Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on social media to Paulo Gazzaniga’s performance against Crystal Palace.
The former Southampton keeper was making his debut for Spurs after injuries to Hugo Lloris (groin) and Michel Vorm ruled them out of the Premier League encounter at Wembley.
Tottenham came out 1-0 winners of the match courtesy of a Heung-min Son strike, but it could have been much different if it weren’t for the heroics of Gazzaniga who saved his side on more than one occasion between the posts.
Before the match, it was a case of ‘Gazzaniga who?’ among some pockets of supporters and he did come in for some early negative comments for his challenge in the first couple of minutes, but following that piece of play he looked more than comfortable.
Here’s what some of the Spurs faithful have been saying about his performance
Decent save there Gazzaniga, we'd be waxing lyrical if that was Hugo

Gazzaniga had a good debut. He had a rush of blood in the 2nd half, but he also made some important saves.

Not pretty but gritty by Spurs. Encouraging display by No.3 keeper Gazzaniga between the sticks. Not the Argentine Ben Alnwick. Phew! #Coys

Gazzaniga played well very well – Fair play to the lad after being thrown in at the deep end! Dier & Vertonghen we’re both immense! #THFC

Happy with that result given the missing players and fatigue. Gazzaniga gave me more confidence in one game than Vorm in many

Great debut from Gazzaniga but MOTM has to be Eric Dier! Key tackles that stopped Palace in their tracks #COYS
