Townsend Wins Man of the Match Vote for Man City Heroics

24 December 2018

Andros Townsend has been voted as Man of the Match by Crystal Palace fans for his astonishing performance against Manchester City on Saturday as Palace ran out as 3-2 winners thanks in part to his sumptuous 30-yard volley.

The midfielder rifled home to grab the Eagles' second of the day and in doing so scored undoubtedly the game's best goal from the five that were netted in this belter of a match at the Etihad stadium.

Thanks to the thunderous effort and an all-round solid display, Townsend was dubbed Man of the Match with an astonishing 69% of votes from the celebrating Palace faithful. He beat defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka to the award but was a clear and deserving victor overall.

Following the game, he labelled the goal the 'best of his career' but said that the performance was "incredible from every single player on the pitch."
