Crystal Palace player ratings for 2014-15: Bolasie supreme, Kelly impresses

We rate Crystal Palace's players' performances over the 2014-15 campaign to date.


Julian Speroni - 7

Another decent season for the Crystal Palace goalkeeper, who is a reliable performer for the club and a fans' favourite. 

Wayne Hennessey - 6

Has been Speroni's understudy all campaign and failed to usurp him in the starting line-up. 


Scott Dann - 8

Dann has had a brilliant season and there is a clamour for him to get back into the England squad from Palace supporters. The robust centre-back has claimed two goals and two assists in the league, whilst he also makes nearly a tackle per game.

Brede Hangeland - 6

Has only made 13 league appearances for Palace and has never fully established himself in the team. 

Joel Ward - 7.5

The full-back is one of Palace's key men and this season has only further gone on to confirm that. 

Martin Kelly - 7.5

An impressive debut season for Kelly at Selhurst Park. He makes more tackles (3.2) per game than any other defender at Palace. 

Damian Delaney - 7

May be ageing now, but he remains important for Palace and has made 23 appearances for the Eagles this term. 

Zeki Fryers - 5

Not had much of an impact and has been sent out on loan. One for the future. 

Adrian Mariappa - 6

Has been solid enough on the rare occasions he has been called upon.

Papa Soure - 7

Looks to have been a decent January addition from Alan Pardew. Has the pace and energy to get around the field. 


Mile Jedinak - 8

Another excellent campaign from the Australian. He is the shield in Palace's midfield and offers great protection to the defence. Jedinak makes 3.5 tackles per game, but he also offers a lot going forward with five goals to his name and he makes more passes (40) in a match than any other Palace player, on average. 

Joe Ledley - 7

Ledley has been one of Palace's most consistent performers this season and his energy is key to Palace winning the midfield battle.

Barry Bannan - 4

Just cannot seem to make an impact at Palace. 

Stuart O'Keefe - 5

Sold to Cardiff City in January, O'Keefe did appear a bit below the quality required at Palace. 

Adlene Guedioura - 5

Another player who doesn't seem to have the ability to take Palace to the next level.

James McArthur - 7

McArthur has had a decent season at Palace, where he has made 24 appearances. The Scot is a well-rounded midfielder and creates a chance for his teammates every two games. 

Jordon Mutch - 6.5

Has impressed since arriving at Selhurst Park in January and seems to have a bright future. 

Jonny Williams - 5

He may be a talent, but he just can't seem to make an impression at Premier League level for Palace. 


Jason Puncheon - 8

Puncheon has had an excellent season and has been one of the club's best players since Alan Pardew took charge. The former Southampton man is a great source of creativity - forging two chances a game for his teammates, on average - whilst he also has found the back of the net three times. 

Yannick Bolasie - 9

Palace's player of the season, Bolasie has been in brilliant form throughout the campaign and his dribbling ability makes him a real weapon. The Democratic Republic of Congo international takes on his opponent 2.5 times a match and he has racked up six assists. 

Shola Ameobi - 5.5

Hasn't done much since arriving in January, making just four appearances. 

Marouane Chamakh - 6.5

Seems a threat in his attacking midfield role at Palace, where he has made an opportunity per game. 

Dwight Gayle - 7

Palace joint-top scorer with five goals for the campaign, Gayle has done well, considering a lack of opportunities under Neil Warnock. He is a clinical finisher. 

Wilfried Zaha - 7

Has been brilliant since being brought back to Palace in January and is thriving at a place where he feels loved. 

Glenn Murray - 7

Has done well since being given a chance by Pardew, scoring four times in nine appearances. 

Kevin Doyle - 5

Doyle has played just three times for Palace this season.

Jerome Thomas - 5

Palace's forgotten man, Thomas will surely have to leave in the summer as he seems to have little future at Selhurst Park.
