Timothy Fosu-Mensah: A teen living the Premier League dream

From his opening day last-ditch tackle on Huddersfield Town’s Steve Mounier that had supporters rubbing their eyes, to his displays of speed, timing and agility in the Eagles’ backline, Timothy Fosu-Mensah has quickly made an impression in SE25. Here, he speaks about making a name for himself in the Premier League, despite not yet reaching his twenties.

200 games up, Zaha states: “You’re going to get an even better Wilf in future!”

These are 10 words that will strike fear into Premier League defences and get Palace fans even more excited for 2016. On 200 occasions they've gasped and cheered at the local boy done good’s displays in red and blue, and on the occasion of his double century of Eagles games his promise that there’s even more to come can only raise excitement levels in SE25 for what the next 12 months may bring.
