“I think the international break helped them,” Patrick Vieira said of Odsonne Edouard and Will Hughes after their first full weeks with Crystal Palace. “To take time to work and to know the team, the players, the way we want to play."
After joining at the end of the August, the pair of recent signings have had longer than usual to adjust to their new surroundings before competitive matches came their way, with the Premier League on pause for international football.
Edouard, a forward, and Hughes, a midfielder, were both praised by Vieira after their start with the club and could both be in-line for debuts against Tottenham Hotspur.
