Defensive concerns for Fulham ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Defensive concerns for Fulham ahead of Crystal Palace clash

Zaha's future at Selhurst Park came under scrutiny when several Premier League rivals showed interest during the summer transfer window but talks with the club about improving the contract that now takes him until 2022 continue.

"I would have been equally confident had Vicente played but Wayne Henessesy played well last season and there was no reason for him to surrender his shirt".

Ghanaian midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp scored as Crystal Palace opened their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 victory against newly-promoted Fulham in a lively match at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Subdued Palace had only Christian Benteke's header kept out by Fabri to show for their efforts in the opening 30 minutes, but Schlupp's goal swung the game after he gave the keeper no chance with a fierce shot on the turn.

"We are still speaking about (a potential new contract), still negotiating, whatever".

"Everyone talks about "no end product, no end product". This is part of the statistics and we do some interesting things during the game too".

Hodgson selected him to start the Premier League season ahead of the long-serving Joel Ward, and he said of his young full-back's continued progress: "He's very receptive to information".

'We knew we couldn't get impatient, and just had to stay in our shape and take our chances in possession.

It was a pattern that grew in emphasis in the second half, despite Fulham having a big penalty claim turned down when Andre Schurrle went down under a Mamadou Sakho challenge in the box.

But the Ivory Coast forward finally did seal the win with 11 minutes to play when coolly finishing under the Spanish goalkeeper after latching on to Aaron Wan-Bissaka's through ball. "Bryan did a great job for us and will be a great addition to the team". "The players that have come in can only add to that and make the team stronger".

Their attractive, expansive football was ultimately exposed by a more patient and experienced team, but Jokanovic said: "If you ask me will I park the bus in my box and try for 0-0, I don't have this quality in my team".
