Crystal Palace match-winner Jeffrey Schlupp seemed to have made due with the instructions from his boss Roy Hodgson.
Schlupp is gradually turning to be the super sub for the Eagles after coming off the bench for the second game running to grab the winner for his side.
Having scored the winning goal against Burnley over the weekend, the Ghanaian snatched another important goal in Tuesday’s game against Bournemouth to push Palace up on the table.
He however reflects on some directions given to him by his manager before stepping onto the field.
“I came on at left-back and we had 10 men which made it extra hard. We got in at half-time, spoke to the gaffer, he just kept us calm and said the game is definitely there to be won,” he told cpfc.co.uk.
“He didn’t just want to go out there playing for a draw, he wanted us to attack when the right moments came and we did that. Luckily for the team and for me personally, it was a clinical attack.
“I’m really happy getting another [goal] and it’s extra special for the team to get back-to-back wins in the Prem. There’s nothing like Selhurst under the lights and they [the fans] are so great supporting us. We want to repay them with victories – especially at home – and I’m glad we did that today.”
The 26-year-old now has two goals in the Premiership this season.
