Wilfried Zaha is playing his last game for Crystal Palace in today's npower Championship play-off final against Watford at Wembley.

The winger, whose two goals sank Brighton in the semi-final, had been carrying an ankle knock but started against the Hornets on his final appearance before joining Manchester United.

Palace were unchanged from the side which won at Brighton, while Watford boss Gianfranco Zola recalled midfielders Daniel Pudil and Jonathan Hogg from the team which beat Leicester in their semi.

Jose Mourinho was in London today for the npower Championship play-off final, adding to speculation the Real Madrid head coach's return to Chelsea is imminent.

The 50-year-old Portuguese will leave Madrid at the end of this week, following Real's final match of the Spanish season against Osasuna at the Bernabeu on Saturday.

Mourinho has long been linked to a return to Stamford Bridge - where he was Blues boss from June 2004 to September 2007, winning two Premier League titles and both domestic cup competitions - and watched Crystal Palace versus Watford at Wembley this afternoon.

Watford forward Nathaniel Chalobah is on loan from Chelsea, who are seeking a new manager after Rafael Benitez's interim appointment ended.
