Report: Zaha will see knee specialist, expected to miss at least 4 weeks
Another footballer is reportedly set to enter Crystal Palace's treatment room.
According to the Guardian's Ed Aarons and Dominic Fifield, Wilfried Zaha is set to see a knee specialist. The winger suffered an injury as the Eagles played out a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United, and it's understood he sustained it during the first half but remained on the pitch until the game ended. He was reportedly sent for a scan on Monday and was referred for more treatment, meaning he's expected to miss at least four weeks.
A prolonged absence would mark Zaha's second of the season. He suffered a knee injury as Palace fell 3-0 to Huddersfield Town on the first matchday of the Premier League season and didn't return until October, tallying the winner as the Eagles beat Chelsea 2-1 at Selhurst Park. Until then, they had zero points in the top flight of English football.
