VIDEO REVIEW | Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield Town .
In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Huddersfield Town in the Carabao Cup by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match. Roy Hodgson celebrated his first win as Eagles manager against Huddersfield Town as Bakary Sako’s goal was enough to advance to the fourth round. Palace played without a recognised striker but Sako, playing as a makeshift striker, netted from an Andros Townsend corner on 12 minutes to claim a morale-boosting victory in front of the home fans. How important will Mamadou Sakho be? Should Luka and Riedewald start in midfield together? Will Hodgson keep us up? All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast.
