Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to rave over Brandon Pierrick, after the forward made his Premier League debut in the 1-1 draw against Norwich.
The 18-year-old only recently signed his first professional contract with the Eagles at the beginning of December, and made his first senior appearance for the first-team on New Year’s Day with an eye-catching cameo against the Canaries.
As well as playing a part in the build-up to Connor Wickham’s equaliser with an incisive dribble and pass to Wilfried Zaha, Pierrick made two key passes against Daniel Farke’s men – no other Palace player managed to make more – despite playing just eight minutes of the match at Carrow Road.
The Brixton-born attacker attempted two crosses and also made an interception on his first Premier League appearance, doing enough in just eight minutes to make a name for himself and also have these Palace fans on Twitter drooling over his brief cameo in Norfolk on Wednesday evening.

Tom Samuel said that he thinks the south Londoners have “a future star in the making” and added that the teenager also didn’t look out of place – it’s hard to disagree given how brave and comfortable Pierrick looked on the ball.
Brandon Pierrick appreciation tweet. I know, I know, I’m a bit previous. But he was effective immediately, and he’s clearly a baller.

Elsewhere, this supporter said that the Palace No.40 was immediately effective against Norwich, and stated that the youngster is “clearly a baller” – the fan also went on to say that Pierrick has surely earned himself 90 minutes against Derby in the FA Cup on Sunday.
