Ghana forward Jordan Ayew registered an assist for Crystal Palace as they pipped Huddersfield 1-0 in the English Premier League at the Kirklees Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Palace nearly always lose, and seldom win, when Zaha is absent and they relied on another brilliant solo effort from the inspirational Ivorian, who was returning to the team after injury. Without them I wouldn't be able to do what I do.

"He's a top, top player, I believe he could play for one of the top four teams or even Barcelona or Real Madrid".

Palace have not won a Premier League game without Zaha since September 2016 and the Ivory Coast global was linked with a move away during the transfer window. "I don't think we had many shots but I managed to connect with it well and scored". I feel like before anyone gets a red card I'd have to get my leg broken. "That's why I lose my head", he said.

'The other players have no desire to accept that a game is a lost cause without him, but until they do win a game, I can't say it is nothing but a fact'.

Zaha, who was booked for a lunge on Florent Hadergjonaj, said he was not getting enough protection from referees. I just don't understand it and it's every week, every referee.

"It makes you not want to go on a run because someone will come through the back of you, and it doesn't allow you to express yourself".
