Crystal Palace fans react on Twitter to Cabaye's performance against Manchester City

Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace - 23/02/2014

Crystal Palace lost 1-0 to Manchester City, but Yohan Cabaye impressed.

Crystal Palace slipped to an unlucky 1-0 defeat to Premier League leaders Manchester City at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

Kelechi Iheanacho's dramatic injury time winner - the first professional goal of his career - handed City all three points in a close game.

Alan Pardew's Palace pushed City all the way, and will feel somewhat aggrieved having seen a penalty appeal turned down in the first half, with Yohan Cabaye being tripped in front of goal.

He may not have won that penalty, but French international midfielder Cabaye once again produced a superb display for Palace in this loss.

The former Newcastle star was Pardew's marquee signing of the summer, and he has quickly become a firm fan favourite at Selhurst Park.

After the game, Palace fans took to Twitter in order to praise Cabaye's performance, with many still in awe that he even plays for the club, given how good he is.

Pardew's Palace side will be built around Cabaye, and if he continues to drive the team forward like he did against City, Palace fans will be dreaming of European qualification.

Here are some of the reactions from Palace fans on Twitter following Cabaye's performance against Manchester City...
