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.
Should van Aanholt have been sold last summer?
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.

‘I hate Patrick van aanholt, quicker he leaves the better imo‘”
“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.“
“PVA already spun inside out“
“3 minutes and PvA has been beaten 3 times by Phillips and lost the ball twice. Some going that.“
