Exactly why we bought him. Ronaldo-esque cut back and a great finish similar to a couple of goals he scored for England.

Love his directness and pace. He is a different kind of 'exciting' compared to Bolasie but this is the kind that feels more purposeful.

Much more direct and you get the feeling his shots will test their keeper more than Bolasies ever would. Great signing.

Excellent set piece delivery. So important with the aerial threat we carry.

He's so fast, and his end product is incredible. In the first half he did a quality cross when he was running as fast as he can and stretching for the ball.

Not as flashy as Bolasie but much more clever footballer and more polished, he isnt just a winger, he can interplay very well.

Good player and great he got his first goal - pity about the negative comments about Yannick he helped us to the position we are in now ie attracting pjayers like Benteke and Townsend

Was absolutely sublime today, and even better in his final 10 minutes as he grew with even more confidence. I really believe he can be our star player over the next couple of years, and unbelievable to think he's only 24.

It might sound biased and bitter but give me Townsend over Bolasie any day of the week, a proper footballer with much better technical ability.

Agree, thought fro the start he would turn out to be our shrewdest acquisition, fabulous today

Played superbly and is a lovely counterpoint to Zaha on the other side. Great to see such balance on either foot, too.

I do find it weird how he and Zaha are treated so differently by fans and the media, though.

Zaha had a decent enough start to the season, then plays superbly, scoring and assisting in a win... barely acknowledged, even dug out by Shearer on MOTD and Winter in The Times. No England chat.

Townsend has a middling, at best, start to the season, then plays superbly, scoring and assisting in a win... gushing praise, loads of comments about how he's a must for England.

Townsend never seems to get questioned about his output like Zaha does, when their stats are in reality rather similar. That's not even getting on to issues of who is the better player, overall contributions etc.

I'm not trying to diminish Townsend or anything like that - I really like him, and I'd have both he and Zaha in the England squad, but I just don't get why his face seems to fit for everyone, and Zaha's doesn't. Feel like the press really misread Zaha, and have no idea about what he's really like.

Its not just his goal.....watch James MacArthurs goal and see the work effort Townsend puts in to create space he takes out two players just long enough.

He is not that fast. More busy. Good game today.

Technically good, seems to have a footballing brain. Eye for goal and excellent set pieces. What's not to like.

Yep he ran from 25 yards odd away around the back, and took both defenders away from JM, it was great support/team play

A superb buy. I become more impressed every time I see him and today will have been a huge boost for his confidence.

Townsend was incredible today. If Zaha had played as well as Townsend did today, we'd never hear the end of it.

Townsend is a very smart,clever and hard working player.I would say that the difference between himself and Bolasie is that Townsend has a bigger awareness of what he needs to do next.Bolasie,despite being possibly more exciting to watch,has far less actual footballing ability than Townsend.Bolasie disappeared far too often during games,Townsend played like a demon today.Wonderful to watch.

Townsend's free kick ability makes use of all the fouls and corners we tend to get. I feel in the past, teams would just foul Wilf or Yala because they didn't fear the free kick so much. I think opponents have to reconsider that strategy now because Townsend was clinical today.

This comment like others on here epitomises the over reaction to good or poor performances. Townsend was good to day. Excellent goal....but he was notbexceptional. He is incapable of controlling a ball that is off the ground. Well based on today that is. Wilf has better teqnique and is getting better w and better.
