Loads of Crystal Palace fans have been reacting to their defeat against Liverpool, and plenty of fans are furious with the defensive deficiencies of Patrick van Aanholt.
The Eagles may feel unlucky to have come away from Selhurst Park with no points, having had a goal ruled out by VAR in the first half.
Liverpool came out firing after the break and took the lead through Sadio Mane, and the Reds added a second shortly after Wilfried Zaha had equalised.
The visitors’ second goal was exactly the kind of strike you just cannot allow when playing a top team, as the ball pin-balled around the box for several moments before Roberto Firmino fired home.
Many fans feel van Aanholt was to blame once again – the Dutchman has drawn criticism on plenty of occasions for sacrificing his defensive duties to attack, and he was caught out of position a couple of times in the second half.
The 29 year-old did make three tackles, per Whoscored, but that hasn’t stopped fans from slamming his display, as you can see in the Twitter reactions down below…
I’d rather field 10 men then play PVA #CPFC

If only PVA thumped it clear from the corner instead of that soft attempt of a clearance. Disappointing loss all things considered #CRYLIV

Van Aanholt will never cease to amaze me. Ever

Disgraceful defending and they let another goal in. What was van Aanholt thinking? #CRYLIV
