Schlupp facing several weeks out after hamstring injury

 Ghana international, Jeffrey Schlupp, is set to miss several weeks of action after injuring himself in Crystal Palace’s win over Sheffield United last weekend.

The midfielder was very instrumental in Palace’s 2-0 victory by scoring the match opener before being pulled off in the first half due to an injury.

Schlupp was replaced after 40 minutes by Eberechi Eze, who scored a sensational second goal to seal Palace’s win, as the Eagles moved up to 14th in the Premier League.

A scan on the 28-year-old on Monday revealed a strain on his hamstring, which could keep him out for some weeks.

Disappointed in the turn out of events, Palace manager, Roy Hodgson, reacted over the absence of the midfielder.

“Jeff Schlupp is more concerning as it is definitely a muscle injury. He felt a hamstring pull.

”It looks like we’re going to miss him for a while and that’s unfortunate because he’s been doing very, very well for us,” he said.

Schlupp has made 15 Premier League appearances for Crystal Palace this season, scoring twice and providing one assist.
