Jeffrey Schlupp of Crystal Palace pays tribute to his "understanding" with Patrick van Aanholt after scoring his first goal for the club in Saturday's 2-0 win over Fulham.

Schlupp's good result gave Palace a halftime lead, before Wilfried Zaha got all three points at Craven Cottage, after being traversed by Van Aanholt's fine pass.

The latter was also denied an equally good goal when his arrival in the first half was ruled out of play, but showed consistent signs of developing a promising partnership with Schlupp in the left wing.

They were expected to remain rivals to be the left-back of the club's first choice, but Roy Hodgson retained Van Aanholt there and put Schlupp in front of him in the left wing.

Their combination will provide more breadth after Ruben Loftus-Cheek's Chelsea defeat, and Schlupp told the official Palace website: "Patrick and I have a great understanding on that left side.

"At the moment he received the ball there was a bit of eye contact to show him where he wanted the pass and he played it perfectly and I just had to focus on hitting the goal, he came in and I'm happy.

"You could see how much it meant to me with the celebration and when to do it, I've waited a long time and I enjoyed it."

"(Fulham) is a very good team and they play a system, which means they keep the ball well, so we had to dig deep, especially the first 25 minutes or so." We achieved that and achieved the goal at an important moment. before the break. "

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic added Palace's goals: "Schlupp turned very fast and crashed it in. For the second goal, we made some mistakes and finished the action and killed the game."

He gave the full debut of six summer signings, including the arrival of the day limit Joe Bryan, who then left for an injury, and said on his new left back: "He has a problem in the ankle." He could not finish the game. I can not give you much more information.

"I used Joe, who has been with us just one day, I take full responsibility.

"I know it's hard and complicated for the players, Bryan did a great job for us and it will be a great addition to the team."
