share on:

Wilfried Zaha has praised the impact of Christian Benteke since joining Crystal Palace, saying he makes his life easier.

Three straight Premier League losses has Palace sitting 13th on the table, ahead of an away game against Burnley.

The former Liverpool striker joined the eagles for a £27 million fee and has three goals, while Zaha has a league goal and three assists.

Zaha, 23, said the Belgian’s heading ability had made it much easier for him.

“Benteke is one of the best headers of the ball so I can just dink it in and I know he will get on to it most of the time,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s made my job much easier because I know if I cross it then he will head it in. He is an easy player to play with.

“He will get it, set it off and then get into the box, so I know I just have to get it out of my feet and get it in there and he will get his head on it.”
