Wilfried Zaha’s Crystal Palace teammate James McArthur says he would be scared to come up against the Ivory Coast attacker in a match.

McArthur has lavished praised on the Elephants winger after he scored two goals in Palace’s 3-2 win over bitter rivals Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, a result which gave their survival hopes a major boost.

"He popped up again for us, and another header against Brighton, so I am pleased for him," McArthur said.

"He's been playing really, really well. To get to get two goals was outstanding from him.

"He was the same before the game in the build up, he treats every game the same. His ability just shines through, and I felt for the Brighton defenders because when he's on his game he's one of the best in the league.

"What I would say is I would be scared to play against him every week. In my opinion there's not too many players in the league that you fear playing against.

"He's one of them for other teams. To have him in our team is a big asset."
