Heroic performance scoops game-saving Eagle eToro Man of the Match

14 September 2020

Vicente Guaita scooped Crystal Palace's eToro Man of the Match award for his game-saving heroics against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Spanish goalkeeper pulled off another set of characteristically spectacular saves to guard Palace's 1-0 victory, being forced into action several times and keeping a well deserved clean sheet.

Fans chose Guaita as their Man of the Match in a landslide decision, with 48.6% of you selecting the No.31. He beat Cheikhou Kouyaté (17.6%) and goalscorer Wilfried Zaha (13.8%) to the award.

The game also saw recent signing Eberechi Eze make his Palace debut and Michy Batshuayi return to the squad for his second spell in south London.
