(Reuters) - Wolverhampton Wanderers climbed to third in the Premier League after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 on Friday thanks to goals from teenage wingback Rayan Ait-Nouri and Daniel Podence.

 

Ait-Nouri, 19, handed Wolves the lead in the 18th minute after latching on to a clearance and driving a bouncing shot into the far corner for his first goal in senior football on his Premier League debut.

 

Podence made it 2-0 with a superb cushioned volley nine minutes later.

 

Palace had several VAR decisions go against them, with a goal disallowed and a penalty award overturned, both for offside.

 

They suffered a further setback when Luka Milivojevic was given his marching orders in the 87th minute after a review showed a nasty foul on Joao Moutinho.

 

The win puts Wolves up to third on 13 points from seven games. They trail leaders Everton and second-placed Liverpool on goal difference. Palace are ninth on 10 points.
