The Premier League table since Crystal Palace appointed Patrick Vieira
Patrick Vieira is coming under increasingly heavy pressure at Crystal Palace after a nightmare run of 12 matches without a win, but how have Palace performed in the Premier League throughout his entire tenure?
Vieira replaced Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park in the summer of 2021 and led Palace to 12th place and an FA Cup semi-final last season.
But the south London club are currently embroiled in a relegation struggle, having not won a match in any competition since New Year’s Eve.
The Guardian are reporting that chairman Steve Parish has been deeply unimpressed by performances in recent weeks and has begun sounding out potential replacements such as Burnley’s Vincent Kompany and Michael Carrick of Middlesbrough.
Vieira was asked after Palace’s first defeat against Brighton since 2019 whether he retained the faith of the Palace hierarchy and responded: “You will have to ask those questions to them. I can’t answer for them.”
Palace are currently 12th but only three points clear of 18th-placed Bournemouth in a remarkably tight Premier League relegation battle. We’ve crunched the numbers to see how Palace have fared in comparison to their rivals over the entirety of Vieira’s reign.
