EPL: Crystal Palace Win Sheffield In Thriller
Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise put on a dazzling attacking display as Crystal Palace came from behind to beat Sheffield United 3-2 on Tuesday and secure back-to-back home wins in the Premier League for the first time this season.
Palace climbed to 14th in the table, with 24 points from 22 matches, relieving some of the pressure on manager Roy Hodgson. Sheffield United stayed rooted to the foot of the table with 10 points from 22 games.
A frantic first half hour at Selhurst Park saw Sheffield United take the lead twice. Ben Brereton Diaz's curled effort put the Blades ahead in the opening minute and James McAtee's deflected shot restored the visitors' advantage after Eze had levelled the scores.
But Eze's second equaliser - a sublime finish from the edge of the area - restored parity, before Olise added to his two assists with a superb, dipping strike in the second half that clipped the post on its way into the Sheffield United net.
