Published on: 20 May 2022

Crystal Palace attacker Jeffrey Schlupp says he is enjoying his football under Patrick Vieira this season.

Schlupp has been one of consistent players for Palace making 31 league appearances this season, scoring four goals and providing two assists.

The 29-year-old, who scored against Aston Villa over the weekend was in action again for the Eagles in their 3-2 defeat at Everton on Thursday.

"He's (Patrick Vieira) definitely got to understand everyone personally," Schlupp said as quoted by club's official website. "He understood everyone's strengths and weaknesses to work on. I think that's the sign of a good manager.

"You've got to understand your players really quickly in such a short space of time. It's his first year. He'll only get more and more understanding of the players and unlock more from the boys."

He added, "It's a mentality shift. I'm sure everyone goes into every game trying to win it, but I think teams are really starting to not like playing against us. Coming to Selhurst Park, especially with the backing that the crowd gives us, is unbelievable."

"We definitely don't want to make it a nice place to come, so I think we've done that and scared some opposition coming to us."
