Crystal Palace: Fans slam James Tomkins v Spurs

Crystal Palace: Fans slam James Tomkins v Spurs -Crystal Palace News

A number of Crystal Palace fans were critical of James Tomkins’ performance in their 3-0 defeat at Tottenham this afternoon.

The Eagles weren’t helped by a first half red card for Wilfried Zaha and trailed 2-0 at the interval, with Heung-min Son adding a third later in the match as the home side ran out comprehensive winners.

Who scored Palace's first goal of 2021?

Tomkins partnered Joachim Andersen at the heart of the Palace defence but he did not enjoy his afternoon at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. As per SofaScore, he lost 50% of his duels and failed to make a tackle or interception, while also contributing little on the ball, with a lack of key passes.

Some Palace supporters pointed the finger at him and Andersen over the two Spurs goals, while the 32-year-old also received a yellow card for his troubles when he was booked just before the interval for a cynical foul on Oliver Skipp.
