Tony Pulis took charge of the Eagles this week and will be hoping to start his reign with a win over fellow strugglers Norwich at Carrow Road.

Hughton is full of respect for Pulis, having locked horns with him during his lengthy spell at Stoke, and expects his arrival to prompt an immediate response from Palace.

"How quickly Tony wants to change things we just don't know, but it is normal when a new manager comes in there is a bit fiercer competition for places," he said.

"First and foremost Tony's teams have always played with a lot of character and organisation. Has he played a fairly direct game at times? Yes he has, but he has been able to adapt over the seasons and you saw that at Stoke where he brought in a lot of very good footballers.

"Tony will play the game he feels will get him results and he has been very successful at that."

The performances of winger Nathan Redmond have been a rare positive for the off-colour Canaries and Hughton believes he has a bright future.

"He is certainly giving himself the best opportunity because he is someone who works very hard on the training pitch and anyone who has spoken to him would realise he is a very mature young man for 19," he said.

"Nathan will have ups and downs with his progress, and even within games where he will show great quality and then perhaps not be as involved, which is partly due to the position he plays as much as his age, but he will give himself every chance of developing his game and becoming a very good player."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
