Zaha crossed for Fraizer Campbell's 90th minute goal in the 2-1 defeat against Chelsea.

Zaha bamboozled Chelsea left back Felipe Luis before playing it to Fraizer Campbell for the consolation goal. Zaha entered the fray in the 68th minute as a replacement for Jason Puncheon in his first action since early September. Zaha arrived back at Palace in August and has scored once as well as this assist. He will continue to be used sporadically by manager Neil Warnock and is a risky option for fantasy bosses.

Zaha was an unused substitute for Sunday's 3-2 win against Everton.

Zaha was replaced by Yannick Bolasie in the starting XI and didn't make it off the bench at any point during Sunday's win. The winger scored on his debut back at Crystal Palace against Newcastle and started last time out against Burnley. He's unlikely to start against Leicester next Saturday given the performance of Bolasie against Everton yet still represents a fantasy threat as a sub.

Zaha is hoping to use this season with Crystal Palace to work his way back into the future plans of Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.

Zaha signed for United in 2013, but was sent on loan for the second half of last season to Cardiff. He is currently on a season-long loan with Crystal Palace, but is hoping to do well and earn a permanent spot in Manchester.

Zaha scored after coming on as a second half substitute in Saturday's 3-3 draw at Newcastle.

Zaha re-signed for his first club on Thursday and scored a last gasp equaliser in the 95th minute. Zaha replaced Dwight Gayle in the 70th minute and played as a striker until being moved out to the left wing late on when Glenn Murray replaced Yannick Bolasie. Zaha offers manager Neil Warnock a dangerous threat going forward and his low price tag provides good value for fantasy owners in the goal and assist columns.

Zaha signed a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent agreement at his first club Crystal Palace, confirmed the official club website.

Zaha found it hard to settle in at Manchester United, making just a handful of appearances since arriving in January 2013, while spending the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City. Zaha joins up with new manager Neil Warnock, and fantasy owners should look to him to rediscover the form of 2012/13 that pushed Sir Alex Ferguson to part with over 10 million for the winger.

Zaha is reportedly linked to a return to Crystal Palace, reports the Daily Mail. Zaha is not in Manchester United's plans this season and the club is willing to loan him out. Reports say an outlined deal has already been agreed upon between Manchester United and Crystal Palace.

Zaha was last with Crystal Palace during the 2012-13 season when he scored eight goals and assisted on another nine while helping the Eagles earn promotion to the Premier League. Last season he spent time with both Manchester United and Cardiff City and was unable to get much playing time. A move to Crystal Palace should provide him a chance to get on the field more often.

Newcastle were one of the clubs interested in brining Zaha in last season on loan before he was sent to Cardiff City.

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Zaha still has a part to play in the team's finish to the season, despite not playing the last two matches, according to Sky Sports.

Solskjaer said that Zaha was due to play last Saturday, but Fraizer Campbell was simply able to stay on the pitch longer than expected. Zaha joined on loan from Manchester United in order to gain more Premier League experience and playing time.
