Norwich robbed by shocking decison: How Twitter reacted to Cameron Jerome's disallowed goal

Norwich City

Twitter reacted in disgust as Norwich's Cameron Jerome had an early contender for Goal of the Season chalked off versus Crystal Palace.

Norwich City slipped to an opening day 3-1 Premier League defeat in a game marred by a controversial disallowed second half ‘goal’ by Cameron Jerome at Carrow Road.

At 2-1, Cameron Jerome's overhead kick, which would have drawn Norwich level, was disallowed for high boot, despite looking like a perfectly good goal.

The hosts looked to have completed an improbable comeback after Wilfried Zaha and Damien Delaney had put the Eagles in front until Nathan Redmond reduced the deficit to just a single goal.

However, match-day referee Simon Hooper adjudged the Norwich frontman's finish constituted dangerous play for a high boot and he proceed by chalking off the Englishman's strike. 

Palace then went on to score a third through summer signing Yohan Cabaye as the Frenchman placed a 10-yard-finish past John Ruddy, creating a scoreline that undoubtedly flattered the visitors. 

Understandably, a Twitter uproar ensued as Hooper prevented what many described as an early contender for goal of the season.
