Crystal Palace overcame the in-form Burnley by a 3-1 scoreline at Turf Moor on Saturday. A Phil Bardsley own goal and strikes for Michy Batshuayi and Wilfried Zaha secured the points for the Eagles, meanwhile Ashley Barnes could only notch a late consolation for the hosts.
The south London club were extremely deserving of their victory and a number of Roy Hodgson’s men turned in excellent performances. Amongst those to shine was Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The 21-year-old right-back has been a revelation at Selhurst Park this season and produced another display of the highest quality against the Clarets this weekend.
As well as excelling defensively, the England under-21 international was also threatening going forward. As a reward for his endeavours he registered a smart assist for Batshuayi’s goal.
Wan-Bissaka is certainly a favourite amongst the Palace faithful, and after the game many fans took to Twitter to sing the young defender’s praises…
Mental to think that people genuinely believe TAA is a better player than AWB.

Can’t express how nice it was to have Wan-Bissaka back in the team today. Absolutely sensational, defensively & going forward. Also, can we talk about Scott Dann? Thought he rolled back the years today. #CPFC

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is 3 years younger than me yet I still view him as a father figure.
We finally have a striker who can score a goal from time to time.
I love Crystal Palace Football Club.#CPFC

Wan-Bissaka stepping on what Liverpool fans thought Alexander-Arnold had dibs on. #CPFC
