Zaha scores wonder goal but laments Premier League referees after Huddersfield win

Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha once again underlined his importance to the Eagles today by scoring a wonderful individual goal that handed his side a much needed win away to Huddersfield.

However, the Ivory Coast international was fuming when interviewed after the game about what he perceives is a lack of protection from referees.

“I was happy we managed to win. That is the main thing.” Zaha told BBC’s MOTD.

“I had one thing in my mind when I went on my run. I don’t think we had many shots but I managed to connect with it well and scored.

“We are a team. Without them I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. If I manage to score for them, I do for the team.

“I feel like I’d have to get my leg broken for anyone to get a card. That’s why I lose my head. Why am I getting different trreatment from other players? It is every week. I don’t know what to say.

“I don’t know. I have tried to speak to the referees. there’s nothing I can do any more. It is hard. It doesn’t make you want to go on a run because someone will come through the back of you and it doesn’t allow you to express yourself. At the same time, I have to let my feet do the talking which I did today.”
