Riedewald sends Palace into quarters

Riedewald sends Palace into quarters


Jairo Riedewald scored a late winner as Crystal Palace beat Championship Stoke to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Palace led when Jean-Philippe Mateta’s deflected shot landed to Cheikhou Kouyate, who hammered the ball into the top corner from six yards out.

Josh Tymon levelled for Stoke moments later after good play by Romaine Sawyers on his return from injury.

Substitute Riedewald slotted in the winner after Jack Bonham punched away Conor Gallagher’s cross.

The draw for the quarter-finals will be on Thursday at roughly 19:45 GMT.

Palace – who handed a full debut to teenage Irish defender Tayo Adaramola – were made to work hard by Stoke in a close game that had very few clear-cut chances.

Steven Fletcher’s ambitious volley in injury time was stopped by Jack Butland for the only save of the game by either goalkeeper.

One of the best chances saw Palace defender Joachim Andersen head Liam Moore’s 20-yard lob off the line.

Palace boss Vieira, who won four FA Cups for Arsenal and one with Manchester City, is now only two games away from the first cup final of his managerial career.

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira to BBC Sport: “That’s what we expected. It was really tough. It was a cup tie and we had to work hard to get the win.

“Today we were a little bit flat and we found the strength to score the second goal.

“We have to give them a lot of credit. They played really well. We weren’t ready mentally for a cup tie and we found it difficult. We have to learn. We tried to change it in the second half, it was better.

“When we scored we thought the game was over but this is a cup tie.”

Stoke City boss Michael O’Neill to BBC Sport: “At the very least [we deserved to go to extra time]. I think for a period in the second half we were the better team. There was very little in the first half.

“The first goal wasn’t a corner. We have all the technology to see if it’s a goal. Having seen it back, the Palace player’s shot doesn’t come off James Chester. We felt harshly done by.

“At 1-1 we looked the team more likely to win. Unfortunately we can’t defend the corner. It lands to the feet of their lad. It comes through a crowd of bodies and ends in the bottom corner and that’s why we’re out of the cup.”
