Crystal Palace boss Hodgson says Zaha fit to face Tottenham

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson says Wilfried Zaha is fit to face Tottenham on Sunday.

The influential forward has been sidelined since being forced off with a hamstring problem in the second half of the 2-1 win over Newcastle at St James' Park on February 2.

Palace travel to face a resurgent Tottenham team that have notched consecutive League victories for the first time since November.

“He has come back quicker than perhaps the medical staff thought was possible," the Palace boss said about Zaha during Friday's pre-match press conference.

“He trained well this week so [there is ] no reason why I can't consider him for a place in the team."
