“That’s unbelievable. I perceive completely if the goalkeeper is flying off his line, gaining one or two yards, however that’s, effectively…
“74 minutes in, they should be 2-Zero up, they’ve been much better. Manchester United have been nowhere close to them by way of sharpness, the form.
“However there is a component of excellent fortune about how Palace have gained their second aim.”
