Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise revved up Crystal Palace to hammer struggling Leeds United 5-1 after falling a goal down, to post back-to-back Premier League wins under manager Roy Hodgson.


The enthralling win at Elland Road on Sunday without Palace’s injured talismanic top scorer Wilfried Zaha, saw the ‘Eagles’ soar with four second-half goals that flew them up to the 12th spot on the log, while Leeds stagnated on 16th position – two points atop the dreaded drop edge.


Yet, it was the home side that controlled the proceedings at the initial part of game, peppering Palace goalie Sam Johnstone few times before Patrick Bamford broke the tie just past the 21st minute mark from a well-placed header off a corner kick to dock his 50th goal for Leeds.


Johnstone then held firm by managing a handful of saves that kept the visitors in contention, before Palace punished the home side for not taking their chances to extend their lead, by equalizing on the dot of halftime off a set-piece which saw Marc Guehi tie the game with just a whisker within his reach from the goal line.


The Eagles took the second by storm scoring a couple of goals within the spate of two minutes with Jordan Ayew’s header pushing them in front, and Eberechi Eze’s effort increasing Palace’s lead to 3-1-both goals comming off assists from 21-year-old Michael Olise.


Odsonne Edouard then shot low into the bottom corner to score his first league goal from October, off another Olise assist, his third in as much as 16 minutes.


Ayew added his second goal of the game with a simple tap-in off a blocked shot that found him unmarked, for a convincing Palace victory against Leeds United at Elland Road.
