Crystal Palace ace Zaha: Why Man City and Arsenal my favourite grounds

Crystal Palace ace Wilfried Zaha admits he enjoys playing at Manchester City and Arsenal.

Zaha says their new stadiums suit his game.

He said in a club Q&A: "I do enjoy Manchester City's stadium and Arsenal's stadium – big pitches. Because when we play we counter teams most of the time, and when there's space it's a joy for us wingers."

Asked about his hardest left-back and right-back faced, he added: "Wayne Bridge because he was smart with what he did – not being the fastest but being there at the right time, reading the game well.

"Probably Antonio Valencia (right-back), because he is strong, fast and I had to think outside the box to get past him."
