A lot of Crystal Palace fans are raving over highlights posted by the club on Twitter which show the great victory back in May 2017 in the Premier League against Hull City.
It was a big game at the back end of the 2016/17 campaign for both sides as Hull were in the bottom three and needed not to lose to take the relegation battle to the last day of the season, whilst the Eagles could mathematically confirm their safety in the top flight, via BBC Sport.
Palace secured safety emphatically as they thrashed the Tigers 4-0 to cap off a great first season in management at the club for Sam Allardyce. Wilfried Zaha set the wheels in the motion early on as he scored in the third minute, and the away side couldn’t recover from the early blow as further goals came from Christian Benteke, Luka Milivojevic and Patrick Van Aanholt.
It was a great day in the sun for fans of the South London club, and a historic one as they continued their record of staying in the top flight for their longest period, via Premier League.
Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:
