Willy Bolly equalzed for Wolves in the second half. After this, Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa also scored for the visitors. It was really a great win for Wolverhampton.
As for Crystal Palace, the Londoners are currently 14th in the league standings with 19 points. Their record so far shows 5 wins, 4 draws and 11 defeats. They are 4 points above the relegation zone and the 18th Burnley, but they must continue to win points, if they want to survive.
