Following Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Sunday, fans of Spurs have been heaping praise on Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita for his performance in the fixture.
Despite facing six shots on target in the match, Guaita pulled off several ‘stunning saves‘ to ensure that his side did not leave the game empty-handed against Spurs, with fans ranking the Spaniard as the Man of the Match.
And, despite the fact the goalkeeper was one of the primary reasons as to why Spurs did not take maximum points from the fixture, many took to Twitter to praise the £3.6 million-rated 33-year-old.
Do you think Guaita was the Man of the Match against Spurs?
So, what exactly were the Tottenham fans saying about Vicente Guaita’s performance?

Not sure about that. Spurs could have scored 4 or 5 today if not for Guaita playing out of his mind.

If Guaita doesn’t play like prime Neuer against Liverpool then he has blood on his hands

Missed opportunity. Guaita had a masterclass but we get too defensive in the second half which cost us. https://t.co/Qswu0VBYca
