Wilfried Zaha is set to be OUT for up to six weeks with a hamstring injury


Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha is facing up to six weeks out with a hamstring injury.

Zaha limped out of Palace’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle last week just after the hour mark.

And scans have revealed Zaha suffered a hamstring tear leaving him set for an extended spell on sidelines.

Zaha is currently not expected to return to action until early March.

He has, though, been a quick healer from injury and Palace will hope that proves to be the case once again to minimise the impact of the setback.

Having been unable to bring in reinforcements to strengthen their attack in the summer, Palace remain dependent on Zaha and have had little chance to rest him, using him out wide and also up front ahead of more natural options.

The 30 year-old has been a near ever-present during this campaign, starting all but one of their Premier League games and is their leading scorer so far this season.

Palace travel to Manchester United and Brentford during February and have home games against rivals Brighton and Liverpool.

They start March with a trip to Aston Villa before hosting title-chasing Manchester City.
