Crystal Palace boss Vieira hails 'work ethic' from 2-goal Zaha

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira was delighted with Wilfried Zaha after victory at Watford.

Zaha bagged a sensational pair of goals in the dying minutes to ensure Palace's victory.

Speaking after the game, Vieira commended the Ivorian's performance, saying: “People will talk about the two goals he scored and I think it was fantastic for the team, but what I loved about Wilfried today was his work ethic.

“The way he supported Tyrick [Mitchell], how he made it really difficult for Watford to build on their right-hand side. Out of possession it was I believe his best game since I've been here.

“I think he had a really complete game. From the start to the end he was really concentrated and focused on his defensive duty and that allowed him to score those goals. Scoring goals is something he's been doing for years and years, but today I really loved his performance out of possession."
