Wilfried Zaha has been slammed by fans after storming off down the tunnel immediately after Crystal Palaces defeat to Bournemouth on Monday evening.

Bournemouth took an early lead in the fifth minute through David Brooks excellent finish but Palace were level before half-time through Patrick van Aanholt.

But Mamadou Sakho conceded a penalty late on which Junior Stanislas converted to secure three points for Eddie Howes side.

For Zaha, it was a frustrating night for Palaces star man as he was often marked by two Bournemouth players, although he did provide the assist for Van Aanholts equaliser in the first half.

But immediately after the full-time whistle, Zaha chose not to acknowledge Palaces away supporters and gave Howe a quick handshake before heading to Palaces dressing room.

Fans were quick to spot Zahas decision to snub Palaces travelling support and hit out at the 25-year-old.
