Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha wins the most dribbles of everyone this past weekend

The winger managed to complete one more dribble than Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho to come out on top.

After a disappointing couple of weeks for Crystal Palace, they returned to their best form to secure a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Key to that victory was the attacking trio of Yannick Bolasie, Bakary Sako and Wilfried Zaha, with the forwards creating numerous problems for the Reds backline throughout the game.

While the plaudits went the way of Bolasie once again as he scored his side’s first goal, and the opening goal of the game, it was Zaha who was busy beating every other attacking player in one particular area this weekend.

Wilfried Zaha MF C. Palace Liverpool vs C. Palace 9 90
Philippe Coutinho MF Liverpool Liverpool vs C. Palace 8 90
Mousa Dembélé MF Tottenham Arsenal vs Tottenham 5 90

That key area was in dribbling, with him enjoying a fine game against the Liverpool full backs, as he won more contests than any other player over the last weekend with nine successful dribbles.

It was only a narrow victory for the winger though, as Reds midfielder Philippe Coutinho was right behind him with eight successful dribbles, and Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele then trailing behind with a tally of five.

Another win for Zaha then, who Crystal Palace fans will be hoping can continue that kind of dangerous form as they seek to get back on track after some disappointing displays in recent weeks.
