Max Meyer made his first Premier League appearance for Palace on Monday night, coming on as a late substitute in the 83rd minute at Selhurst Park against Liverpool.
Tongues were wagging on the terraces as the German midfielder's deft touches in a cameo appearance suggested that his transition to the Premier League will be seamless.
Indeed, manager Roy Hodgson felt that Meyer was impeded in the box by Reds defener Virgil Van Dijk in the dying minutes, which could have led to his first Palace goal or a penalty when the score was just 0-1. But the man in the middle Michael Oliver did not see anything untoward, and Meyer's first goal in red and blue will have to wait.
Meyer is settling into life in south London since his arrival three weeks ago, and the Palace TV cameras followed his impact on Thursday's training session in Beckenham as the Eagles prepare for the trip to Watford on Sunday.
