All-round display wins Tomkins eToro Man of the Match

15 January 2021

It was a match packed with impressive performances as Crystal Palace earned a hard-fought point against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium – but you rewarded James Tomkins' all-round display by making him your eToro Man of the Match.

Marshalling the defence to a valuable clean sheet, Tomkins and co. provided a solid base upon which Palace could build, as they secured a fifth consecutive game unbeaten against the Gunners. It was a rear-guard performance that impressed manager Roy Hodgson.

Not only confident at the back, Tomkins also came closest to scoring when his header from Eberechi Eze’s free-kick cannoned off the crossbar in the first-half.

Tomkins finished ahead in the poll with 26.7% of the vote, but there was plenty of praise for the rest of the side. James McArthur's determined efforts in midfield saw him finish second with 19.2%, whilst Tyrick Mitchell's endeavour on the left-hand side placed him in third (12.5%).
