Ghana defender Jeffery Schlupp scored his first goal for Crystal Palace over the weekend, the same day as he reached the 100-match landmark in the English Premier League.
The left-back was fully in charge as Crystal Palace made a fine start to their Premier League campaign which turned out to be historic and elating for the Ghanaian.
Goals by Schlupp and Wilfried Zaha helped them to a 2-0 win at Fulham in a lively match at Craven Cottage on Saturday which turned out to be his 100th appearance in the top-flight.
The Palace defender was delighted with his historic feat as he helped the visitors controlled the game after the break.
"Amazing to start the season with a great win and a goal on my 100th @premierleague appearance! Fans were superb," Schlupp wrore on Twitter.
