Wilfried Zaha is set to make a return to action this weekend with the Crystal Palace winger having successfully recovered from a groin injury.

The 25-year-old missed the Eagles 2-0 defeat at home to Southampton due to injury and was also absent as the Ivory Coast beat Rwanda in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier this past weekend.

Zaha, though, has returned to training and according to the Evening Standard he will be fit to face Huddersfield Town in an English Premier League clash on Saturday.

The former Manchester United wide-man, who recently penned a new long-term deal at Selhurst Park, has scored two goals in three games this season.

Palace haven't won a Premier League game without Zaha in their squad since September 2016, underling his importance to the London club.

Following a 2-0 win over Fulham on the opening game of the season, Palace have suffered three league defeats on the trot and will be desperate for a positive result away to the Terriers.
