Zaha could make the difference for Crystal Palace

Huddersfield vulnerable to counter-attacks

Wilf Zaha could return for Palace
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

Crystal Palace look a different team when Wilfried Zaha is in their side and they will have been delighted by the 25-year-old's early recovery from injury.

Zaha has become a serial matchwinner for the Eagles and the Londoners could be more solid at the back with James Tomkins in contention again.

Huddersfield performed well in a 1-1 draw at injury-hit Everton but they will be under pressure to play more on the front foot at home, leaving them vulnerable to counter-attacks.
