Wilfried Zaha showed Monday night exactly why he is such a sought after player.
In a match where Brighton had Crystal Palace locked away and Roy Hodgson’s men were playing second fiddle, it was Zaha’s cameo that swung the game away from the seagulls.
“With the way the game was going, he is the one you are looking to, he is the one who is capable of turning the game on its head and that is what he did,” Dann said.
“That is why he is so important to us and it changed the game. From then on we looked like we could maybe have gone on and nicked it in the end, which is strange to say because we didn’t play well at all.”
Despite Zaha’s heroics however, Dann remained worried about Palace defence despite former Chelsea captain Cahill’s presence.
Centre-back Dann added: “I think until a couple of weeks ago the squad looked strong, especially in certain areas.
“At the back with five centre-backs, but we only had one full-back on either side, so there are areas that we probably do need to strengthen.
“We’ve got away with certain things over the start of the season, being lucky that people have been available.
“At the same time we’re in a good position and there are probably places where the manager and chairman (Steve Parish) will look at and think we need to add.”
Coming back to Zaha, Chelsea will be in the transfer market in January.
The Blues have an exciting young team which can break down teams but at times, that individual spark is missing and it is the signing of Zaha which can add that extra weightage to our front line!
