Crystal Palace Player Ratings vs Huddersfield: Here’s how the Eagles fared
Crystal Palace picked up their second win of the season as Wilfried Zaha once again proved why he is important to this team. The Ivorian scored the only goal of the game to hand the Eagles a 1-0 win against Huddersfield Town.
Zaha was expected to miss the game due to an injury but he was deemed fit and put in an excellent shift once again. The pressure will start to mount on Huddersfield Town as David Wagner’s side sit one point above the relegation zone with 5 games played.
Crystal Palace Player Ratings
Wayne Hennessey (7/10)
Hennessey was superb in goal for the Eagles and made a number of vital saves to keep his clean sheet.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka (8/10)
One of the best players on the night, Wan-Bissaka didn’t put a foot wrong. He was superb defensively and was a threat going forward.
James Tomkins (8/10)
Tomkins proved why he is such a great asset to this Palace side. He was a leader at the back.
Mamadou Sakho (6/10)
Sakho endured a mediocre game but looked more comfortable with Tomkins alongside him.
Van Aanholt (7/10)
Aanholt’s raids down the left flank posed all sorts of problems for the Terriers. The Dutchman continues to stake his claim as an offensive full-back.
Cheikhou Kouyate (8/10)
There’s no doubt Kouyate has further secured this Palace midfield. His relentless running and tough-tackling have been magnificent.
Luka Milivojevic (7/10)
The Serbian was fruitful with his neat passing and distribution in the middle of the park. However, his set-pieces weren’t on point.
James McArthur (6/10)
McArthur endured a mediocre game and was largely unable to influence it. But he was crisp with his passing and kept things simple.
Andros Townsend (7/10)
Townsend whipped in a couple of balls but Ayew was unable to get on the end of it. His dribbling kept the defenders on their toes.
Jordan Ayew (8/10)
Ayew looked good in his first start for the club. He picked up the assist for Zaha’s goal and came close to finding the back of the net.
Wilfried Zaha (9/10)
Another sumptuous performance from Palace’s talisman. The Eagles just can’t seem to win without him in the side.
Jeffrey Schlupp (N/A)
Schlupp was brought on in the final few minutes of the game and barely had a touch of the ball.
