Cape Town - Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp has been a welcome addition to the Crystal Palace defence, says goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.
The 24-year-old won the Premier League title with Leicester City last
season, but joined the Eagles in search of more playing time, and has
picked up the slack with Patrick van Aanholt out injured.
"We were unlucky with Patrick, it was a nasty injury at West Brom but
Jeffrey has come in and he's done really well and didn't even look like
he hadn't played many games," Hennessey said, via London News Online.
"We're not making as many mistakes as we were and we're creating a
lot more. The back four have been fantastic, they've been so solid and
good as a unit. He's really happy with himself."
While Schlupp spent last season successfully chasing the league
title, this campaign he is more focused on avoiding relegation, with
Palace 16th in the standings and just four points above the drop zone
ahead of Saturday's trip across London to face Chelsea at Stamford
