Eze: Crystal Palace boss Glasner gives rave review of Anglo-Nigerian star

Onana: Cameroon goalkeeper makes difficult admission after Man United draw

Crystal Palace manager Oliver Glasner has described Eberechi Eze as the Eagles’ “most dangerous player”.

The 25-year-old England player of Nigerian descent assisted Jean-Philippe Mateta for the Palace’s opening goal in Saturday’s 1-1 Premier League draw at Nottingham Forest.

It was Eze’s second goal involvement in four games since returning from a muscle injury that saw him miss four league games.

It took his goal contribution tally in the league to eight (six goals, two assists) and 10 goals in all competitions (six goals, four assists).

“He was our most dangerous player,” Glasner said of Eze. “He was involved in the 1-0, and he had the big chance just before half-time. [From the corner in the second-half] 9 or 10 times [out of ten], he scores, and this was the 10th, so he misses the far post.

“But also there were some moments, always when we moved the ball quickly, we had control of the game. There were some situations where we could have moved the ball quicker, and we didn’t do it, and then we lost the ball. This also gave them a little bit of momentum, because then the crowd came back.”

Crystal Palace sit in 14th place on the Premier League table, eight points clear of the relegation zone and will travel to Bournemouth midweek for their next fixture.
