Andros Townsend’s miss against Manchester City will make you weep

The Crystal Palace man could have given his side a memorable win over Prem giants City, instead the lady sitting in row Z could be taking home a match ball

This was your moment Andros Townsend.

You could have scored a simple goal to give Crystal Palace a huge win against Manchester City and end their unbeaten Premier League season.

Instead Palace had to settle for a draw after Luka Milivojevic was denied from the penalty spot by Ederson.

But Townsend will be hoping no one remembers his catastrophic miss after their New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Sorry Andros they will.

He has pace and some trickery but there have always been questions over the left footer’s end product.

Townsend’s miss of the season serves to further highlight the inadequacies in his game.

Seriously, Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace could have been the first team to be City this season.

Crystal Palace, who didn’t have a point until the sixth game of the season.

We’re sure Townsend will not have been watching Match of the Day last night.

Wilfried Zaha burst down the right wing and sent a low ball into the box.

It passed through the six yard box with no one getting a touch and arrived at the feet of Townsend completely free with the goal gaping.

All he had to do was slot the ball home.

Instead whoever was sitting in row Z at Selhurst Park suddenly saw the ball flying directly towards them.

Pep will be thanking his lucky stars.
