Hodgson Sets New Zaha Target

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has told Wilfried Zaha he wants another five goals after he shone in the 3-1 win at Burnley.

Zaha was the architect of the opener, an own goal by Phil Bardsley, and then scored the third after Michy Batshuayi had doubled Palace’s advantage just after the break.

It was a fifth goal in as many games for Zaha after 18 matches without one and he was a thorn in Burnley’s side throughout, drawing numerous fouls. Palace boss Hodgson said: “Wilf was good. He’s always good.

He’s in good form at the moment. He’s a dangerous player to have to mark if you’re a defender when he gets the ball, because he’s an extremely good dribbler and he’s got not only dribbling skills, he’s got strength to add to that. “At the moment he’s in good goal-scoring form.

He promised me some time ago that he would score at least five goals before the end of the season and I think he’s already got those five, so we’re going to up that, we’re going to double it, he’s got to get 10. “But he’s certainly doing what he needs to do and the same goes for Michy Batshuayi.”
