The ex-Arsenal star has praised Zaha for his incredible form.

Wilfred Zaha can find his place in the Premier League Hall of Fame for his Crystal Palace performances, according to Patrick Vieira.

Premier League has recently inducted Vieira alongside another Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, into the Hall of Fame. Another entry was Didier Drogba, who became the second Chelsea star to receive Hall of Fame recognition after Frank Lampard.

Speaking after the ceremony, Vieira singled out Wilfred Zaha as a player who can achieve the same recognition in the future.

“I will have to mention Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace,” Vieira said (via Crystal Palace’s official website).

“Because he has the talent – I have to mention Wilfried because working with him every day I see his talent.

“He is around 28/29 and I hope what he’s doing will be recognised one day.”

Zaha has scored 11 goals in his 27 league appearances for Palace, standing eighth on the Premier League goalscoring charts.

The Eagles sit 14th on the league table, two points from Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa. Following back-to-back defeats against Newcastle and Leicester City, they will host Leeds United this week.
