Crystal Palace receive Eberechi Eze injury boost ahead of Wolves clash

Crystal Palace have received a big injury boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Wolves at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

What’s the word?

The Eagles will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to six games when they take on Bruno Lage’s side, and they’ll have almost a fully-fit squad to choose from ahead of kick-off.

In Friday’s press conference, Patrick Vieira confirmed that he has no fresh fitness concerns to consider, while long-term absentees Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson are progressing well in their recoveries.

“Eze is doing well,” revealed the French tactician. “He played 60 mins with the U23s and is feeling really good. So, he is progressing.

“Everybody is feeling well. Nathan Ferguson will start next week to take part in some of the exercises with the first team.”

Vieira was then asked whether Eze is ready to make his return to first team action after taking part in an Under-23s game on Monday, but the 45-year-old ruled him out of contention for today.

He said: “Still a bit too early. He just played 60 minutes. We need him to play more games, complete a 90 minutes before we take him into consideration.”

Are you confident of a Palace victory?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No way!

No way!

Vieira will be delighted

Although Eze is still a little way off from making his Premier League comeback following a five-month layoff with an Achilles problem, Vieira will still be delighted with the creative midfielder’s situation.

The 23-year-old was a key player for Palace last season, recording 10 goal contributions in 34 top-flight appearances, and his imminent return will provide a significant boost to the Eagles.

Vieira will be equally as pleased with the fact that he has no new injury issues to contend with, and that Ferguson is close to putting his fitness woes behind him.

Maintaining the south Londoners’ promising start to the season will be the aim for their new manager, and having his best players available for selection should certainly help him do just that.
