Evening Standard football writer Jack Rosser is confident that Crystal Palace will be fine under Patrick Vieira.
Palace have started the new Premier League campaign picking up two points from a possible nine. After an opening day 3-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Palace returned to Selhurst Park and drew 0-0 with Premier League newcomers Brentford, before a 2-2 draw against West Ham United, who have started the campaign in particularly good form.
The new Palace manager got to work to assemble his own squad over the summer bringing in six new players, as Michael Olise, Jacob Montes, Marc Guehi, Joachim Anderson, Conor Gallagher and Odsonne Edouard all arrived at Selhurst Park.
Rosser is confident that Palace will do well under Vieira, telling This is Futbol: “It seems that everyone is buying into what Vieira is doing and like you said, Eze isn’t fit yet but he’s well ahead of schedule as we reported a week or two ago, and Olise should be back after the international break.
“I think there’s a lot to be excited about at Palace, once they get it going and if they can hit the back of the net, I think things will start to pick up.”
Under new management and with some exciting new players in their squad, everyone at Palace will be hoping that they click and that they can improve on last season’s 14th placed Premier League finish.
