Bolasie: Crystal Palace ace Zaha up there with Neymar

Yannick Bolasie is full of praise for former Crystal Palace teammate Wilfried Zaha.

Now with Everton, Bolasie enjoyed several seasons alongside Zaha with the Eagles.

"When I said Wilfried had abilities that were reminiscent of Neymar's, people were like,'Nah, nah, nah'. But then they started to look, and then they said, 'Actually, he has'," said Bolasie.

"Every season he has come out and has proven that he has improved in different ways. He sets his teammates up to goal, he drops the ball faster than I've ever seen him do before.

"I see improvements throughout his game. He is not just a dribbler, as everyone thinks. He can see deliveries and passes."
