Crystal Palace fans praise James McArthur

Crystal Palace took a big step towards returning to the Premier League’s top half on Saturday.

The Eagles hosted Newcastle United at Selhurst Park, and won 1-0 thanks to a fantastic free-kick from Netherlands international Patrick van Aanholt. Their first victory in eight games means they are now nine points clear of the relegation zone in 13th place, and only three points away from getting back into the top ten.

Did he really play for us?! No Palace fan has managed to name all of these obscure Eagles signings….

Who is this obscure former Palace player?

Several of Roy Hodgson’s men put in performances that were worth celebrating, and James McArthur is one of his players who stood out – at least according to the supporters. Many were over the moon with the showing he put in, and they took to Twitter to share their delight.

It was surprising that so many fans thought he had a fantastic day at the office – he was dribbled past five times and gave away three fouls. Clearly, stats don’t tell the whole story.

Others, meanwhile, were quick to point out how underrated he is.

The fans obviously think he is deserving of far more praise than he currently gets. But if he plays like this on a regular basis, supporters will likely be quick to share their adulation far more often.
