Crystal Palace legend Wright: Zaha and Benteke good for eachother

Crystal Palace legend Ian Wright hailed Wilfried Zaha's performance for victory at Middlesbrough.

Zaha set up Christian Benteke for the opener at Middlesbrough, before going on to net the winner in the second half

Speaking on the BBC's Match of the Day, Ian Wright said: "Middlesbrough gave him time and space and you can't do that.

"When you have a target like [Christian] Benteke, he found him brilliantly and it was a great assist.

"This is what he is capable of and he can walk past players. He has pace, power and skill but he needs to put this together on a more regular basis."
