Andersen named your Man of the Match at Old Trafford
Joachim Andersen’s superb first-half strike helped Palace beat Manchester United at Old Trafford for the third time in five seasons – and you voted the Danish defender as your Man of the Match!
The Dane’s superb first-half strike from Ebere Eze’s delivery, married to a collective display of defensive resilience and counter-attacking intent, saw Palace provide the perfect response to midweek disappointment on the same ground.
Andersen was at the heart of the fantastic display, scoring the winner, making a match-high 10 clearances, winning two tackles and two aerial duels, and even setting up fellow centre-back Marc Guéhi with a superb cross early in the match.
Every member of the side contributed to a famous Palace victory on Saturday afternoon, but you awarded Andersen 68% of the vote, with goalkeeper Sam Johnstone (11.7%) and forward Jordan Ayew (5.2%) the next-closest contenders.
