Roy Hodgson provides fitness update on Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace will miss the services of Wilfried Zaha when they take on Brighton on Monday, head coach Roy Hodgson confirms. 

Zaha is yet to return after picking up a thigh injury that saw him miss clashes against Leeds United and Burnley. During a press conference, Hodgson revealed the Ivorian is still on the sidelines but refused to set a possible comeback for the club's top scorer. 

"He’s still suffering from the injury, no question about that," he said. 

"Doctors and physios are very anxious not to put dates on, but he’s working very hard to get back as soon as he can. He has good powers of recovery so I’m hoping the prognosis will be quite different to the recovery."

The 28-year-old has netted nine goals while providing two assists in the Premier League this season.
