Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira says he was pleased when asked about the performance of Ghanaian International Jeffrey Schlupp against Leeds United.
Schlupp was back in action for Tuesday’s Premier League match after being left on the bench in the last game against Aston Villa.
The former Leicester City defender cum winger played 80 minutes and played well, but unfortunately, Crystal Palace suffered a 1-0 defeat as they conceded a 94th minute penalty.

It was the first time in many games that the midfielder had featured as a starter and Vieira assessed his performance at the post-match interview.
“I was pleased with his discipline and I was really pleased with the drive that he brings to the teams when he got the ball at his feet,” Vieira said.
“Obviously, he wants to play more like every other player in the squad. But he has to fight and he has to earn it like every other player.”
Schlupp after battling with injuries this season, has managed to make 11 appearances in all competitions and has scored one goal.
