Goal of the Season contender wins Eze eToro Man of the Match

4 January 2021

Crystal Palace’s victory over Sheffield United was one of many good performances – but there was one player that you picked out above them all.

Eberechi Eze’s stunning solo effort at the end of the first-half was a goal that will live long in the memory, and you showed your appreciation for the strike by voting Eze your eToro Man of the Match.

Eze came on for the injured Jeff Schlupp in the first-half, and made an immediate impact. Picking up the ball in the Palace half, he rounded one defender and then the next to advance on the Sheffield United goal. As he approached the penalty area, he sent a nonchalant finish into the bottom corner to all but secure the points for the Eagles.

It was only two days into the new year, but Eze's effort will surely be one of the goals of 2021, and saw him net 39% of the votes for Man of the Match. James McArthur's return to the side was welcomed, with the midfielder coming second (22.8%). Andros Townsend's constant endeavour on the wing saw him take third place (10.2%).
