Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson delighted by Jeffrey Schlupp’s form ahead of Liverpool clash

Jeffrey SchluppCrystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has praised versatile Ghana defender Jeffrey Schlupp ahead of the team’s Premier League game against Liverpool on Saturday.Schlupp has proven how versatile and important he can be for the Eagles as he continues to offer tremendous support defensively and offensively.Last week, the Black Stars player grabbed the important equalizer as Palace league leaders Tottenham.”I dont know about the most versatile [player I’ve managed] but hes up there [among the best], of course,” Hodgson told pressmen.”Weve never really seen him as an out and out defender. I know he had a couple of spells before I came as a full-back and even once or twice during my time as a full-back.”But weve never thought of him long term as a defender. We regard him as an attacking player which means he plays across the midfield, which hes more than capable of doing.”At the moment hes playing on the right side and able to cut in on his left foot because we want [Eberechi] Eze to do the same thing on the other side but I could quite easily switch those two over. I dont think it would make a vast difference to our game.”
