CRYSTAL PALACE have backed star man Wilfried Zaha over his rough treatment moan — by complaining to the Premier League.
According to the Telegraph, the Eagles have made their feelings known to league chiefs about the nature of tackles going in against the Ivorian.
Zaha, 25, scored the winner in their 1-0 win at Huddersfield over the weekend but complained he would only get correct treatment if his leg was broken.
The former Manchester United winger was the victim of two cynical challenges from Terriers’ player Mathias Jorgensen, while Etienne Capoue gave him similar treatment against Watford.
He said on Match of the Day: “I feel like before anyone gets a red I’d have to get my leg broken or something. That’s why I lose my head.
“Why am I getting different treatment from other players?

“It makes you not want to go on a run because someone will come through the back of you, and it doesn’t allow you to express yourself.
“At the same time, I have to let my feet do the talking which I did today.”
Zaha is the second-most fouled player in the Premier League behind Eden Hazard and has been on the rough end of 11 violations this season.
His fine upturn in form under Roy Hodgson has been in evidence this term as well, with three goals in the first four games of the Prem campaign.
