There is no doubts that Wilfried Zaha has the talent to make it big in the Premier League and scouts rave about how athletic Zaha is. The player has several flaws he still needs to work on, maturity and field vision are two of the obvious ones. Manchester United didn’t think he was anywhere ready to play for them yet, and decided to loan him out back to the club where he first made his mark, Crystal Palace. Zaha has played with them since 2010.
Zaha returned to Crystal Palace on loan and made his re-debut with the club in the 70th minute as a sub for Dwight Gayle. Newcastle down 1-2 at the time of Zaha’s arrival, but scored two quick goals to take a 3-2 lead. With the win just seconds away, Zaha turned a play out of nothing, on his 4th shot of the match, and tied the match in heroic fashion.

There is no question there is things Zaha needs to work on still before trying another attempt with Manchester United, but playing time is vital for him. He’s in a place where he will get playing time and can have the space to succeed. In the 20 minutes Zaha played, he produced 4 shots, 3 of which on target.
