Ghanaian international Jeffrey Schlupp has expressed his joy after Crystal Palace recorded a shock 2-1 win over Manchester United on Saturday.

Jordan Ayew opened the scoring after latching on to a flick by Schlupp before coolly slotting the ball at the back of the net.

Daniel James’s late equaliser after Marcus Rashford’s penalty miss seemed set to give Manchester United a point but in added time Patrick van Aanholt scored for the Eagles to snatch all three points.

The 2-1 win was Crystal Place’s first triumph at Old Trafford in 15 years.

”First ever win against Man united in the @premierleague! What a great result! ????????“ an ecstatic Schlupp tweeted after the match.
