Crystal Palace have been handed a boost ahead of this weekend’s game with Tottenham regarding Wilfried Zaha – and Spurs fans have been reacting on Twitter.
The 28-year-old has been missing five matches with a thigh strain but boss Roy Hodgson believes he will be able to feature against Spurs (Football London).
Zaha is clearly one of the main men when it comes to making Palace tick and he’s bagged nine goals during 2020/21.
The ex-Manchester United man has featured on either the left-wing or as a centre-forward this season and Hodgson will relish the prospect of having him back.
Tottenham will be hoping to continue their recent good form in this weekend’s clash with the Eagles.
They have won two on the spin against Burnley and Fulham, with Jose Mourinho dreaming of a top-four push once more.
Zaha is a big game player and he’ll relish the prospect of making his long-awaited return in a fierce London-derby.
If he turns up and hits the ground running he could cause the Spurs defence some big problems.
Tottenham fans have been alerted to this news and plenty are concerned that the £130,000-a-week ace can cause grief this weekend.
Here is what the Spurs faithful are saying about Zaha’s return.
Of course he is
