Jeffrey Schlupp scores as Palace sink Norwich

Jeffrey Schlupp

Ghana winger Jeffrey Schlupp scored his second of the season to help Crystal Palace climb into the top half of the Premier League following a 3-0 victory over Norwich at Selhurst Park on Tuesday.

The visitors started brightly but found themselves a goal down after eight minutes when Kenny McLean fouled Will Hughes in the area and Edouard converted from the spot for his first goal since October.

Palace took charge from there with Hughes their driving force. He sprung forward and slipped in Mateta, who could only find the side-netting.

Mateta made it 2-0 with his first goal of the season seven minutes before half-time. Edouard pulled out to the left and played in a low cross that Mateta placed past Angus Gunn with superb precision.

Just seconds earlier, Jacob Sorensen squandered a superb chance for Norwich at the other end, and four minutes later, Schlupp added a third with a powerful finish from a tight angle.

Schlupp was not included in the Ghana squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
