After scoring Crystal Palace's second goal in his victory in the London Derby over Fulham, Wilfried Zaha equalized the Eagles Premier League scoring record.

The winger now has 23 goals, as did former Palace striker Chris Armstrong, whose record had been 23 years.

Armstrong played for the club between 1992 and 1995, scoring 45 goals in total from 118 appearances.

Zaha went through the youth system in Selhurst Park before joining Manchester United.

After rejoining the Eagles in 2015, he has established himself as a key player and was closely linked to a move away during the summer.

Jeffrey Schlupp had scored his first goal for the club before Zaha sealed the victory at Craven Cottage to start the season with a victory.

This is in stark contrast to last season, when Palace did not score in its first seven games.
