As is always the case after a big win, Twitter was a wonderful place to be in the moments immediately after Crystal Palace’s 2-0 triumph over West Brom yesterday afternoon.
Eagles fans everywhere were quick to bask in the glow of a morale boosting win over our former boss Tony Pulis, with the scoreline proving to be the perfect reverse of our meeting with them at the end of the last campaign.
Dominating the game from start to finish, Palace were good value for their win on a day when West Brom offered next to nothing from an attacking perspective. Whilst it did take us a while to get our noses in front through Yannick Bolasie’s header, there were never any serious fears of falling to a defeat against our former boss, leading the Palace faithful to heap praise on the squad for their efforts.
Described by many as our most complete Premier League performance to date, there was simply nothing to be downhearted about in yesterday’s display.
Below is a selection of the best tweets sent in reaction to the victory.

Cabaye smiled during his post match interview and I'm unashamed to say it felt wonderful.

To add to 5th point; It was rumoured rift was partially caused by Pulis refusal to take back Zaha. Imagine his thoughts today if true… 😂
