Well done Palace! Not at all expected. So submissive against the Weed and Fulham yet stood up to and were as good a Man U.

Our team is totally unpredictable. (By me anyway)

 


My dad made me a Palace fan. Never forgiven him.

Well, I thought defensively Benteke was as good as anyone out there tonight. As usual he had hardly any service but he did hold up play a few times when he could as well as chasing back a few times. There’s no way Mateta can do this yet but that’s the way we play under Hodgson so he will need to be able to defend if selected otherwise Benteke will be ahead of him. Terrific point tonight and a good performance which I enjoyed more than the last two games :-)

A definite confidence booster and it seems as though they have recently decided to go back to basics and stick to what they’re good at.

I actually though Benteke played out his role well tonight, holding it up and feeding it off. He seems slightly more spirited at the moment.

Another few plusses for me were the zip in our game and how there always seemed to be options when looking for a pass

I thought Andros was superb. His work rate is incredible. Kouyate was immense also.

There are a few comments on Eze so far and I’d love to see him play more free-spirited and keen to simply get at them. He seems slightly hesitant as if to say ‘am I allowed to do this?’.

Really pleased to get a point that is a bonus in my eyes, a clean sheet again and all against the team in second place.

Well done Palace, well done Roy.

Perhaps United weren't that good because we put in a shift and a half and didn't allow them to be.

Eze is one of those players who it will not always work out for him but when it does it will win us games (Leeds, Sheffield Utd, Wolves are most immediate examples for me).

He’s what I’d describe as a ‘game changer’, didn’t quite do that tonight which can be noted but I’d be extremely reluctant to criticise him for it!

Luca looked better with McCarthy alongside. Made some decent passes which was good to see. More like Luca of old.

We started both halves well and that seemed to make Man U wary of pushing too many forward. We generally closed down the space in the midfield area where Fernandez and others like to work. Apart from that wobbly 10 minutes in the first half when Man U had their 3 chances, we weren't under much pressure.

Delighted with the point.

Pleased with the performance.

Shame we didn't have a bit more belief when we did go forward.

Good to see Jeff get a few minutes. Hope he'll get more time against Spurs.

Enjoyed that. Competed well with the team second in the league, get Wilf and Schlupp back and play like that we shouldn’t have too much to fear

Can’t help but think that it was there for the taking late on. 20 minutes of Mateta would have been good.

I have to agree he leaves a lot to be desired. Compare his performance to Ward's, no comparison!

He gets a lot of stick from Palace fans but as far as left backs go, we could do a lot, lot worse. There's a reason he's almost certainly leaving in the summer for a Champions League club & he won't be easy to replace. Good job we brought Mitchell through.

 


We're the Arthur over ere!

you only have the one ST, well in ST top trumps I have 2 so ya boo sucks, if you have three you win

All except Benteke and Eze whom you single out as not worthy of your hard earned approval.

You are of course right, so I shall withdraw

Yes saying ‘a special mention to all’ is clearly so negative, I’ve been a season ticket holder for over three decades, you ever been to a match?

Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace
