Crystal Palace

Zaha facing lengthy ban after FA charge

31st January 2019, 16:23

Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha could be banned for further matches after being charged with improper conduct by the FA.

Zaha was dismissed after 87 minutes of the 1-1 draw for two yellow cards in quick succession - the first for tangling with James Ward-Prowse and the second for apparently sarcastically clapping referee Andre Marriner.

The one-match ban for his dismissal for two bookable offences, which rules Zaha out of Saturday's Premier League clash with Fulham, could be increased following the charge.

The FA said in a statement: "Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha has been charged following the game against Southampton yesterday (January 30, 2019).

"It is alleged his behaviour following a second-half dismissal amounts to improper conduct. The player has until 6pm on February 5, 2019 to respond to the charge."
