Why Wilfried Zaha is missing for Crystal Palace’s FA Cup clash with Watford


Crystal Palace star man Wilfried Zaha will not feature in his side’s crucial FA Cup quarter-final matchup with Watford this afternoon.

The Eagles have travelled to Vicarage Road for the first of the weekend’s cup ties, set to kick-off at 12:15pm.

Hosts Watford booked their place in the final-8 of the tournament courtesy of a 1-0 win at Championship outfit QPR on the 14th of February.

Palace, meanwhile, put Doncaster to the sword by 2 goals to nil in their own FA Cup last-16 outing.

The capital outfit have since gone on to enjoy a largely-mixed run of form, having picked up a pair of wins and a pair of losses in their last 4 Premier League outings.

However, in a massive blow to the prospects of Roy Hodgson’s men, official confirmation of the club’s starting XI at Vicarage Road has seen Wilfried Zaha miss out:

Reports began to emerge last night that Ivorian international Zaha had picked up a calf injury in training, with it having since been confirmed that the problem has ruled the explosive wide-man out this afternoon:
