Black Stars defender, Jeffrey Schlupp, has been voted Man of the Match in Crystal Palace's 1-1 draw at Tottenham in the final game of the season.

The versatile player, who returned to full fitness few weeks ago starred in the game against Tottenham, grabbing a second-half equalizer to secure a point for Palace.

Schlupp beat left-back Tyrick Mitchell and Scott Dann to win the award.

The Ghana international fired home from 12 yards in the 53rd minute after countryman Jordan Ayew's goal-bound shot took a deflection and fell in front of him.

The ex-Leicester City player drew his side level after Spurs had taken a 13th minute through inspirational skipper Harry Kane.

It was his third league goal of the season after finding the back of the next in wins at Burnely and Bournemouth-all in 2019.

Schlupp, 27, could manage only 18 league appearances after battling injuries this term.
