Some Crystal Palace fans have been slamming the display of Jeffrey Schlupp in their side’s 3-0 loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League.
There were not many performances who stood out for the Eagles away at Dean Smith’s team, especially given the fact that they played the second half of the game against 10 men as Tyrone Mings was sent off for a second booking after a challenge on Wilfried Zaha.
Should Schlupp start for Crystal Palace?
Schlupp did not have the best of matches, as he recorded a very low 5.7 overall rating on Sofascore, which was the lowest out of any of his teammates to have set foot on the pitch and the joint-lowest out of any player, along with the red-carded Mings.
The 28-year-old also failed to record a single shot, key pass, accurate cross or long ball in the clash, while also losing possession of the ball no fewer than 19 times, the joint-most out of his teammates with Eberechi Eze (Sofascore).
Crystal Palace fan reaction to Schlupp display
These members of the Selhurst Park faithful slammed his performance on Twitter, with one CPFC supporter even going as far as to say that the winger was ‘anonymous’:
“Only really scores tap ins and never assists. Lazy at tracking back as well. Really not sure what people see in Schlupp. Can run fast but that’s about it Not a good footballer at all, once Roy’s gone he’s a bench warmer”
“People have been begging for Schlupp and Benteke to play but they’ve both been anonymous for most of this game, it’s not just his team selection”
“I don’t understand why Clyne and Townsend aren’t starting in front of Ward and Schlupp… #cpfc”
“Schlupp has 4 assists in 4 seasons yet Hodgson would still rather play him, out of position, than Townsend who has twice the amount of goals and 3 times the number of assists. Madness.”
“Love Schlupp but if Andros can play more like he did against West Ham he’s got to come on, Schlupp done nothing really”
“Schlupp on the right side doesn’t work. So much better on the left. #AVLCRY #CPFC”
