Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react to Wayne Hennessey’s outstanding performance against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.
The 6′ 6″ Welshman managed to keep a clean sheet for the Eagles as they picked up their first point at Old Trafford since 1989, on a day where they had some great chances to take all three back with them to south London.
Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
At 31-years-old, Hennessey is just starting to impress in a Palace shirt having previously failed to convince since arriving from Wolves back in 2014. He has often been at fault for a number of goals with his poor decision making and inability to command his box and organise his defence, but this season, he has arguably been one of Roy Hodgson’s best performers.
The Wales international has now kept four clean sheets in 13 Premier League games this season, and has rightfully earned the praise of a number of fans who used to be his biggest critics…
I've spoken about him a lot already this season but how good is Wayne Hennessey now? Seriously turning into a great Premier League goalkeeper. Our defence has been the only saving grace this season. #CPFC

Proud of the lads this afternoon, nerve wrecking at times, had the better chances to score, credit to Wayne Hennessey for a decent clean sheet, Lee Mason & his team were slighty disrespectful towards us imo
Heading back to London 🤙 #cpfc

Wayne Hennessey is the greatest goalie alive and I’ve never said a word otherwise.
