Wilfried Zaha hopes he will continue to play Chelsea when Crystal Palace travel to Stamford Bridge Stadium to fight Maurizio Sarri's men on Sunday in the Premier League.

The Ivory Coast international has scored in two of his previous three blues encounters, helping the Eagles to victory on both occasions last year.

This season, the former Manchester United player scored three goals in nine league games and contributed an assist.

"It is a good feeling [scoring against Chelsea]because obviously wherever you go you are an outsider or whatever, so it's a nice feeling to show people that we're way better than they think we are, "Zaha said of the club website.

"But to score against an average team or a top team is the same for me. Scoring a goal is a great feeling, so it does not matter who I score against.

"But it's a great feeling to score against top teams and achieve goals, so hopefully I can get that feeling again on Sunday."

After their game against Chelsea Palace play in the next league games Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, and the striker has asked the team to stick to his plan to achieve positive results in the encounters.

"It's going to be a tough couple over the next few weeks, but I'm confident every week and I think we're good enough if we keep our schedule."

Crystal Palace is 14th in the league after collecting eight points from 10 games.
