0 Comments

Alan Pardew has Crystal Palace moving up the table as his players continue to respond to the managerial change, with two Eagles being selected for the Team of the Week for Matchweek 24.

Julian Speroni kept a clean sheet for Palace and Joe Ledley scored the game-winning goal as Alan Pardew’s men moved six points clear of relegation.

Phil Jagielka finds himself on the back line for the second straight week as the Everton skipper helped keep Liverpool scoreless in the Merseyside derby, as Branislav Ivanovic also makes the cut after burying a screamer for Chelsea.

Ki Sung-Yueng and Sadio Mane scored in their returns from international team duty, while Jermain Defoe continues to produce for Sunderland.

Rounding out the side is none other than Harry Kane, whose brace in the North London derby earned him Player of the Week honors as well.
