Crystal Palace picked up both their first goals and points at home of the season as they held in-form Arsenal to a draw at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
While the officials where perhaps the stars of the show on Sunday, Palace’s young right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka had another impressive outing as he was awarded an 8/10 match rating by Sky Sports, the joint most on the pitch along with man of the match Wilfried Zaha.
The academy graduate has been the standout performer in an Eagles side that has struggled again at the start of the season, and has more or less always nullified his direct opponent on the pitch, including the Gunners’ Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
During Sunday’s clash the 20-year-old completed the most dribbles (5), the most interceptions (4) and won the joint most tackles (6) according to Squawka Football, and Palace fans are loving his contributions.
Here’s how they reacted to the starlet’s numbers versus Arsenal.
Please keep these wonderful stats ?. Hopefully only Palace fans takes any notice and we’ll have him for many more seasons to come ???
