I agree with GF on this one. If Zaha is deemed as a striker in a front two, then you cannot consider him for one of the wide midfield spots. It's well known that Roy likes to play 442 and we are chronically short of players to play in the wide positions. So far the solutions offered are Townsend RM, Schlupp LM. Mcarthur LM, Mcarthur RM and Townsend as a ST and finally Meyer as a LM. It's reflects very poorly on recruitment that they knew the way Roy wanted to play and to have just one recognised RM in the squad and no first team LM.

To relate this to the OP, the balance of the first XI will improve when Benteke returns to the team. We have looked more threatening with him in the side than with him out of it, but for me the priority would be midfielders who can effectively play wide in a 442.

Zaha should not be considered a striker though. He is a top quality winger and a fairly average striker. Absolutely wasted up front.

I do agree we're short of wide players, but we're definitely short of a goalscorer too.

LOL.

Because Benteke has been utter shit for 18 months and Wickham has been practically dead for well over 2 years.

We need a proper centre forward ASAP. What will annoy me more is that we will do the usual and buy one right at the end of the window, as if the 4 league games (3 of them winnable) don’t matter as much as games from February onwards

If Benteke comes back, fit, after Christmas, no doubt RH will do his usual trick of playing him in 's l o w l y'. He might get a 10 minute cameo by about end- March

I think every Palace fan can see how much we miss Benteke. Sure, he's far from great but his presence allows Zaha the freedom to play. He works hard for the team.

He's more likely at some striker rehab clinic I might just copyright that idea as at Palace I will never run out of clients.
