He looks nimble with his feet and got a good head to one but was largely absent beside that. Looking forward to him playing as a second as has been mentioned.

It's all very well saying he didn't get the service he needs, but (IMO) he should have been looking to run into the channels behind the full backs more, he stayed too central with no way through for Meyer etc to get the ball to him.

There is not a cat in hell chance we will play this formation in the PL, our midfield would just get overrun. To play that formation you need both strikers to work really hard but also have the football nous to drop back when needed. Benteke maybe good at defending corners but otherwise he just can't do this, and I'm not convinced it's Batshuayi's strength either.

The 2nd forward in a 442 type formation would be zaha not batshuyi for the reasons a bove by billyrhino and others otherwise the midfield will get outnumbered
Batshuyi will hopefully play better alongside zaha but he will need to contribute more earlier in games when the play is still congested

He was very, very poor. Doncaster fans were laughing at how bad he was on the walk to the car.

I know target man isn't necessarily his role, but perhaps having a go at jumping rather than pay no attention to the ball might be a start.

Batsman had very poor service all game, but the one decent through ball he did get his touch was dreadful. On a side note, apart from maybe hoping he would hold the ball up a bit more, why bring Bentekers on and then have no wide players left to cross the ball?

Game was won, the attack wasn't making the ball stick

I’m not knocking him ( early days) but Sako up front as a starter arguably offers more with him coming on later

He is not a target man, in fact he is shit at it as proved yesterday. Why oh why do we bring in forwards and then play them in their worse possible positions? Roy should have started or finished with Benteke alongside either Batshuayi or Ayew.

I guess we don't know what Roy has instructed him to do.

First full start for Palace, new team, different formations, ring rusty. I'd still start him away at Leicester and see how he and Zaha get on together. Plenty to work on this week, admittedly, but still positive to have him at the club.

He is clearly a half decent player, but I fear we have signed another striker, severely lacking in confidence, in front of goal. For that chance, he made a well time run to create the space, but then made a complete horlicks of things. Worrying.

Agreed , looks lost and did nothing against an average div 1 side . Even their 9 managed to get a few shots away and make a nuisance of himself

Let's hope we give him a run in the team now for some consistency and not chop and change straight away.
