Warnock: Defenders stand no chance against this Palace star

Crystal Palace Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock says that it is impossible to defend against Yannick Bolasie, after the winger put in a brilliant performance against Everton.

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock says that opposition players have no chance of defending against Yannick Bolasie. 

The winger, who is blessed with great pace and skill, has been one his side's top performers so far this season and he was a major threat in the Eagles win 3-2 against Everton at the weekend.

Bolasie played a starring role in the unexpected triumph and Warnock was full of praise for the player, who is developing into one of the most exciting talents he has at his disposal. 

"I've seen Yannick for a long time now and he always contributes and is a threat," he said to the Belfast Telegraph. 

"The problem with him is he doesn't know what he's going to do next so the defenders have got no chance. He was very positive today and he covered a lot of ground."

Palace were expected to struggle this season after the departure of Tony Pulis two days before the season started throw the club into turmoil.

However, their performances over the early part of the season have been encouraging and this win is sure to put in spring in their step. 

They had been heavy underdogs to pick up the victory, but showed a ruthless streak in-front of goal to pick up the unlikely win and elevate themselves up the table to 15th, much to Warnock's delight.

"This gives everyone a lot of belief," the Palace boss said. 

"I thought we deserved to win it. We were apprehensive in the first 20 minutes and gave them a bit too much respect but from that moment we grew into the game and we said it was a game we could go on and try to win.

"What pleased me was that Everton are a good side and we had to hang in there at times and put our head in and make tackles and blocks, and I like that kind of football."

Palace's next match is against Leicester City and they will be looking to build upon their momentum by beating the newly promoted side.
