Puncheon enjoyed the best all-around season of his Crystal Palace career, as he scored six goals and added seven assists while playing in all but one Premier League match.

The 28-year-old formed a strong partnership with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolaise that lifted Palace to a 10the-place finish. Puncheon was rewarded with a four-year contract extension in May and will be with the club for the foreseeable future.

Puncheon scored the equaliser in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

Puncheon started the game on the bench and the home side shot into life when he entered the fray at half time. The free kick flicked off Daley Blind's head to beat David De Gea in the United net yet the home side still succumbed to the Manchester side.

Puncheon had a rare day off the goal and assist sheet in Saturday's 2-1 win against Stoke City.

Puncheon left the scoring to Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray yet had an excellent chance to make the points safe when he blazed over from six yards out. Puncheon has been in scintillating form of late and has three goals plus seven assists this season.

Puncheon (hamstring) is starting Saturday at Stoke City.

Puncheon suffered a hamstring injury last weekend against QPR and manager Alan Pardew didn't appear overly optimistic that Puncheon would play. However, he passed fit and he'll start in the attacking midfield with Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha.

Manager Alan Pardew said Thursday that Puncheon is still being assessed after suffering a hamstring injury last weekend against QPR.

Puncheon appears to be very iffy for Saturday's match against Stoke City, with Wilfried Zaha (hip) also a potential absence for Palace, who have really turned it around offensively under Pardew. If Puncheon and Zaha both sit out, Yannick Bolasie appears to be the highest-upside midfielder for Palace, though with two major weapons unavailable, his value isn't terribly high.

Puncheon came off in the 56th minute of Crystal Palace's 3-1 win over QPR on Saturday after suffering a hamstring injury, the club's official website reports.

Puncheon could not leave the field under his own power, and while he avoided a stretcher, he needed two people to get him off the pitch and to the dressing room. Given how serious it looked, it wouldn't be surprising if he had to miss at least one game.

Puncheon was unable to make an impact in Tuesday's 1-0 loss to Southampton.

Puncheon was unable to pick up from where he left off on Saturday, in Tuesday's game against one of his former clubs. Puncheon, who is part of an attacking trio of midfielders along with Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha, will be licking his lips at Palace's next game against relegation bound QPR.

Puncheon set up all three goals in Saturday's 3-1 win against West Ham.

Puncheon had corners headed in by Glenn Murray and Scott Dann before he helped add a third when Murray headed in his free kick. Puncheon is shining in a more central role under new manager Alan Pardew and has picked up three goals and seven assists so far this season. His form and low value make him a must-buy in most leagues right now.
