Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp was sensational as Crystal Palace settled for a point against Manchester City at Selhurst Park on Monday.

However, the defending champions endured a frustrating night as they were unable to bag the three points as they were frustrated by the Eagles.

How Schlupp fared against Manchester City

Deployed as a defensive midfielder, the 25-year-old did some important marking and covered to stifle Riyad Mahrez's influence.

Schlupp was flanked by Senegalese international Cheick Kouyate as they controlled the affairs of the game making it difficult for Manchester City's Rodri and Kevin De Bryune to dictate the game in the latter stages.

Per Sofascore, the versatile player delivered 11 accurate passes (69%), won 50% of his eight duels, made four (1) tackle, and two (1) interception.

How did social media react to Sclhupp's performance?

Below is how Schlupp sent the football faithful into a frenzy on Twitter.

Ghana International Scores As Crystal Palace Shares the Spoils With Burnley

Sports Brief earlier reported that Black Stars utility player Jeffrey Schlupp scored a goal for Crystal Palace in their 1-1 draw with Burnley at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The 29-year-old Ghanaian needed only nine minutes to score the game's opening goal and give his side an early lead only for Luka Milivojevic to score an own goal as the game ended even.

It was a dominant performance by the home side and would count themselves unlucky to have drawn the game against a resurgent Burnley.
