 2010. By the start of the 2010–11 season, Zaha had become a permanent fixture in the first team, finishing the season with 44 appearances.

Then, in 2013, Manchester United struck. This is definitely Zaha’s pretend moment. What if we gave him time to integrate properly? What if his attitude was a little better? Was it all too, too fast for Zaha? Only he knows the answer, but what we do know is that this move has been a disaster. A falling out with David Moyes and a disappointing loan spell at Cardiff eventually saw Man United sell Zaha back to Crystal Palace. Since then he has progressed steadily, never reaching the heights his potential once suggested he could reach.
