Zaha heads off for rehab

The Ivory Coast international has been ruled out for up to six weeks but Palace are hopeful of having him back in action much earlier after sending him for a warm weather rehabilitation course.

Zaha sustained the injury during the 1-1 draw with Newcastle, although he still completed the match, and his absence is likely to prove a big blow for the Eagles.

Palace struggled massively when he picked up an injury at the start of the campaign and undoubtedly his return played a big part in their rise up the table.

The Eagles are currently placed 15th in the Premier League and remain at risk of being relegated as they prepare for their next outing at home to Tottenham on February 26.
