Palace star Zaha facing four weeks on sidelines

Palace star Zaha facing four weeks on sidelines”

Palace initially played down fears he could face a spell on the sidelines, insisting the brace was only a precautionary measure.

An EFL Cup tie against Ipswich and league tussle with Swansea follows before the worldwide break, during which Ivory Coast face a World Cup qualifying double-header against Gabon.

According to the Daily Mail, Palace want another goalie to challenge current first choice Wayne Hennessey after the Wales worldwide let in three efforts against Huddersfield, giving De Boer the worst possible start to life in the Premier League.

Zaha posted an Instagram snap of his injured knee in a brace on Saturday night captioned: "God shall protect me" before later deleting it. His absence will come as a major blow to new Palace boss Frank de Boer, who was already light on attacking options.

Having registered seven goals and nine assists last season, the Ivory Coast global was voted the club's player of the year ahead of Christian Benteke.

But he hopes to dip into the transfer market this week for a new goalkeeper, with Roma's Lukas Skorupski and Udinese's Orestis Karnezis on his radar.

After his side conceded three goals at home to Huddersfield, Eagles manager Frank de Boer is eager to recruit another shot-stopper and has identified Poland global Skorupski as a potential signing.
