Yannick Bolasie Has Made An Outrageous Claim About Wilfried Zaha
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has the same level of ability as Barcelona superstar Neymar, according to his team-mate Yannick Bolasie.
Zaha is currently enjoying probably his most productive Premier League season to date, with seven goals and as many assists to date, with his latest stand-out performance coming in Monday's 3-0 win over Arsenal - where Zaha set-up two of the goals.
At 24, he's not a kid anymore, and Bolasie insists that the once-inconsistent winger who failed at Manchester United has now blossomed into one of Europe's leading talents.

Speaking via the Evening Standard, Bolasie gushed: "He can go as far as he wants.
"I said the other day that he's got the same kind of ability as Neymar and people were raising their eyebrows.
"But now they're starting to see it and nobody is saying anything anymore! I'm just kind of laughing to myself and I'm like 'Well, I said that already'.
"It's whether people take notice or not. He's catching the eye now and doing well for himself. At the moment, he's helping Palace a lot."
