Zaha Scores Twice as Crystal Palace Ease to Victory Over Aston Villa | Watch Highlights

Crystal Palace forward, Wilfried Zaha underlined his value with two more goals as his team picked up a first Premier League win of the season by fighting back to beat Aston Villa 3-1 on Saturday.

As reported by The Score, the forward, who scored for Palace in a 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Monday, swiftly canceled out Ollie Watkins’ fifth-minute opener at Selhurst Park before converting on the rebound after his penalty in the 58th was saved by Emiliano Martinez.

Substitute Jean-Philippe Mateta grabbed the Eagles’ clinching goal with his first touch, with Zaha again involved.

Zaha has now scored in each of the Eagles’ last seven top-flight victories and was given a standing ovation when he was brought off late on.

Patrick Vieira’s team also had Jeffrey Schlupp’s goal disallowed for offside during a dominant performance.

Villa faded fast after the rapid start, though did hit the crossbar through Leon Bailey at 1-1, and manager Steven Gerrard will leave south London with plenty to ponder.

Villa has lost both of its away games so far, while winning at home to Everton.
