Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha hails his side's "good run" after they defeat Leicester City 3-0 to climb up to 14th in the Premier League table.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has said that his side have been left "buzzing" by their marked improvement in form of late.

The Eagles made the worst start to a top-flight season ever when they lost their first seven games without scoring a single goal, but have now gone undefeated in their last seven - a run capped by a 3-0 victory away at Leicester City this afternoon.

Zaha got himself on the scoresheet at the King Power, in between goals from Christian Benteke and Bakary Sako, as the Eagles moved up to a season-high 14th place in the Premier League table.

"The team is buzzing, we played so well today and we took our chances. I am happy for the squad," Zaha told Sky Sports News after the game.

"Teams just think because Christian Benteke just wins headers, we can actually both play. We got our chances, we took them.

"The second goal was the main thing, we carried on playing and when I got the chance, I was buzzing to score.

"I have always had confidence in the team and we are on a good run. It was only a matter of time before we put the performances together and climbed up the table."

Next up for Roy Hodgson's side is a trip to rock-bottom Swansea City next Saturday.
