Crystal Palace played their part in an enthralling game against Hull City as the two drew 3-3.
Crystal Palace battled to a hard fought draw against Hull City as the two sides shared the points in a six-goal thriller. While the neutral was left thoroughly entertained by the game, both sets of fans would have been bitterly disappointed to have missed out on taking a vital three points from the other.
The draw leaves Alan Pardew's side in 15th place with 15 points, three points clear of West Ham United in 18th. While they continue their time out of the relegation zone, the fans are getting increasingly frustrated with their side as they are conceding so many goals.
Palace have conceded 29 goals this term and while they have scored 27 times, which is the most outside of the top four teams, it is simply not good enough as if they were more sound in defence their free flowing scoring would see them far further away from the relegation zone.
On the day, Palace saw Christian Benteke continue his fine goal scoring run from the penalty spot, before Wilfired Zaha scored a great solo goal which lit the game up. Substitute Fraizer Campbell then netted a late equaliser as Palace took a point from the game.
While the fans were left hugely disappointed by the result, they were left in awe of the performance from their winger Zaha.
His solo goal was superb and he was a constant threat on the wing with his crossing, speed and ability to cut in causing Hull no end of problems.
While Palace themselves have a lot of problems of late, their man on the wing is not one of them, and the fans reacted to his performance in jubilant style:
After 19 games if on 16-18 pts- & Wilf goes to AFCON what makes Parish think Pardew can make a complete u-turn in form for the next 19 #cpfc— Jason Baster (@BasterJason) 11 December 2016
