Wilfried Zaha breaks Crystal Palace's Premier League goalscoring record

Wilfried Zaha's effort against Watford on Sunday has made him Crystal Palace's all-time highest goalscorer in the English Premier League.

The Cote d’Ivoire international scored Palace's consolatory in their 2-1 loss to Watford and now has 24 English top-flight goals for the club, matching Chris Armstrong’s tally.

In the Eagles' season-opening win over Fulham, the 25-year-old got one of the two winning goals to equal Armstrong's tally of 23 strikes, set 23 years ago [1995].

Last season, Zaha scored nine times in all competitions – his highest tally since he rejoined the club from Manchester United. This season, however, he has found the back of the net twice.
