Crystal Palace let go of Alan Pardew and replaced him with Sam Allardyce, as Palace went deep into relegation waters. After struggling for some games, Palace have have hit top form as they have won their last three games.

Palace have not conceded a Premier League goal since February’s defeat to Stoke and have moved away from the relegation and could even secure a top-10 finish if they can maintain their form during the remainder of the campaign.

Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy has heaped praises on their new manager as they prepare to face Chelsea on Saturday.

“When a new manager comes in every player wants to try and keep their shirt,” he told the Sun. “Hopefully that’s what I’ve done with Sam Allardyce coming in.

“Sam came in and settled really well – he’s got us firing. It’s always nice to have competition in Julian Speroni and Steve Mandanda.

“I just need to keep working hard. At club level I’m on the back of three wins, three clean sheets so hopefully that can continue,” he added.
