Crystal Palace beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0 on Tuesday night.
Crystal Palace are into the next round of the Carabao Cup after beating Championship side West Bromwich Albion 3-0 at The Hawthorns on Tuesday night.
Roy Hodgson's side suffered disappointment on Saturday as they could only draw 0-0 at home to Newcastle United, and a response was wanted even with a host of changes against West Brom.
Palace took an early lead through Andros Townsend, and the second goal took another 70 minutes arrive as Patrick van Aanholt made it 2-0 with less than quarter of an hour to play.
Townsend then added his second with a fine goal, handing Palace a 3-0 win and a route into the fourth round of the competition ahead of Monday's trip to Bournemouth.
The attention will quickly turn back to the Premier League and that trip to Bournemouth, and Palace fans are desperate to see midfielder Meyer make his first league start in that fixture.
The German was a major signing from Schalke this summer, but has barely been seen, playing just 64 minutes of Premier League action, and his only two starts have come in the cup.
After his display on Tuesday night, Palace fans raved about Meyer, suggesting that he was 'class' against West Brom and was so efficient in possession, adding that it's clear to see just how good he is whilst begging Hodgson to start him in the Premier League for the first time at Bournemouth.
Just got home, top performance from the boys. Max Meyer was the business and needs to start against Bournemouth. Special mention to Townsend for the goals and Wardy for playing well @ CB #CPFC— Alright, Alright, Alright (@HarlingJ) September 25, 2018
No #cpfc fan should underestimate that result tonight, amazing performance and a game we could have easily lost. Squad depth looks solid and players perfroming well. Meyer has to start. Buzzing for @andros_townsend amazing goals. Great team performance.— Alex Clark (@alexdclark87) September 25, 2018
Been to my first palace game of the season today... bit of a trip for it... my thoughts. Townsend what a couple of goals! The guy is a menace! AWB is England’s future! Didn’t put a foot wrong. Meyer is pure class! Guy looks like the ball is glued to his feet #Cpfc #GladAllOver— Baz (@TheSuperBario) September 25, 2018
Great performance tonight. Meyer, Punch and Kouyate bossed the midfield. Sorloth put in an excellent performance leading the line and two top goals from Andros. Guaita comfortable too. Everyone played well. A few done themselves no harm tonight. #cpfc— Daren (@cpdaren) September 25, 2018
What a win! Townsend and PVA class. Max Meyer is so good. Efficient and precise with his passing. So unlucky not to score. Superb team performance! #cpfc— Matt (@MattYoung82) September 25, 2018
Max Meyer has to start. Has to bloody start #cpfc— Dwayne Dibbley (@rogersworld74) September 25, 2018
The weight on every Meyer pass is perfect, really nice to watch, likes to be in the ball but moves it quickly and effectively, surely he starts Monday night? #CPFC— Jay (@jamusmaximus1) September 25, 2018
Cracking 1st half that, really showing the gulf in quality. If Meyer doesn't start on Monday there is something very wrong with this world #cpfc— Dan (@danofthesouth_) September 25, 2018
It's clear to see how good Meyer is. Has to start in the league!#CPFC— CPFC HQ (@CPFCHQ) September 25, 2018
