Crystal Palace departed Old Trafford with a 0-0 draw on Saturday, in large part due to an impressive defensive performance from Roy Hodgson’s men.
Leading the way at the back was goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, whose impressive performance showed that the Welshman is one of the most underrated players in the Premier League.
Far from featuring in conversations surrounding the division’s top goalkeepers, Hennessey’s skills often fly under the radar — Palace even brought in Vicente Guaita to challenge for the first choice spot this summer.
Yet Hennessey responded brilliantly to the renewed competition and has been consistently excellent this campaign.
Against Manchester United, the Eagles goalkeeper denied Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial superbly in the first half, pulling off a double save to keep the scores level.
And in the closing stages of the match, Hennessey dove well to push away Romelu Lukaku’s bullet header that was destined for the far corner.
In all, Hennessey played a vital role in stymying the Red Devils attack and granting Palace a priceless point in their bid for survival.
With another impressive shot-stopping performance under his belt, Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey continued his quite revival for the Eagles between the sticks.
