Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey hails impact of Jeffery Schlupp

Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has hailed the impact of versatile Ghanaian Jeffrey Schlupp.

The Ghana international has been the final piece of jigsaw since he arrived, helping to turn around the Eagles this season.

Palace have won their last three games to move four points clear off the relegation radar with some solid defensive display by the former Leicester City man.

“We were unlucky with Patrick [van Aanholt], it was a nasty injury at West Brom but Jeffrey has come in and he’s done really well and didn’t even look like he hadn’t played many games. He’s really happy with himself.” said Hennessey

Schlupp joined Crystal Palace in the winter and has tightened the defence at a crucial stage of the season.
