Crystal Palace supporters react on Twitter to Bamford's performance against Manchester City

Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford started in Crystal Palace's 5-1 defeat to Manchester City in the League Cup.

Patrick Bamford failed to impress Crystal Palace supporters with his performance in the Capital One Cup against Manchester City.

Bamford has had limited chances with the Eagles so far this season, but he was handed a start against City on Wednesday evening.

In the contest, the Chelsea loanee failed to get involved, with his side falling to a heavy 5-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Bamford had arguably Palace’s best chance of the match, when Wilfried Zaha set him up for a close-range shot, but he hesitated and the attempt was blocked.

It was the story of Bamford’s night, with nothing going his way in the contest.

It leaves his chances of starting at the weekend looking slim, despite Palace’s struggles for a striker this season.

The Eagles have failed to find a potent goalscorer throughout the campaign so far, but Palace fans are not convinced that Bamford is the answer.

Eagles supporters have slated the performance of the young striker on social media site Twitter, with many suggesting that it was pointless having him on the field. Here is the best reaction.
