Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha a doubt for Liverpool clash

The Cote d’Ivoire international did not take part in training this week and could miss Saturday’s encounter against Jurgen Klopp’s side

Wilfried Zaha remains a doubt for Crystal Palace’s Premier League game against Liverpool after Roy Hodgson disclosed that he was unable to train during the international break.

In his first start after recovering from a knee injury earlier this month, Zaha limped off in the 89th minute as the Eagles defeated Huddersfield Town 2-0.

The knocks suffered at the John Smith’s Stadium a fortnight ago forced the forward to withdraw from Cote d’Ivoire’s friendlies against Togo and Moldova.

And ahead of Saturday's encounter, Hodgson has called for more caution with the former Manchester United player.

"He has not really been doing any training with us to any great extent. Obviously we are nursing the knee problem that he has. He is one that we will have a look at,” Hodgson said in Thursday’s press conference.

"We hope that the knee will be OK but we have had to be very cautious with him after the Huddersfield game because he came back from injury a lot earlier than perhaps he should have done.”
