Wilfried Zaha insists he remains fully committed to Crystal Palace following a summer of relentless speculation over his future.

The Ivory Coat internationals performances last season helped the Eagles overcome the worst start in Premier League history to preserve their top flight status with room to spare.

Zaha was regularly linked with a move to Palaces London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea during the summer but remained in south east London and ensured Roy Hodgsons side got their campaign off to a winning start on Saturday, scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Asked about speculation surrounding him this summer, Zaha said: I have just had my head down and it was not something I was involved in.

I am with Palace and I dont have time to think about the speculation.

It was a difficult game but we stuck by our game plan, he added on the opening day win.

We knew we couldnt get impatient, and just had to stay in our shape and take our chances in possession.

We are just taking every game as it comes, the main thing is taking our chances because we have pace in our team and we can counter on sides.
