While Palace went down 3-2 to West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns, Sunderland suffered a 1-0 loss to West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground in London.
Wright started his professional club football career at Palace and played with current Eagles boss Alan Pardew at Selhurst Park.
The Eagles could get dragged into the relegation battle if results do not improve soon, with Newcastle already struggling for survival in the Premier League.
Former Arsenal striker Wright has posted the following message on Twitter regarding the situation, while also making a point about his analysis of Sunderland’s performance against West Ham.
Sunderland fans it seems MOTD agrees with me about your performance yesterday.— Ian Wright (@IanWright0) February 28, 2016
Sunderland and Crystal Palace will face each other at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League on Tuesday evening, while Newcastle United will take on Stoke City away from home at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday evening.
