Crystal Palace were beaten 2-0 by Manchester United yesterday evening.
Crystal Palace supporters were delighted to see Julian Speroni make his return against Manchester United at Old Trafford yesterday evening.
Speroni started for the first time in almost a year against United, and although he was unable to stop his side from falling to a 2-0 defeat, the Argentine still managed to impress.
Speroni produced a string of fine saves to keep the Red Devils at bay, and Eagles supporters were very impressed by his showing.
Palace fans are now urging Alan Pardew to keep faith in the experienced stopper for the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend.
Palace are due to face Watford at Wembley, and it is expected that Wayne Hennessey will be given his place between the sticks back.
However, Palace fans seem united in the belief that Speroni should still be their number one, and they have suggested that Pardew should be looking to utilise him far more regularly.
Palace were set up for Sunday. Man United didn't look special. Old Trafford was a library. Sako is fat. Speroni is number 1. #CPFC— Will Britton (@CpfcWill) April 21, 2016
Reflecting on the game, we were beaten my an OG and a superb stroke. Speroni was great in goal. Offered little going forward... #CPFC— TK (@TDKay19) April 20, 2016
Great to see Julian Speroni start and play well for @CPFC tonight. Respect for a top goalkeeper, ultimate pro and top man with the fans too— Adam McEvoy (@Adam_EPFA) April 20, 2016
Speroni was mustard tonight, it's frustrating he hasn't been given a chance this season.. can't help but think Pards has been stubborn #cpfc— Deej (@DJ_Westlake) April 20, 2016
Well done to Julian Speroni. Great saves and definitely my Man of the Match! #CPFC— Kathy Clark (@kjc2cats) April 20, 2016
As much as we want him to, surely Pards won't start with Speroni on Sunday after having him as 3rd choice all season. #cpfc— Nick (@supernwa) April 20, 2016
Imagine how many more points we would have had this season with Speroni in goal. #CPFC— CPFC HERTS (@CPFCHERTS) April 20, 2016
There's few things I love as much in this world as Julian Speroni Fantastic performance and totally deserves to regain the #1 spot #CPFC— George Mann (@George_Persona) April 20, 2016
Lets forget tonight. Onto Wembley, massive game. Lets hope we go for it from the start!! Speroni clearly our no.1 & should start 100%! #cpfc— Tom (@taldous123) April 20, 2016
Speroni just has to start Sunday...he deserves to represent Palace at Wembley more than anyone in that squad #cpfc— EatingTheBurger (@EatingTheBurger) April 20, 2016
Congratulations Speroni on a brilliant display. Some top notch saves in that game. Deserves a start on Sunday. #CPFC— Nicholas Georghiou (@nlg070301) April 20, 2016
What have we leanet. Speroni is still No1, McArthur isn't fit for sun, Ade can't play on his own, sako is a rusty tank. #cpfc— Mark Andrews (@WeDoMediaMark) April 20, 2016
Speroni is now just two appearances away from breaking John Jackson’s record of playing the most games for Palace as a goalkeeper.
