Premier league news Crystal Palace player ratings as Riedewald and Zaha decent, Milivojevic sees red Last spor news
MetiNews.Com - How football.london rated the Crystal Palace players in the Premier League clash against Wolves at Molineux on Friday night
Breaking News ! Vicente Guaita: Had little chance with either of the goals in the first half, but still had time to make a couple of decent stops. 6 Nathaniel Clyne: Struggled to cope with the duel-threat of Podence and Ait-Nouri in the first half. Better in the second as Palace went chasing. 6 Cheikhou Kouyate: Perhaps could've done more than his flick on from a cross that led to Ait-Nouri's opener. A mostly strong performance, though he did struggle against Jimenez on the counter. 6 Scott Dann: Struggled a little to deal with Neto cutting in between he and Van Aanholt in the first half. Took a painful-looking knock in the second half but carried on. 6 Patrick van Aanholt: Thrust into the starting line up, perhaps a week or two earlier than Hodgson would have hoped. Made a great overlapping run and cross for Batshuayi to score, but it was ruled out. Booked for hauling down Neto. Improved in the second half as Palace went chasing the game. Whipped a free-kick over. 6 Andros Townsend: Saw a shot blocked and a free-kick fly over. A slightly below par performance from the winger, and wa subbed as Palace went chasing a goal. 5 Jairo Riedewald: Grew into the game with some slick passing and turns in the second half. Always looking to try and advance Palace, though there were a few sloppy passes. 7 Luka Milivojevic: Showed some bright passing, particularly when looking forward to try and find teammates in attacking areas. Had a decent effort with a free-kick, but saw it fly over.
Every word Roy Hodgson said on Wolves, Tyrick Mitchell, Wilfried Zaha and Marcus Rashford
Andros Townsend and Jeff Schlupp's crucial work that allows Wilfried Zaha to flourish
Jeff Schlupp: Showed some good flashes in the first half, including link up with Zaha and Van Aanholt to produce the chance for Batshuayi's disallowed goal. Shifted into a more central role as Hodgson sought an answer for Wolves' first-half dominance, but back out wide for the second half. Not able to make a decisive impact, subbed. 5 Michy Batshuayi: If he had any luck at all at the moment, it would probably be bad. Three goals ruled out for offside in three weeks, this one a difficult finish on the stretch. Only really had a half-chance other than that, but couldn't get a shot off. 6 Wilfried Zaha: Looked threatening in the opening stages, with a shot that flew wide. Pushed wide onto the left as Palace changed shape in the first half to try and deal with Wolves' dominance. Showed some dazzling feet in the second half to open space for a cross. Booked for going head-to-head with Ait-Nouri, a little pointlessly. 7

Subs Eberechi Eze: Showed some nice feet to beat a man and turn, but in truth had little opportunity to make an impact. 6 Jordan Ayew: Was oddly deployed wide on the right and then in the centre of midfield when Milivojevic was sent off. Christian Benteke: Brought on but failed to make much of an impact.
