Andros Townsend Sends Twitter Into Meltdown With Wonder Goal Against Manchester City

Andros Townsend Has Scored A Goal Of The Season Contender
Andros Townsend Has Scored A Goal Of The Season Contender

Take a bow, son. Crystal Palace's Andros Townsend has scored an absolute 'thronker' during Crystal Palace's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

There didn't appear to be too much danger when City struggled to deal with a bit of a goalmouth scramble in their own area when they eventually cleared the ball. It looped out to Townsend who swung his left peg at it from a good 35 yards out...

What happened next was a joy to behold. Townsend made a perfect connection and the ball flew like a bullet into the top left-hand corner of Ederson's net. Cue delirium as Townsend wheeled away in delight, while the City players - and most of The Etihad - were left stunned by a scorcher.

Twitter immediately erupted and it was no surprise to see that Liverpool fans were delighted by the strike against their nearest title rivals...

 

The goal was immediately being touted as a goal of the season contender...

Blimey. @andros_townsend has just given @CPFC the lead at @ManCity with the most unbelievable volley. Goal of the season contender folks. See it on @BBCMOTD tonight. @GaryLineker

Andros Townsend has already got our Goal of the Season sewn up. In truth, it might well win the Premier League Goal of the Season too. Utterly bonkers. @HLTCO

That’s no wonder goal, Townsend knew exactly what he was doing... Take a bow son as you’ve just put the goal of the season in the back of the net @cpfccomedy

While some were claiming it was a lucky hit from Townsend, others were quick to heap praise on the winger...

The technique in that Townsend goal is insane @MannyOfficial

You can see from the image stills below just how special the goal was...
