Wilfried Zaha claims he suffered racist abuse and threats to his family after he won a controversial penalty in Crystal Palace's 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

Palace forward Zaha was clipped by Granit Xhaka in the closing minutes of Sunday's Premier League clash, with Luka Milivojevic converting the spot-kick to end Arsenal's 11-match winning run.

Following the match, Arsenal defender Xhaka said he thought the incident had been a "clear penalty".

But Ivory Coast international Zaha once again found himself accused of diving by fans on the internet, following several previous high-profile claims that he was guilty of simulation.

Zaha took to social media to defend himself, but subsequently revealed in a post on Instagram on Tuesday that the abuse had escalated.

"For all the people taking it one step further and being racist and wishing death on my family I wish you and your families the best too x p.s my life is still very good despite your hate," Zaha wrote.
