Crystal Palace: Fans fiercely critical of Luka Milivojevic v West Ham

Crystal Palace: Fans fiercely critical of Luka Milivojevic v West Ham -Crystal Palace News

Many Crystal Palace fans hit out at Luka Milivojevic during their Premier League clash with West Ham United on Saturday evening. 

The Eagles were looking to kick-off 2022 with a win after signing off for last year with a 3-0 victory over Norwich City. Top four-chasing West Ham had the same objective in mind after they beat Watford 4-1 last time out.

Patrick Vieira made two changes from the side which overcame the Canaries, with Milivojevic and Christian Benteke replacing Cheikhou Kouyate and Jean-Phillipe Mateta. The Serbian was making his first start since the 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa on 27 November.

Milivojevic’s error vs West Ham

In first half stoppage time, with Palace already trailing 2-0, the ‘silly’ Milivojevic committed what The South London Press’ Edmund Brack called a ‘needless’ handball. Referee Darren England was advised to consult the pitchside monitor and he duly awarded the Hammers a penalty, which Manuel Lanzini converted.

On top of that, he misfired with four of his six crosses and both of the shots he attempted before he was withdrawn on the hour mark, along with giving the ball away 10 times (via SofaScore).

A number of Eagles fans on Twitter slammed the Serbian’s performance this evening, with one labelling him a “passenger”.

“Luka is such a Hodgson player. He’s always a calamity. He only knows how to bumble about the pitch and pass the ball backwards. A waste of a squad place. I get the injury/Covid situation, but he’s a liability and has been for years”

“That is one of the stupidest handballs I’ve seen. No pressure. Take Luka off”

“Time for Luka Milivojevic to go. Ever since he got a new contract he has looked way out of his depth and in this squad he looks like a passenger. Get him off and get Jairo on.”

“We need to buy a replacement for Luka Milivojevic. We can’t have this immobile nonsense as our back up the rest of the season. Where’s Jairo?”

“Luka should never play for us again, 2 1/2 years he’s been poor for us. Not a Prem player.”
