Vieira’s side is the first team in the Premier League since 2003 that has failed to have a shot on target in three successive games.

Club chairman Steve Parish said:

"It is with enormous regret that this difficult decision has been made.

"Ultimately, results in recent months have placed us in a precarious league position and we felt a change is necessary to give us the best chance of retaining Premier League status.

"That said, Patrick's impact since joining us in the summer of 2021 has been significant, and he is held in the highest regard by myself, and all of his colleagues.”

Patrick Vieira replaced Roy Hodgson as Crystal Palace manager in the summer of 2021. He guided them to 12th finish in the Premier League last season.
