Edouard double as Palace Stun 10-Man Spurs

Odsonne Edouard scored twice on his Crystal Palace debut as Patrick Vieira's side secured an emphatic 3-0 win over 10-man Tottenham at Selhurst Park. The striker, an £18.5m signing from Celtic on Deadline Day, scored his first just seconds after coming off the bench in the 84th minute then netted his second, and Palace's third, in stoppage time. Earlier, the depleted visitors had been reduced to 10 men when defender Japhet Tanganga received two yellow cards in the space of five minutes early in the second half, the first for a shoulder-barge on Zaha, who was also booked in the subsequent melee, and the second for a late lunge on Jordan Ayew. Palace were still searching for a breakthrough at that point despite dominating from the start of the game, and it arrived in the 76th minu...

Deadline Day: Crystal Palace swoop for Celtic striker Edouard

Crystal Palace completed the signing of French under-21 international Odsonne Edouard from Celtic for a reported initial fee of £15 million ($21 million)ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline. The Eagles were eager to improve their attacking options after scoring just twice in new manager Patrick Vieira’s first three Premier League games. Edouard had just one season left on his deal at Celtic and has signed a four-year deal with the Premier League club. “Scoring goals in the Premier League may be the biggest challenge in my career,” Edouard told the Palace website. “But I’m confident in myself and my team-mates to be successful.” Edouard progressed through the Paris Saint-Germain academy and spent time on loan at Toulouse before joining Celtic initially on loan in 2017.

Helander header Sees Ranger Edge Celtic

Filip Helander's thumping second-half header saw Rangers beat Celtic 1-0 at Ibrox in the first Old Firm meeting of the season. Helander's 66th-minute goal proved the difference between the two rivals in what was a tight and cagey contest between the Glasgow rivals. Both sides could have scored before half-time, only for Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard to somehow miss from six yards out, before Rangers winger Ryan Kent hit the post. But Rangers - with manager Steven Gerrard not in attendance after a recent Covid-19 outbreak at the Scottish Premiership champions - held on to move third in the table and open up a three-point lead over Celtic, who stay sixth.

Brown Assist as Celtic Beat St Johnstone in Final Home Game

Scott Brown produced an impressive assist as Celtic beat a Covid-hit St Johnstone 4-0 in his final home match. Brown's long diagonal ball set up Odsonne Edouard to double Celtic's lead in the 24th minute. David Turnbull had netted the opener 60 seconds earlier after loan goalkeeper Zdenek Zlamal had been controversially penalised for picking up a passback. Zlamal had been pitched in for an unexpected Saints debut with the visitors without more players amid what manager Callum Davidson termed an ongoing issue with Covid. The Hearts goalkeeper was also beaten by Kristoffer Ajer's deflected strike and Karamoko Dembele's first goal for Celtic. Aberdeen-bound Brown arrived to a welcoming party of fans outside the main entrance and there were several banners in his honour in t...

Arteta to Replace Lacazette with £15m Striker

  Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has made Celtic striker, Odsonne Edouard a target, as a potential replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, according to the UK Telegraph. For some time now, Leicester City have felt they had won the race to sign the 23-year-old, with a £15million agreement close to being reached. However, Arsenal have been monitoring Edouard for over a year and will look to make a move for the striker, who will have just one year remaining on his contract with Celtic this summer. Lacazette will also have just one year left on his deal this summer, and the Gunners are set to make a decision over whether he will be sold or handed a contract extension. Leicester believe they are in a strong position to sign Edouard, as Brendan Rodgers has already managed th...

Sparta Prague 4-1 Celtic: Bhoys bow out after repeat performance

Odsonne Edouard fired Celtic into the lead at Sparta Prague, but they were beaten 4-1 again and exited the Europa League. Celtic were again tormented by Lukas Julis in another 4-1 defeat to Sparta Prague as they crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday. Neil Lennon's Bhoys had lost by the same scoreline at home to Sparta earlier in the month and Odsonne Edouard's opener in the away fixture provided only a brief moment of respite before the hosts responded. Dismal defensive lapses allowed David Hancko and Julis - the hat-trick hero in Scotland scoring twice this time - to prematurely end this year's European adventure.

The Hoops were awarded the title on a points-per-game basis after the season was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, with Edouard subsequently picking up the Golden Boot award.
