Fans on Twitter react to Palace defeat

Many Crystal Palace fans on Twitter were scathing towards manager Alan Pardew for a substitution they saw as unbalancing the team just before Manchester United’s late winner on Wednesday.

With the score at 1-1, and only a few minutes remaining, under-pressure Pardew sacrificed midfielder James McArthur for striker Frazier Campbell in an attempt to seize the initiative.

But moments later, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored and many Palace supporters blamed the late change.

However, Pardew did have some backing from fans, who either felt that McArthur was the natural player to be brought off or that his presence would not have prevented the United winner.
