  • Zaha was injured during Palace’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle over a week ago
  • Scan have revealed the severity of the 30-year-old’s 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.

Zaha will now miss Palace’s upcoming clashes with Man United, Brentford, Brighton, and Liverpool

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.
