While Wilfried Zaha managed to salvage a point for Crystal Palace in their meeting with bitter rivals Brighton and Hove Albion last night, many fans online were far from happy with the treatment of another Eagles attacker.
Is it time Crystal Palace looked for a more progressive manager?
Indeed, despite the fact that Roy Hodgson saw his side struggle to create much prior to a late stunner from the club’s talisman, the former England manager’s decision to overlook summer loan signing Victor Camarasa had fans on social media confused.
Since joining from Real Betis over the course of the summer, the 25-year-old has played in just five minutes of Premier League football so far for Palace, which seems rather odd considering he (per WhoScored) averaged 1.6 key passes per game for a struggling Cardiff side last term, more than anyone in Hodgson’s squad this time around.
In fact, no one outside of Martin Kelly made more than one during last night’s game, making his constant absence seem really rather strange.
With that in mind, here’s a look at what supporters were saying.
No creativeness from Palace and Camarasa is sat on the bench, makes me sick with the talent we know he has

It’s the 16th of December, Benteke is finished. Give Camarasa 45 minutes to prove he is the player we all think he is before he ups and leaves in 2 weeks time.

Any other gaffer starts Camarasa and Meyer

I would move Kouyate back, take Jairo off, and bring in Meyer or Camarasa. I expect to see Jairo off for Woods.

How do Meyer and Camarasa not get in this team. Give Roy the benefit of the doubt but still https://t.co/8Mnwj2Y9RC
