Crystal Palace faced up against Wolves at Molineux on Friday with a chance to go second in the league. The South London side put in a poor display however as they lost 2-0, and one player who a lot of fans are slating is Luka Milivojevic.
The 29 year-old central midfielder came back into the side last week following a James McArthur injury, and the manager backed him again against Wolves.
However, the Serbian highlighted why he has had to settle for a position on the bench as of late. He received a 6.7 rating and gave possession away ten times (SofaScore). One fan went so far as to call him a ‘liability’, such was his carelessness with the ball.
With the Eagles only playing with two midfielders, their central players needed to be at their best, and sadly for Palace, Milivojevic wasn’t. The captain then went and got himself sent off, furthering the frustration of the fans below.
Palace fans react to Milivojevic display vs Wolves:
Why the hell is Luka in this side, shocking player. More baffling even if you bring him back in the side why is he on set pieces?… #cpfc

Clyne, Luka and PVA all letting us down massively here. Be lucky not to concede 5 or more #cpfc

If Roy had any bottle about him he’d pull luka off now. You can’t have a liability in the middle of the park, especially with only two centre mids! #CPFC
