Jeffrey Schlupp earns point for Crystal Palace at Aston Villa

Must Read

Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp scored for Crystal Palace in their 1-1 draw against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.

The 29-year-old climbed off the bench to cancel out Ollie Watkins’ goal as Palace earned a point at Villa Park.

Schlupp had been on the pitch less than four minutes when he slotted in from Marc Guehi’s knock-down following a free-kick with nine minutes remaining.

Watkins, who had been a doubt for the game after sustaining an ankle injury against Liverpool in midweek, beat Guehi to Lucas Digne’s cross after 69 minutes with his first shot of the game.

Danny Ings twice went close inside the opening eight minutes for Villa, shooting wide following a darting run to the near post, and volleying over from Joachim Andersen’s attempted clearance.

Palace offered a positive response, but Wilfried Zaha’s stinging strike was parried by Emiliano Martinez and the Villa goalkeeper was also equal to Nathaniel Clyne’s low effort.

Despite a late flurry of chances, neither side could find a winner to improve their chances of securing a top-half finish.

Palace remain 11th, three points behind 10th-placed Brighton, with Villa still one place and one point behind the Eagles.

Schlupp has made 34 league appearances for Crystal Palace this season, scored four goals, and provided two assists in the process.
