EAGLES star Wilfried Zaha has urged his teammates to be clinical after they further distanced themselves from the relegation zone.

Palace earned their first league victory since December 28 last night as a rampant performance saw them run out 4-1 winners in the Premier League fixture.

During the game, Patrick Vieira's side managed only seven shots with five being on target but their clinical finishing was the difference between the two sides.

Jean-Phillippe Mateta and Conor Gallagher netted the first two goals before Zaha put the cherry on top of the win with two good finishes in the last ten minutes of the match.

Watford had eight shots with only one target, from which Moussa Sissoko did score.

Zaha believes the key to the victory was the side's efficiency in front of the Hornets goal and it is a trait he wants the team to continue with going forward.

Zaha told the club’s official website: “We need to be clinical. We’re making chances and not scoring, I’m glad I can score for the team.

“I feel like it’s really deserved. Good performances week in, week out, and it’s the same thing after the game – we’re disappointed. So taking the three points and going home feels good.”

“I think the team we have allows me to do what I need to do up front.

“If I get the through-balls, the balls over the top, all I have to do is work on my final touch. That’s what I’m working on.”
