While a hint of sentimentality crept in for Patrick Vieira at the Etihad following his short-lived time as a Manchester City player, the Frenchman was simply focused on leading Palace to a respectable result at the home of the champions, and he certainly succeeded.
After Wilfried Zaha‘s tame effort found its way past Ederson into the bottom corner with only six minutes gone, the Eagles held out for the next 82 minutes – during which time Aymeric Laporte was given his marching orders – and Conor Gallagher‘s 88th-minute effort in front of the away crowd confirmed a memorable win for Palace.
Such a result ended a five-game winless run and a streak of four consecutive draws for Vieira’s side, who have now risen to 13th in the table and are one of only four sides in the division to have not lost any of their last five league matches.
One of those other outfits is Wolves, though, but there is much excitement to be had about this Palace side under Vieira, who will surely relish the selection headache about to appear before him when Eberechi Eze finally gets the green light to return to first-team action.
Furthermore, Palace have gone unbeaten in their opening five home games of the season – one of only two sides in the top flight to hold that accolade, along with Liverpool – and Vieira could follow in the footsteps of the revered Ian Holloway should his side avoid defeat at Selhurst Park once again.
Palace starlet Eze played 62 minutes for the Under-23s in a defeat to Blackburn Rovers on Monday night, but he still needs time to build up his fitness and may not be considered for a first-team return just yet.
Nathan Ferguson is also a couple of weeks away from returning to full training, but Vieira did not pick up any fresh concerns at the Etihad and has no need to fix what is not broken this week.
An unchanged XI would see Cheikhou Kouyate and Jordan Ayew hold their places, but Michael Olise must surely come into contention for a start after setting up Gallagher’s strike at the Etihad.
As for Wolves, long-term victims Jonny, Pedro Neto and Yerson Mosquera remain on the sidelines, while Marcal is still uncertain as he battles a calf issue.
However, Rayan Ait Nouri will surely be handed another start either way after providing the assist for Kilman’s header against Everton, and the visitors did not pick up any fresh concerns on Monday.

Hwang Hee-chan saw what would have been his fifth goal in seven Premier League games ruled out for offside last time out, and the South Korean ought to form part of an unchanged frontline with Jimenez and Francisco Trincao.
