'I have no plans on leaving' - Zaha

Wilfried Zaha Wilfried Zaha has been crucial for Crystal Palace surviving relegation from the Premier League

"Wilf knows exactly how we value him as a player and as a person because he's an important figure for us", Hodgson told Palace's website.

"I have no plans of leaving", said the Ivorian, who put Palace ahead in the 70th minute before Patrick van Aanholt added a second.

There are no lingering doubts about the player's quality now, however, and his blistering run in April saw him pick up his very first Premier League Player of the Month.

In what could be his final appearance for them - he is due to return to parent club Chelsea, although Palace hope to sign him permanently - Loftus-Cheek consistently demonstrated his desire to make the England squad for this summer's World Cup by largely dictating their tempo.

After a bad start to the season, Palace are in the middle of the table.

If not, who does? " At the moment, it is just to be sure we know how close we are and carry on ". Whoever he decides to go for, it's up to him and congratulations to the players who do go".

Hodgson still has a soft spot for West Brom, and he says it will be hard on Sunday for himself and former Baggies favourites and current Palace backroom staff Steven Reid and Dean Kiely. The Eagles are unbeaten in their last five games, winning three games and picking up 11 points.

James McArthur and Luka Milivojevic both went close with early efforts, as did Grzegorz Krychowiak for West Brom before, as has often been the case this season, Zaha was again influential and forced a fine save from Ben Foster.

The Baggies had kept their Premier League dream alive last weekend with a last gasp victor against Tottenham at the Hawthorns, and with Everton equalising in injury-time against Southampton, there was hope. Since my first day here, they have been fantastic with me and I've tried to give them back their support.

West Brom will be without midfielders James Morrison and Gareth Barry for Sunday's game due to injury, while Palace are missing Scott Dann and Bakary Sako. "I'm enjoying my football, you can see how much I'm enjoying it", he said after Palace's victory over West Brom.
