Wilfried Zaha proved to be the match winner as Crystal Palace came from behind to beat Wolves at Selhurst Park on Tuesday, after Ebere Eze had equalised for the Eagles. Micah Richards says he feels Wilfried Zaha is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League. The Crystal Palace forward netted his fifth goal of the season against Wolves on Tuesday night as the Eagles came from behind to win at Selhurst Park after Eberechi Eze had cancelled out Adama Traore’s opener for the visitors.
Speaking on BBC programme Match of the Day, the former Swansea City and Everton defender said he watched the Leicester City game and I was quite underwhelmed with [Wilfried] Zaha and Crystal Palace. He [Zaha] played out wide, but against Wolves you can see how he adjusted where he was positioned and he had far more touches in central areas, and added that he thinks when he is playing like this, it allows [Eberechi] Eze more freedom and between them, they can cause problems for any team.
Micah Richards agreed, describing Zaha as one of the most underrated players in the Premier League as he said people talk about his inconsistency, but that was years ago. Now, every time, Zaha is turning up. And he sad he thought Williams made a good point about being on the wing last game. He wants the ball, he is attracted to the ball and he attracts people to him and he makes space for others, like Eze, around him.
