Wilfried Zaha: No plan to leave Crystal Palace

Grant SmithMay 16, 2018

"I have no plans of leaving", said the Ivorian, who put Palace ahead in the 70th minute before Patrick van Aanholt added a second.

The player has said in the past that he is committed to playing at Crystal Palace but claimed he can not confirm his future at the club if the "top 6" teams start bidding for him.

It took an additional month until Palace recorded their first league win and scored their first league goal.

But next year poses very different futures for the two clubs after starkly contrasting campaigns.

Zaha's commitment is exactly what Hodgson wanted to hear as he set out his plans for Palace to build on this season's progress.

"My advice to everyone would be to be happy for the time being that we are in the Premier League, as we could so easy have not of have been", he said. The Eagles are unbeaten in their last five games, winning three games and picking up 11 points. And that remarkable run is even more impressive given that the Baggies have faced Premier League heavyweights Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham in that time.

"Mentally from the result on Tuesday night, it was hard for us to manage both games against strong opposition".

While his signing would surely make next season's Arsenal team much more prolific, many commentators are asking whether an attacking player is what the club needs after the signing of Aubameyang and Lacazette, many feel it would be more beneficial to provide a strong Center-Back or a Defensive midfielder instead. "It was easy to get the team fired up for this one as we were for the previous games, but once the first goal went in our confidence was shot".

West Brom will now close out their Premier League tenure at Selhurst Park against a Crystal Palace side managed by former Albion head coach Roy Hodgson.
