Crystal Palace: Zaha, Edouard and Mitchell statistically struggle in Wolves win

Crystal Palace: Zaha, Edouard and Mitchell statistically struggle in Wolves win -Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace continued their fine form with a 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday. 

The Eagles remained patient and broke the deadlock in the second half through Wilfried Zaha, and just as in last weekend’s clash against Manchester City, loanee Conor Gallagher sealed the win with a second goal late on.

Some Palace players did not have their best games at Selhurst Park even though Patrick Vieira’s side picked up another three points, as The Transfer Tavern looks into the three worst-rated outfield starters as per statistical specialists SofaScore

Where will Palace finish this season?

Wilfried Zaha – 6.8/10

Even though he opened the scoring, Zaha was actually Palace’s worst-rated starter. The Ivorian found the back of the net with his only shot on target and actually lost the ball 20 times. He also lost 13 out of his 22 duels and missed a big chance.

Zaha didn’t attempt a single cross all afternoon either, so it was a strange afternoon all in all for the 28-year-old.

Odsonne Edouard – 6.9/10

Another surprise inclusion, with Matt Woosnam labelling him as ‘outstanding‘. However, Edouard was actually one of Palace’s worst-rated performers according to SofaScore.

The French forward lost the ball on 15 occasions, lost six duels and missed a big chance. He also didn’t complete an accurate cross or make any defensive contributions.

Tyrick Mitchell – 7.1/10

Mitchell kept up his record of playing every Premier League minute under Patrick Vieira, but he struggled today according to the stats from SofaScore.

The left-back gave possession away 16 times, wasn’t successful with any of his crosses and lost four duels in total. He also failed to make a tackle all afternoon, which doesn’t augur brilliantly for a defender.
