It's not just goals, it's that we continue to be a very basic side who can't retain possession, so having a focal point up front to look to hold the ball up and help us get up the pitch is important. This is especially the case without Zaha, because at least when he's playing he can carry the ball up the pitch, whereas others can't.

You could see in the first half against Man Utd (they just sat back in the second) that with Sako not winning the ball, holding it up, occupying their defenders, etc. we were constantly penned back in our own half and barely able to create a single chance.
