Many Crystal Palace fans were not happy with the performance of full-back Patrick van Aanholt during the Premier League match at Selhurst Park against Wolves.
This hasn’t been the first time the player has been slated recently, with many not happy with his performance against West Ham. It is the first time he has started since Boxing Day, with Roy Hodgson favouring emerging academy star Tyrick Mitchell over the Dutchman.
One fan called him a ‘liability’, and the fans have a right to feel frustrated – he has shown some defensive frailty over the course of this season and this certainly hasn’t helped his case to get a new contract before his current one expires this season.
Therefore it will not do him any good to be slated for his poor performance in his return by the Palace fan base and it might see some fans question why Hodgson decided to bring van Aanholt back into the side.
Here is what Palace fans had to say about the left-back
“PVA has been caught out of position 3 times already and it’s the 6th minute”
“Luka doing PVA’s job, pva nowhere to be seen as usual”
“Could drive a bus through the space PVA leaves next to the left centre back #cpfc“
“I’m giving up with Roy. How can the man not see how much of a liability Milivojevic, PVA and Kouyaté are. And to some extent Ayew as well”
“Does Van Aanholt just kick it in the direction he wants even if there’s a wolves player there and thinks if I hit it harder it’ll go thru him?”
“Shocking start from PVA”
