Crystal Palace will play Watford in the playoff for the final Premier League promotion spot at Wembley Stadium on May 27 after winning 2-0 at Brighton in the second leg on Monday.

Having drawn 0-0 in the first leg, Palace went through after two second-half goals from Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha. The 20-year-old forward, who has made one appearance for the England national team, hit the target in the 69th and 88th minutes.

Zaha says ''I'm just glad, we are going to Wembley, no words can express how I feel. I have played at Palace for 10 years, so doing this for Palace is perfect, for when I leave.''

Palace secured its place in the top six on the final day of the season following a dismal run of form.
