Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira is convinced by the quality of Odsonne Edouard.

Vieira says Edouard is ready to start against Brighton on Monday but has urged patience with the £15million forward.

“Yes I think he has been fit and is ready to start a game. It is just moving to a different country and moving to the Premier League, he needs time to adapt," Vieira said.

“We will take our time to make him feel comfortable in the club, in the way we want to play but he is physically and mentally ready to start the game.

“I am pleased and happy with him. He came on, scored those two goals and came on against Liverpool and created a couple of situations.

“He is a player who needs to adapt himself to the Premier League and to the club but he is working well. I think he gives me one more option up front about who to select for the game."
