Crystal Palace lost out at Sheffield United as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at Bramall Lane.
The Eagles were second best right from the first whistle at Bramall Lane and struggled to trouble Blades goalkeeper Dean Henderson barring a couple of tame efforts. They finished the game with just six shots compared to the home side’s 15 (via WhoScored).
Roy Hodgson will have been disappointed with what he saw from his team, especially the big name players in his team like Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend, who failed to have any sort of impact on the game as Palace slumped to defeat. WhoScored gave the former a match rating of just 6.3.
The Palace fans too were seemingly irritated with their team’s performance and there were a lot of comments on social media following the game as a large selection of Eagles fans took aim at their team.
Twitter is always a place where fans can voice their opinion and say what they feel, and the Palace players won’t be wanting to read recent comments any time soon…

I'm all for supporting your team. But when you see them "play" like that I cant. Outplayed both in skill and determination by a newly promoted side. Disgraceful performance. Deserve to go down.
