Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway was delighted with Wilfried Zaha in victory over Middlesbrough.

England coach Roy Hodgson was in the crowd to run the rule over Zaha, and the £12million Manchester United-bound winger was instrumental as Palace cruised to victory to boost their chances of a top-two finish in the npower Championship.

"In front of the England manager, I thought Wilf was excellent," Holloway said. "We have a few who make a difference. He is one of them.

"This was as good as he has played since I have been here.

"He is literally as good as any chef I have seen. And he has roasted their full-backs all day and they will be glad to see the back of him."
