Crystal Palace 2 – 0 Wolves

19

Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher goals helped Crystal Palace overcome Wolves at Selhurst Park and stretch their unbeaten Premier League run to six matches.

Zaha’s angled second-half finish from James McArthur’s through-ball was initially disallowed for offside against the Ivorian, but the goal was awarded by the video assistant referee.

Gallagher doubled the Eagles’ lead with 12 minutes remaining, his goal-bound effort taking a heavy deflection off Wolves defender Conor Coady on its way past goalkeeper Jose Sa.

Referee Graham Scott had awarded Wolves a penalty 10 minutes after Zaha’s opener, but VAR ruled that Joel Ward’s foul on Rayan Ait-Nouri had taken place outside the area and overturned Scott’s original decision.

Patrick Vieira’s side deserved the three points on the balance of play, with Odsonne Edouard testing Sa on a number of occasions and Christian Benteke going close to opening the scoring prior to Zaha’s strike.

Wolves, who had won four consecutive league matches prior to their visit to south London, went closest through Raul Jimenez in the first half.

Palace’s third league victory of the season lifts them up to ninth in the table, one point behind eighth-placed Wolves.
