Wilfred Zaha's goal against Brighton in the play-off semi-final second leg. It was almost a fairy-tale goal with a place in the play-off final on the line and Palace looking to hold on to a slim lead.

Two or three minutes away from booking their place at Wembley, the ball was played into Zaha and with his back to goal and a defender tight up against him. It looked like there was no way of getting his shot off.

That was until he took an exquisite touch, escaping the defender and setting himself up perfectly to shoot. And shoot he did.

Rifling his final goal in a Palace kit high into the net in front of the travelling Palace fans was quite the parting gift. Aside from the fact that this goal secured a place in one of the biggest fixtures in English football, it was also against arch-rivals Brighton at the Amex!
