The Cote d’Ivoire footballer’s international’s goal in their loss to the Hornets saw him to rose to the club’s top scorer
Wilfried Zaha’s strike against Watford on Sunday has made him Crystal Palace’s all-time highest goalscorer in the English Premier League.
The Cote d’Ivoire international scored Palace’s consolatory in their 2-1 loss to Watford and now has 24 English top-flight goals for the club, matching Chris Armstrong’s tally.
In the Eagles’ season-opening win over Fulham, the 25-year-old got one of the two winning goals to equal Armstrong’s tally of twenty three strikes, set twenty three years ago .
Last season, Zaha scored nine goals in all competitions – his highest tally since he rejoined the club from Manchester United. This season, however, he has found the back of the net twice.
