"He's the only one..." - Zaha reserves special praise for Man Utd star after Crystal Palace draw

"He's the only one..." - Zaha reserves special praise for Man Utd star after Crystal Palace draw

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha was quick to praise Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka following their 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

The points were shared in south London on Wednesday night after Bruno Fernandes' first half strike was cancelled out by a stunning Michael Olise free-kick in stoppage time.

The match also saw Brazilian midfielder Casemiro pick up a one-match suspension for a late challenge on Zaha, ruling him out of the Red Devils clash with Arsenal on Sunday.

Late in the game, Crystal Palace's top scorer this season, Zaha, was played through on goal but an excellent recovery challenge from Wan-Bissaka kept the scores level.

Zaha praises Wan-Bissaka

Speaking after the game, Zaha spoke highly of former teammate Wan-Bissaka, praising the 25-year-old's last ditch tackle.

"We nearly won it at the end," the Ivory Coast international told Sky Sports.

"Any other player [and I'm in]. As I was running through I had a little look back and thought 'oh my god, it's Aaron'.

"He's the only one that can do a scoop tackle. It was a great tackle, I can't say anything about it."

Wan-Bissaka's future is thought to be up in the air with United boss Erik ten Hag seeming to prefer Diogo Dalot down his right hand flank.

Netherlands international Denzel Dumfries has also been linked with a move to the club, pushing the Englishman further down the pecking order.
