Sky Sports pundit Clinton Morrison put Wolverhampton Wanderers’ poor performance against Crystal Palace down to a ‘bad day at the office’.
Bruno Lage’s side lost 2-0 at Selhurst Park, thanks to goals from Wilfried Zaha and Conor Gallagher.
The defeat for Lage’s men was the first loss in six games, and meant we head into the November international break with a sour taste in our mouth.
The Eagles came into the clash unbeaten in their last five Premier League games themselves, which included last weekend’s shock 2-0 win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Former Birmingham City forward Morrison, who was commentating on the game during the Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports News today, felt that Lage’s poor result came down to how ineffective the likes of Trincao, Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee-chan were.
Speaking after the game about Wolves’ attacking trio, Morrison said: “They were really quiet today, but you have got to credit whatever Patrick Vieira said at half-time, because there was a response from Crystal Palace.”
The former Crystal Palace striker highlighted that Bruno Lage threw on Adama Traore and Daniel Podence to try and change the game when they were 2-0 down, but he felt Palace saw the game out well.
Morrison felt it was a “bad day at the office” for Lage’s men and not getting the likes of Trincao, Jimenez and Hwang on the ball in dangerous areas played a pivotal part in the poor result.
The 42-year-old added: “They didn’t get their big players in the game and Palace defended well. It’s just one of those days and it is really disappointing.
“Neves and Moutinho couldn’t get on the ball and make things happen, Palace were the better team.”
