Many Crystal Palace fans were not happy with the performance of Tyrick Mitchell in the loss against Leeds United in the Premier League.
Mitchell had been starting to become a fan favourite for his defensive work with the South London side. The 21-year old has featured 12 times in the Premier League and has managed, on average, 2.6 clearances and 3.6 and 1.1 interceptions a game this term (WhoScored).
However, he did not have his best performance at Elland Road. Mitchell lost four of his ground duels, one aerial duel and also lost possession 17 times (SofaScore). One fan said he was ‘so poor’.
He is still only 21, so there will naturally be some bad performances along the way as he learns how to grow into a Premier League player. This season will be his first full campaign in the division, and as an emerging academy star, there is perhaps some added pressure on his back due to the fact that fans love to see homegrown products succeed.
These fans took to Twitter, both during and after the game, to discuss the youngster’s performance, and it’s fair to say they were not impressed.
Here is what Palace fans said about Mitchell:
“Would take Mitchell off, drop PVA to left back and bring Townsend on. #cpfc”
“Mitchell looking dodgy, CBs horribly slow- going to be another long half #cpfc“
“Plenty of time to recover and not helped out with PVA now Eze infront of him but Mitchell’s been poor”
“He’s been poor after a number of good games. But then Clyne, Dann, Cahill, Mitchell, PvA, Jairo and Ayew have all been just as bad.”
“Mitchell so so poor. Shocking sub taking off Van Aanholt instead of him”
“Mitchell’s worst game in a Palace shirt”
