Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has been named PFA Championship Player of the Month for October.

The 20-year-old, whose brilliant form earned him his first England cap in last week’s friendly against Sweden, was influential for Palace as they continued their unbeaten run throughout October.

His personal highlights were his back-to-back braces in victories against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley, but he has proved a menace against every defence he has faced.

Zaha has been valued at £20million by his club amid interest from top Premier League sides such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool, and he has been instrumental in Palace’s ascent to the top of the Championship.
