Some Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to react as Andros Townsend hit back at the club’s official account after a tweet was posted of an incident from the 2-1 over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The clip shows Wilfried Zaha twisting Ashley Young inside out on a few occasions, in which the United man slips due to the Ivorian’s skill – he does, however, end up blocking the cross.
Palace’s official account posted a tweet captioned ‘Wilf had him dancing’ in what seemed like a harmless post, but Townsend hit back by defending Young and giving him credit for eventually blocking the cross after what happened.
Naturally, some Palace fans reacted to this. A few supporters were quick to point out Young’s dive against them from a game back in 2014 at Old Trafford, whilst another simply thought Townsend’s tweet was a ‘bit weird’.
Let’s take a look at what some of the Eagles fans on Twitter thought of Townsend’s tweet…
Well played Wilf!!@andros_townsend is taking this far to seriously. This is exactly what fans pay to see following a 220 mile and a 5hr drive north and it’s rare that Palace would ever have the chance to see this against Man United. Pipe down #cpfc

Andros, you know the history of Young? And his blatant diving v CPFC?

Respecting a player that throws himself to the floor at every chance, including a time it got a Palace player sent off? Nah you are alright Andros.
