Video: Schlupp’s super strike grabs three points for 10-man Palace


Ghana midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp scored his second league goal for Crystal Palace against AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday.

The Ghanaian versatile midfield enforcer climbed off the bench to secure all three points for Crystal Palace in a second game running in the English Premiership against Bournemouth.

The 26-year-old replaced Patrick Van Annholt 29 minutes into the game after Mamadou Sakho was shown the exit 10 minutes earlier.

The away team could not make their numerical advantage count as they failed to take full control of the game till the end of the first half.

The Eagles came into the game after the recess and looked more dangerous in front of goal.

Black Stars midfielder Schlupp received a pass from James McArthur just on the edge of the half way line and went all the way by himself to plant the ball into the net to put Palace 1-0 ahead with some 14 minutes left on the clock to full time.

Palace held onto the lead despite playing with a man down to secure a back-to-back wins in the Premier League with Schlupp scoring the winner in both matches.
