Sharing a series of screenshots taken from his Instagram account, Zaha tweeted the extent of the online abuse he has received in the lead up to the match at Villa Park with the message ‘woke up to this today’.
The abuse, which appear to have come from Aston Villa fans, included one which was accompanied by an image of the American white supremacist hate group, the Ku Klux Klan.
The message read: ''You better not score tomorrow your black c*** or I’ll come to your house dressed as a ghost.''
Crystal Palace issued a statement in response to the racial abuse via their official twitter account: ''This is an absolute disgrace and should not be happening. We stand with you, Wilf, and anyone else who has to suffer such horrific abuse.''
The incident comes as English football continues to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd last month.
Since the tragic events in America, all Premier League matches have seen players take the knee before kick-off in solidarity and support of the black community.
