Loads of Crystal Palace fans have been giving their verdict on Saturday’s incredible result at Manchester City, and they’re full of praise for the ever-entertaining Mamadou Sakho.
Whether he’s putting in world class displays, tripping over his own feet or clattering into opposition strikers for fun, there is never a dull moment with Sakho.
The French international cost Crystal Palace a whopping £26m last summer, and until now has only really shown glimpses of the ability that allowed him to rack up over 200 league appearances combined for PSG and Liverpool.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below...
However, if he can start consistently putting in performances like he did at the Etihad on Saturday, then there certainly won’t be any questions about his price tag.
When Luka Milivojevic put Roy Hodgson’s side 3-1 up just after half time, the hosts prepared a 40-minute onslaught, but the organisation and leadership of both Sakho and James Tomkins meant the result never really looked in much doubt.
The former PSG captain made one tackle, two interceptions and eight clearances, and was absolutely dominant in the air when Pep Guardiola’s side reverted to lumping cross into the box.

It turned into Crosschester City in that second half and you have to say Sakho and Tomkins stood up to it like absolute titans.
Brilliant from the #cpfc CB pair.
