Crystal Palace: Fans slam Van Aanholt’s first-half display

Crystal Palace: Fans slam Van Aanholt’s first-half display - Crystal Palace

Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to Patrick van Aanholt’s first-half display against West Brom on social media. 

The 30-year-old was handed his 17th league start of the campaign, with Wilfried Zaha replacing Andros Townsend in Roy Hodgson’s only change from the defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last time out.

Palace went into the game in 13th place, knowing a win would leapfrog them into 11th position ahead of Leeds United following their lunchtime stalemate with Chelsea.

Should van Aanholt have been sold last summer?





Left-back van Aanholt, valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, has made over 125 appearances for Palace and is facing Baggies winger Matt Phillips at Selhurst Park.

Prior to kick-off, van Aanholt averaged a Premier League match rating of 6.48/10 this season, as per WhoScored – and it seems as if numerous Palace fans think he’s having a tough time of it this afternoon.

Pva is dreadful, just letting Phillips cross

Any positivity has quickly gone. Pat looks awful already – giving the ball away and not stopping crosses – Eze not natural at helping PVA out either.

3 minutes and PvA has been beaten 3 times by Phillips and lost the ball twice. Some going that.
