Kyle Walker-Peters has gifted Crystal Palace a two goal advantage in the FA Cup fourth round tie against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Spurs left-back followed the ball in the air and when he jumped, he brought his arm to the air and it made contact with the ball in the penalty area which was an absolutely foolish decision.
Spurs have been all at sea in the first half and could easily be 4-0 down if it were not for the heroics of Paulo Gazzaniga in goal.
Earlier, Wickham had given the home side the lead after some poor defending from Davinson Sanchez.
Some fans have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration at Walker-Peters’ silly error.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side face an uphill task if they are to keep alive any hopes of winning some silverware this season.
As of the 37th minute, Spurs had not registered a single shot on target. Nkoudou had a perfect chance to score a moment later but fluffed his lines.
KWP is worth a mistake a game. Unfortunately those mistakes always lead to goals. #COYS

I really like KWP but I have absolutely no idea what he was doing there. Crazy

Gotta feel for KWP, barely gets a game and then has to play out of position to accommodate the useless Trippier
