Wilfried Zaha has opened up on the disgusting racial abuse he suffers during most Premier League matches, claiming he is regularly called 'a monkey or n*****'.

The Crystal Palace star's revelations come after a season in which racial abuse was prevalent in England's top-flight, at international level and in the EFL, with players being targeted in stadiums and on social media.

Zaha took to Twitter in April to share a message he received from a Newcastle fan calling him a 'diving monkey'. The former winger also revealed that he has received death threats online.
