Posted by

Crystal Palace striker Wilfried Zaha had to be held back by team-mate Andros Townsend after the Palace striker tried to square up to Arsenal defender David Luiz after the Brazilian clattered him from behind.

The incident happened in the 66th minute of Arsenal and Crystal Palace’s Premier League game when Brazilian defender David Luiz put in an industrial tackle on the Ivory Coast international.

Zaha then held his face after it looked like Luiz had a follow up niggle only for the Palace forward to jump up and try to square up to the 33-year-old veteran.

Andros Townsend jumped in to defuse the situation after Zaha was clearly upset about what had just happened.

Arsenal are still just one point ahead of Palace in the league sitting in 11th with the eagles two positions below them in 13th.
