With four goals in 16 league appearances this campaign, the forward is delighted with Crystal Palace’s recent progress in the English top-flight standings after battling in the relegation zone in the early part of the season.

"Our squad has too much talent in it to be down in the relegation zone so it’s good that we are putting the performances together and moving in the right direction,” Zaha told club website.
