Wilfried Zaha is ecstatic after inspiring his English Premier League (EPL) side Crystal Palace to victory on Saturday evening.

The 24-year-old winger fired the Eagles into the lead against West Bromwich Albion and they went on to register a 2-0 victory at The Hawthorns Stadium.

Zaha, who scored 10 minutes into the second-half with a powerful shot, explained that he has been trying to work on his movement at training.

"I'm buzzing, I'm buzzing for the whole team and for the fans, because after everything we've gone through recently they've still supported us day in, day out," Zaha told Palace TV.

"I'm buzzing in general and I'm buzzing I was able to score," the Ivory Coast international continued.

"We've been working on [movement] in training and obviously as a winger I've tried to work on my movement as well, to try to get on the ball.

Zaha praised French international Yohan Cabaye, who grabbed an assist when he set-up the Ivorian in the early stages of the second-half.

"We all know he can find you anywhere and he managed to find me. I just tried to stay composed and get a good contact on the ball," Zaha added.

The skilful winger, who has been heavily linked with Tottenham Hotspur, has now scored five goals from 24 league matches for Palace this season.
