Penalty shootout exit for Crystal Palace in Carabao Cup

Crystal Palace exited via a penalty shootout from the Carabao Cup for the second season in a row, with Bournemouth eventually winning the shootout 11-10.

Jeffrey Schlupp is the only starter from the XI that started against Southampton last Saturday.

The only Eagles starter with competitive minutes in his legs for the 2020/21 season, Schlupp, was the one to provide the first moment of intent in the game.

Winning the ball back in Bournemouth’s defensive third, Schlupp drove in from the Cherries’ right-back slot towards the box and found Batshuayi. However, the on-loan striker was surrounded and hassled quickly by the hosts’ defence.

Jordan Ayew was introduced in the second half in an attempt to win the game for Palace in normal time, the Ghanaian forward converted his spot-kick in the marathon shootout as Palace lost 11-10 after a goalless draw.
