Crystal Palace have been great going forward this season but their defense has been terrible so far.
The Eagles have netted 28 goals in 17 league games, 4 more than Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. However, they have conceded 32 goals (only Swansea and Hull have conceded more) and that is the reason why Pardew’s men sit just one point above the relegation zone.
Summer signing Benteke has been in top form since joining from Liverpool but without doubt, Wilfried Zaha has been the best player for Palace this season and it is no surprise that he is linked with a move away from Selhurst Park.
According to reports (Football Whispers), Liverpool are set to make a sensational move to sign the 24-year-old playmaker in the winter transfer window.
The former Man United star is a versatile player who can play anywhere in the attack and can prove to be fruitful for the Merseysiders in the absence of Mane who will leave for the AFCON next month.
Zaha has featured in 16 league games this season and directly contributed in no fewer than 11 goals (3 goals and 8 assists).
Praising his performances this season, Alan Pardew has recently stated (CPFC):
“He’s in brilliant form”
As per the provided Football Whispers link, Liverpool are ready to splash big money in winter and are primed to move ahead of Tottenham in the race to sign Zaha.
