Crystal Palace fans react on Twitter to Jason Puncheon’s performance v Everton

Crystal Palace Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace secured a 1-1 away draw with Everton on Monday.

Crystal Palace secured a surprising 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park, after being on the back foot for the entire game.

Romeu Lukau, Gerard Deulofeu and Ross Barkley tore the Eagles’ back-line apart, but they were saved by the woodwork, the goalkeeping of Wayne Hennessey, and some impressive last-ditch tackles.

However, it was Palace who took the lead, when Scott Dann scored from a header after a corner from Jason Puncheon.

Romelu Lukaku netted the equaliser five minutes later, tying the game after hitting the woodwork twice.

Palace did well to hold on for the point, and the result will go down as an impressive one of the Eagles given the progression of the game.

There were some impressive performances by certain Palace players throughout the tie, with Connor Wickham, Mile Jedinak, Damien Delaney and Dann himself all excelling, although one player has come under some criticism.

Although he registered the assist for Dann’s goal, Puncheon appears to be extremely out of form right now, and is struggling in open play.

Alan Pardew is sticking by him regardless of his performance levels, sometimes to the detriment of the Palace performances.

Following the game, Palace fans took to Twitter to react to the result, with many discussing whether Puncheon should be benched after a series of disappointing performances.
