That's the way zaha-aha we like it!

This past weekend saw the return of Championship football and also Crystal Palace's first win of the season under new boss George Burley.

In a game of two halves, Palace's three first half goals proved to be enough as the Eagles held off a spirited Leicester come back.

The most pleasing thing about the afternoon happened after 19 minutes when the Eagles fans got a glimpse of the future, in the shape of a 17 year-old by the name of Wilfred Zaha.

Zaha lashed home from 12 yards to score his first senior goal in league football and earn rave reviews from his manager and fans alike.

It may be a little too early to compare the youngster to ex-Eagles forward Victor Moses, but I'm sure I wasn't the only one to spot slight similarities in their games.

Strength, explosive pace and the ability to find the net from all angles, made Moses one of the hottest properties in English football, which unfortunately meant he would move on to the big-time with Wigan Athletic.

These characteristics can also been seen in Zaha, and with Burley promising to give Zaha the chance to develop his game this season, then we could have another gem on our hands.
