Crystal Palace correspondent Matt Woosnam hailed left-back Tyrick Mitchell during the 4-1 win over Watford on Wednesday night.
The Lowdown: Eagles’ first league win of 2022
The Eagles were winless in six Premier League fixtures in 2022 prior to the trip to Vicarage Road.
Patrick Vieira’s side finally claimed three points in the top flight against their former boss Roy Hodgson, with goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta, Conor Gallagher and two from Wilfried Zaha.
The victory takes Palace into 11th place after 26 games, and Woosnam was full of praise for Mitchell.
The Latest: Woosnam praise for Mitchell
The 22-year-old provided an assist for Gallagher to put Palace back into the lead shortly before the interval, and Woosnam took to Twitter to shower the full-back with praise following the goal, labelling Mitchell’s crossing as ‘so good’.
He gushed: “Mitchell’s crossing has been so good this evening. He’s having a good game going forward and when he gets the overlap to put it in Palace look dangerous.”
The Verdict: Impressive

The 22-year-old made four tackles, won 80% of his ground duels, provided an assist and wasn’t dribbled past all night.
It was an impressive display from the youngster, and hopefully Palace can now kick on after securing a long-awaited Premier League victory.
