The Eagles are just three points above the bottom three and the problems are beginning to mount for Roy Hodgson.

Palace had hoped they would not spend another season scrapping for survival but after Tuesday’s 3-1 defeat against 10-man Brighton the situation looks worrying.

With less than three weeks until Christmas, there is little festive cheer around Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace gear up for their annual fight to avoid relegation.

Palace rely so heavily on Zaha to shoulder the attacking burden but by playing him as a centre-forward they are losing one of the best wingers in the Premier League.

A section of Palace supporters feel Hodgson must take some of the blame for their form.

When Benteke returns, playing Zaha wide on the right could give Palace more of a threat.

Hodgson has warned there is no “magical solution” in January and Palace look set for another battle against the drop in the second half to the season.
