Crystal Palace boss Vieira: Zaha playing massive part off the ball

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira is delighted with the work off the ball from Wilfried Zaha.

Vieira is adamant that Zaha's hard work in defence is paying off after victory over Wolves.

"It's about him understanding that the game is about 11 players on the field that need to work together," said Vieira.

"He has a massive part to play when we don't have the ball.

"When he works like he did at Wolves he always manages to still create chances or score goals, because that will put him in the position where we can win the ball higher and express his talent.

"If he maintains this type of performance, it'll be great for us."
