Crystal Palace has suffered a major blow after it emerged that their in-form midfielder Jeffrey Schlupp is set to be sidelined for at least a month with a hamstring injury.

Jeffrey Schlupp suffered the injury during Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win against Sheffield United in the Premier League over the weekend.

He pulled out in the first half after scoring the opening goal and was forced off after a period of treatment.

Manager Roy Hodgson said: "Jeffrey Schlupp is more concerning as it is definitely a muscle injury. He felt a hamstring pull."

"It looks like we're going to miss him for a while and that's unfortunate because he's been doing very, very well for us."

The 28-year-old has been in fine form this season, contributing to three goals.

He has scored two and assisted one despite being defensive-minded.
