Crystal Palace: Fans slam Townsend vs West Ham - Crystal Palace

A lot of Crystal Palace fans have been slating Eagles winger Andros Townsend over his performance in the south London club’s latest Premier League clash with West Ham United.

The 29-year-old started this game for Roy Hodgson’s side, as he made his 18th Premier League appearance of the 2020/21 campaign.

Who did he make his Crystal Palace debut against?

He helped the Eagles to get off to a bright start, per Sky Sports, as he put a couple of dangerous crosses into the box in the sixth minute.

However, his positive start to the game may not be reflective of his overall performance, as the winger was successful with neither of his two dribbles, played zero key passes, won just one of seven ground duels and lost possession of the ball on a total of 21 occasions, per SofaScore, before Hodgson decided enough was enough and replaced him with Michy Batshuayi in the 66th minute.

So, what have these Crystal Palace fans been saying about Townsend?

With that in mind, it may be understandable why plenty of Palace fans have been slating Townsend over his performance versus West Ham on Twitter.
