Crystal Palace are moving along nicely under Roy Hodgson at the moment.
After a difficult summer, which saw few new arrivals and was dominated by speculation of star player Wilfried Zaha potentially leaving the club, the Eagles have started the campaign in decent form, picking up 11 points from their first seven games. In fact, they have lost on just two occasions so far.
Their latest victory came against Norwich on Saturday, with goals scored by Luka Milivojevic from the penalty spot and Andros Townsend late on. The latter came on from the bench against the Canaries and took his chance well, and it sees him get his goal tally for the season up and running. He will now be hoping to start the side’s next match away at West Ham.
The Palace fans were delighted with the 28-year-old’s performance at Selhurst Park, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Townsend with exactly the response I was hoping for from him. Really poor start to the campaign, hopefully he’s back now.

Slightly more convincing second half, though mostly due to Norwich showing signs of fatigue. The moment Townsend came on, Palace’s offensive play immediately improved

Townsend grabbed his chance (even without the goal).
Schlupp deserved his place, but had a bad day at the office.
Kouyate’s best performance yet?
Kelly is fantastic to have. Cahill so skilful for a CB.
Indictment of Benteke he wasn’t even called upon.
