Schlupp backs Palace to move on


Jeffrey Schlupp insists Crystal Palace will be able to focus their efforts on Manchester United after a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United.

John Lundstram’s early second-half goal gave the Blades their first Premier League win in 12 years and left the Eagles with one point from two games this term.

It remains to be seen if the uncertainty over Wilfried Zaha’s future has unsettled the players but there will certainly be no let-up with a trip to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Palace were outmuscled at times at Bramall Lane but Schlupp is certain that his team-mates will be able to progress with confidence to the next considerable challenge.

“It was physical but we learn from these things and move on,” he said. “We want to put things right as soon as we can and that’s our next opportunity, so we are going to go there ready and try and cause them some problems and try and win the game of course.”

Punters looking to use a free bet might fancy Palace to shock United as they try to pull away from the relegation zone.
