The Wilfried Zaha stats Crystal Palace fans won't want to see

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Crystal Palace could be dragged back into the Premier League relegation battle following news that Wilfried Zaha may miss a reported eight weeks after suffering a knee injury against Newcastle United at the weekend, stats from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com reveal. 
Losing your star player is bad news for any side, however after analysing how Crystal Palace have fared in the Premier League with and without Wilfried Zaha this season, our stats show Eagles fans will be fearing the worst. 
In the six Premier League games that Zaha failed to feature in, Palace lost all six. They failed to score a single goal, while conceding a total of 14, an average of 2.3 per game. 

In contrast, in the 20 league matches the 25-year-old has appeared, his presence has had a huge impact on the club's performances. Palace have won 30 per cent of the Premier League games with Zaha in the side and have lost just 25 per cent. They have scored an average of 1.2 goals per game with him; conceding 1.3, almost half the amount than without him. 
If, as feared, ligament damage is confirmed; it will be a significant blow to Crystal Palace's hopes of Premier League survival.
