Wilfried Zaha could almost have been excused for taking it easy during the second half of this season, knowing that he will be a Manchester United player when it ends. But Steve Parish, the Crystal Palace co-chairman, who sold Zaha to United in January for £15m and then borrowed him back, knew that it would not happen. And Palace reaped the rewards on Monday evening when the 20-year-old winger scored the two goals against Brighton to set up a play-off final against Watford at Wembley on May 27. "We said to anybody who was interested: 'We just won't sell him unless you lend him back,' Parish said. "I knew he would come back and be himself. I know what Wilfried's like. Wilfried can sit in there and tell himself he's not interested, but once he gets on a football pitch it is just what he does. He clicks into gear and everything is natural. The more people kick him and the more they get at him the better he gets. What is he? Just 20? He's had the odd game which wasn't so great but I've never seen his effort waver for one minute."
