Crystal Palace fans love Jairo Riedewald’s display against Arsenal on Saturday

It is hard to think what Roy Hodgson will make of Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw at home against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Eagles were by far second-best before the break, managing just one shot at goal and amassing a rather poor 33% possession.

If the Gunners had kept up their dominance for 90 minutes, the former England manager could’ve had no complaints about losing the match, but given that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was set off with half of the second period left – at that point, Palace were drawing 1-1 after Jordan Ayew had cancelled out the Gabon international’s opener – he may feel his men could have come away with maximum points.

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?

In the end, though, the spoils were shared. One of Palace’s best players was arguably Jairo Riedewald, who managed four clearances, two interceptions and three tackles during a dominating defensive display.

The supporters were delighted with his performance on the day.

From a defensive point of view, he did nothing wrong. Considering he is either a centre-back or defensive midfielder by trade, he did very well by filling in on the left of the back four.

Such was the nature of his showing, many fans were adamant that he was the best player on the pitch.

High praise indeed. Both himself, the fans and his manager will be hoping that he can continue this form moving forward.

Does Jairo Riedewald have a future at Crystal Palace?





Although this performance came at left-back, some supporters still want to see him in the middle of the park.

When Patrick van Aanholt returns from injury, he will likely take the former Ajax man’s place, so the supporters may just get their wish of seeing him further forward.

Elsewhere, Palace fans react as it emerges Palace are ready to listen to offers for one man.
