Crystal Palace boss Hodgson confident Zaha will find his best form

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is confident Wilfried Zaha will find his best form soon.

The 26-year-old winger was a target for both Arsenal and Everton during the summer and is reported to have handed in a late transfer request in the hope of pushing through a move.

After resuming domestic action following a late return from the Africa Cup of Nations, Zaha has so far failed to open his account for the new season or provide any assists.

Hodgson said: "Very few people in our teams have scored goals, we've only scored three so it is quite easy to remember who the goalscorers were.

"As for assists it is only three possible assists, so it is probably a little unkind to start saying 'you are not assisting enough or scoring enough.

"I would say that we expect a lot more from Wilf in terms of assists and goals and I think that we are going to get it."
