Eberechi Eze was the star of the show again as his goal proved to be the match-winner in Crystal Palace's 1-0 win over Wolves in the Premier League.

The Eagles have been on a winless streak in the outings against West Ham, Man City and Arsenal but their only victory was over Sheffield United at the start of the New Year.

It took an hour for Palace to break into Wolves defence and it was the Premier League debutant Eze that scored another beautiful goal.
