Wolves share EPL lead after beating Crystal Palace 2-0
Wolverhampton (UK): Wolverhampton earned a share of the English Premier League lead after beating Crystal Palace 2-0.
Teenage defender Rayan Ait-Nouri's first goal for Wolves and Daniel Podence's other first-half effort highlighted their most complete performance in the league.
Wolves sit third, level on points with Everton and Liverpool, in their best start to a top-flight since 1979.
Palace had a penalty correctly overturned by VAR, and a Michy Batshuayi strike was disallowed for offside but they were well beaten, and Luka Milivojevic was dismissed with four minutes left for a tackle on Joao Moutinho after referee Martin Atkinson's video review.
Wilfried Zaha struggled to make an impact as Palace missed their own chance to make a mark among the pace-setters.
Ait-Nouri, who joined from Angers in the summer, scored from Cheik Kouyate's cross with a first-time drive in the 18th minute.
Podence finished Pedro Neto's cross at the far post in the 27th.
