LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: HODGSON’S PALACE STUNS OLD TRAFFORD
The League Managers Association’s panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Chris Hughton, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, has determined that the LG Performance of the Week
Award should go to Crystal Palace for their 2 - 1 victory against Manchester United on Saturday 24th August 2019.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,500 competitive matches in professional football.
Crystal Palace Manager Roy Hodgson will receive a celebratory bottle of champagne, courtesy of Tanners Wines, and an LG Performance of the Week trophy in a presentation to commemorate the result.
It was one of those Premier League days that gives you goosebumps: away at Old Trafford in the sun, with the belief that Crystal Palace could cause an upset. And Roy Hodgson's side duly obliged with a special performance resulting in a 2-1 win or the Eagles.
Hodgson makes four changes from Sheffield United line-up, with Schlupp, Ayew, Cahill and Kouyaté coming in.
