Crystal Palace goalkeeper warns Chelsea of Palace star

Chelsea are the favourites for the FA Cup semi-final clash against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

It’s a massive opportunity for Thomas Tuchel to bag another trophy, as the Blues lost out in the final last year.

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Jack Butland has warned Chelsea that Palace star Wilfried Zaha is on fire for this game.

Zaha has scored 12 goals already this season, and Butland has backed him to cause Chelsea problems.

“Absolutely, he will be up for it, like we all will be,” said Butland. “He is going to leave it all out there, which we all are.

“When Wilf does that, there are not many people in the world who can play like him or can stop him.

“I’m sure we will see the Wilf that we are seeing at the minute on Sunday. Wilf, along with the other incredible talents that we have got in the squad at the minute – we are a force to be reckoned with. It is not us playing Chelsea, they have got to play us as well.

“It will be a good occasion, and I am sure we are all going to bring it.”
