The Cote d'Ivoire international scored a fantastic solo effort to, again, underline his importance to Roy Hodgson’s side

Wilfried Zaha made an instant impact on his return to action, scoring a glorious winner as Crystal Palace condemned Huddersfield Town to a 1-0 home loss in Saturday's English Premier League clash.

The former Manchester United player was forced to sit out Palace's last league outing after picking a groin injury which culminated in their shock defeat at the hands of Southampton at Selhurst Park.

The defeat meant the Eagles are yet to secure a point in all 10 games their talismanic forward was absent since the start of last term.

However, the winger was passed fit to return to the starting lineup against David Wagner's side, and he, again, showed just how important he is to Roy Hodgson's side.

In the 38th minute, Zaha scored a stunner to help his side grab their second win of the season.

The Cote d'Ivoire international received the ball few metres away from the halfway line on the left wing, teased and skillfully danced past two markers before cutting in to unleash a fierce curler.

It was the forward's third goal in four Premier League games this season as Palace now have six points from five matches.
