Forwards

Left Wing: Callum Robinson

Callum Robinson is a thorn in the side of any opposition defence he faces. He doesn’t cling to the touchline like most wingers; instead, the 25-year-old has a tendency to drift towards the centre, losing his marker and finding space just outside of the box – and it’s here where he is so lethal.

His speed is another problem for defenders, as Chelsea found out the hard way: once he picks up the ball and heads for goal, centre-backs more often than not can’t keep up and can only pray that the goalkeeper prevents a goal. Robinson showcased his sharpshooting skills with two goals against the Blues, making him a player to watch for other Premier League sides.

Centre Forward: Wilfried Zaha

Wilfried Zaha’s inclusion in this combined eleven likely comes as no surprise, given he’s one of the best players in the Premier League right now. The Ivorian has scored five goals and provided two assists in eight games for the Eagles so far this season, and makes life hell for the opposing team through his trickery on the ball.

Right Wing: Eberechi Eze

Eberechi Eze was one of the players that Albion were very much interested in signing in the summer, with reports that the board had offered around £16m for the England U21 midfielder; but it was Palace who put forward the most and acquired the promising youngster.

Eze’s versatility as a forward means he can play on either flank, as well as an attacking midfielder; but he’s proven to be the most deadly from the wings, tending to cut inside with the ball and pick out a pass towards the centre or firing at goal himself. He has a goal and an assist to his name so far this season.
