A number of Crystal Palace supporters have been hailing Vicente Guaita after his last-gasp save prevented the Eagles from losing to Burnley.
Patrick Vieira’s side returned to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon following the final international break of the year.
Palace made the trip to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s Clarets, with a thrilling end-to-end contest finishing in a 3-3 draw at Turf Moor.
Who has been Palace's best summer signing?
It was 3-2 to Patrick Vieira’s side by half-time but Maxwel Cornet’s equaliser early in the second half ultimately earned the hosts a point.
It could have been even worse for Palace, however, with Guaita forced into making a big save to deny Chris Wood in the dying moments, with the Eagles’ official Twitter channel sharing footage of that heroic intervention from the 34-year-old along with the caption ‘Viva Vicente’.

It was a huge moment in the match and these Palace fans took to Twitter to show their love for Guaita, who had been culpable of costly errors in recent weeks such as his fateful kick-out against Brighton.
“Some people wanted him dropped???? Respect VG!“
“Have absolutely no idea why Vydra hasn’t put his foot through it. What a save though“
“that’s an unreal save“
“And some fans have been demanding he gets dropped“
“People calling for this man to be dropped… no idea“
