Crystal Palace Secures Thrilling 3-2 Victory Over Wolves as Edouard Shines

In a thrilling Premier League clash at Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace clinched their second victory of the season with a 3-2 win against a determined Wolves side.

The match witnessed a scintillating performance from Crystal Palace, highlighted by Odsonne Edouard’s double strike and Eberechi Eze’s exquisite finish. Despite Wolves’ efforts, which included an equalizer from substitute Hwang Hee-Chan and a late goal by Matheus Cunha, it was the Eagles who emerged victorious.

The first half of the game, featuring two teams that had collectively scored just four goals in previous matches, had moments of brilliance from Eze. The Englishman believed he deserved a penalty early on when he was brought down by Joao Gomes, but VAR official Stuart Attwell deemed the contact insufficient for a spot-kick.

Almost immediately, Wolves should have conceded a goal when Jose Sa’s errant pass was intercepted by Jefferson Lerma, who set up Jordan Ayew. However, Wolves’ captain, Max Kliman, made a crucial block on the goal line to deny Ayew.

Prior to half-time, the only noteworthy shot from Gary O’Neil’s side came from Pedro Neto, which was expertly tipped over by Palace goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. However, the second half of the game provided all the excitement, with all five goals coming in this period.

A fantastic run and cross from Tyrick Mitchell down the left-wing found Edouard, who cleverly slotted the ball past Sa in the 56th minute, giving Palace a well-deserved lead.

Wolves fought back in the 65th minute when Hee-Chan, just after coming off the bench, connected with Neto’s brilliant free-kick, looping the ball over Johnstone to level the score.

Yet, Palace continued to look dangerous, with Eze’s influence growing. In the 77th minute, Eze made a significant impact, showcasing his superb touch and finishing skills to put Palace ahead 2-1 after Jean-Philippe Mateta redirected Joel Ward’s pass into his path.

Six minutes later, Edouard sealed the victory for Palace with a clinical strike after Mateta’s back-heel deceived the Wolves’ defense, leaving Sa helpless.

Eze came close to adding a fourth goal for Palace with another dazzling run into the box, but Sa pulled off a remarkable save to his left, palming the ball wide of the post.

Wolves managed to pull one back in the sixth minute of added time when Neto’s cross found Cunha’s head in the box, but it wasn’t enough to deny Palace the well-earned victory.
