The midfielder scored a stunning goal as Palace romped to victory.
Crystal Palace romped to a 4-0 victory over SuperSport United in South Africa yesterday, with goals from Mile Jedinak, Lee Chung-yong, Jordon Mutch and Frazier Campbell doing the trick.
It was however the performance of central midfielder Mutch which truly caught the eye.
The former QPR man arrived at Palace for a fee reported to be in the region of £4.75 million by Sky Sports.
The move was something of a shock. He had struggled for form and fitness at his previous employers and he went on to play just seven Premier League games for Palace last season.
Fitness however was a major concern and he is now seemingly back to near his best condition. His performance yesterday certainly looked to prove that.
He was sensational throughout the game and his goal was superb. He raced clear of the SuperSport defence, before calmly taking on two more defenders and lifting the ball over the goalkeepers head for 3-0.
It was the type of goal that first had him catching the eye during his time at Birmingham City.
It is hard to remember that Mutch is just 23-years-old and still has plenty to offer.
Palace fans are clearly excited to see what he can offer this campaign…
I really don't understand the dislike for Mutch. He's absolutely class, just been unlucky with injuries. I expect him to play a lot #cpfc— Scott Whittaker (@ScottAWhittaker) July 24, 2015
I said about Jordan Mutch, I liked him for ages before Cardiff days aswell. Tidy little player. #cpfc— Sarcastic Cunt. (@RickyFenn) July 24, 2015
I reckon Jordon has Mutch more to offer this season. #cpfc— Jim Daly (@jimdalycomedy) July 24, 2015
Apparently Mutch went twisted up 4 players, nutmeged the IT guy fixing the stream, before chipping the goalie. #cpfc— Famous CPFC (@FamousCPFC) July 24, 2015
Jordon Mutch is going to be class this year. Now hes shaken off the farcical QPR fitness regime his ability will shine through for us. #cpfc— Ryan Wallis (@RyWalCP) July 24, 2015
Jordon Mutch and Jason Puncheon have been very good so far. Fear for SuperSport if Cabaye comes on. #CPFC— Samuel Jordan (@samuelpjordan) July 24, 2015
Pardew will hav very tough time picking midfield for Norwich, having watched yesterday's game Jedinak & Mutch looked very impressive #cpfc— Richard Harvey (@richard1198) July 25, 2015
That goal by Mutch wasn't too shabby. He's looking good this pre season. #cpfc— Alex White (@awhitey96) July 25, 2015
