'Forget Wilfried Zaha, only one man is really irreplaceable'

A VITAL six points from two home games on the trot was just what Palace needed to reinforce our claim to an automatic promotion spot, writes Stephen Bridle.

Currently sitting in fourth place, four points from second and nine from the top, we've put ourselves in a very favourable position – and with 13 games left to play we've not picked a bad time to start finding form.

Following the unexpected success of the Eagles this campaign taunts of "one man team" are not uncommon – but which man?

We've got a strong squad and since Holloway's dealing in the January window we've got decent cover for most positions.

There's one man in our squad though, that is irreplaceable. That man's name is Glenn Murray.

With 27 league goals to his name at the time of writing, the 29-year-old sharpshooter, who joined Palace on a free from the south coast is the second top scorer in Europe – behind only Ballon d'Or holder Lionel Messi.

There are other key players in the squad that we'd really struggle without.

Jedinak springs to mind as the obvious choice; but it is Muzza, with his tireless work rate, absolute professionalism and keen eye for goal who is most vital to the way that we play.

When you're playing with one centre-forward you need an outlet.

Someone with a physical presence able to hold up the ball and bring other players into the game; scoring goals doesn't half help too.

We're lucky to have him, especially considering what a shrewd piece of business his signing turned out to be, and with new contract talks opening, scoring goals for Palace could be on the cards for a while yet.
