Wilfried Zaha is hot property again. With Crystal Palace languishing in a relegation fight, the young Ivory Coast winger is again being linked with a summer move to Tottenham. While his wish to move to Spurs in the summer was rejected, the scenario this time round could be quite different given the predicament Palace find themselves in.
Zaha will be reminded of the risk that comes with a move to a more ambitious club. The winger's 2013 transfer to Manchester United for £10 million is repeatedly...
Crystal Palace are in freefall, and the hope that the parachute of a new manager and new player additions would make a difference has now faded. In a laborious match for all who watched, Palace fell to a solitary Joe Allen goal, worsening their plight in the process.
Sam Allardyce said that the players didn't play too badly. If there is a positive to take, it's that the side didn't concede four goals before half-time like they did the previous week against Sunderland.
Liverpool still haven't won a league game in 2017. They host rivals Tottenham on Saturday evening with both sides still hoping for a slip-up from Chelsea in their pursuit of the title.
Elsewhere, there's a monster of a game at the Liberty, with Leicester facing Swansea as their relegation battle takes another twist. The champions are in danger of going down, just one point off the bottom three ahead of the weekend, and could even start the game in the relegation zone if results go against...
Crystal Palace lack a backbone. Not just the kind that gives teams a strong mentality but the spine upon which all successful sides are built. Sam Allardyce doesn't have a great deal of time to find it, but doing so might go some way to getting the club out of the mire it finds itself in.
Last Saturday's 4-0 defeat, a shuddering five-minute capitulation before half time at the hands of fellow relegation strugglers Sunderland, should be enough to prompt drastic change in Allardyce's thinking. This...

Collapses like Crystal Palace's against Sunderland one are typically reserved for England's cricket team, where wickets fall in quick succession as soon as the first goes. Palace fans watched on in utter disbelief as, instead of shutting up shop until half-time, the side went on to let in a further three goals before half-time in a game they lost 4-0.
Palace started brightly enough, but once the first goal went in, there were no outstanding positives to highlight. It was that dreary a performance.
