Crystal Palace are more than just a one man band, insists Javi Gracia ahead of Saturday’s game at Selhurst Park.

The Watford head coach is aware of the threat presented by the Eagles' prized asset, Wilfried Zaha, but says Palace also have more to be concerned about.

He said: “Never one team is only one player. Never.

“We try to do like we usually do with the rest of the teams, with a collective vision, and a collective plan.

“In this case, Zaha is a good player. He has a lot of qualities and a lot of skills but in my opinion they have very good players and always are more players than only one.

“We have to be ready to control Zaha. But we also have to control Townsend and to control all the players they have.”

Gracia knows from experience that Palace usually provide a tough test and he expects this weekend's clash to be exactly the same.

He said: "We know all the games are very demanding, in this case we have played against Palace last season and this season and all the games have been very equal.

"I don’t expect anything different in this case, I know it will be very demanding.

"We are ready to play and compete and try to get a good result."
