Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha anticipates M23 derby clash

The forward, who has failed to find the net in his last eight games, is prepared to make an impact at the American Express Community Stadium

Wilfried Zaha has announced his readiness for their  M23 derby clash with Brighton and Hove Albion in Tuesday’s Premier League game.

The Cote d'Ivoire international scored twice in their last meeting in April to help Palace claim victory at the Selhurst Park.

This season, the forward scored three goals in his opening four games but has failed to find the net in his last eight outings.

However, he has taken to the social media to express his preparedness for the derby clash as he aims to help Roy Hodgson’s men build on their victory over Burnley on Saturday and end his goal drought.

“Ready and waiting,” Zaha tweeted.

Zaha will be expected to make his 13th Premier League appearance this season in the encounter.

Crystal Palace are 14th in the standings after gathering 12 points from 14 games.
