Well, Aston Villa looked dead and buried given we couldn’t capitalise on our better games since the restart of the Premier League, but against Crystal Palace the stars seemed to align for us.
Having seen a favour from VAR, Palace’s opening goal was scrubbed out and we slowly began turning on some style and a Trezeguet brace gave us a very well deserved victory on the day to keep slim hopes of survival alive.
Too little, too late, who knows but it brightened up the weekend for sure.
Statistics website Whoscored can often come up with a Man of the Match that few fans can agree with, but they got it spot on this time for me, awarding Trez their star man score of 8.47.
Trez Was Nailed On Wasn't He?
Yes, Best Showing Yet
Two Goals Don't Make A Performance
Completing the top five best performers on the day in their system were Pepe Reina (7.76), Conor Hourihane (7.69), John McGinn (7.60) and Douglas Luiz (7.48).
Extra mentions for Ahmed Elmohamady and Jack Grealish who also scored above 7.
Onto Everton – can we gag the Fat Lady?
