Football world reacts to Andros Townsend's screamer against Manchester City

Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend put the Eagles 2-1 up against Manchester City on Saturday with a stinging 30-yard volley.

Ilkay Gundogan gave the Premier League champions the lead just before the half hour mark, however, their advantage was short lived with Jeffrey Schlupp equalising a few minutes later before Townsend gave 15th placed Palace a shock lead with a beautiful volley at the Etihad Stadium.

City have lost just once in the league this season (to Chelsea) and currently sit four points behind league leaders Liverpool following the Reds 2-0 win over Wolves on Friday night.

Townsend's strike would give Jurgen Klopp's side a huge boost heading into the Christmas period but his goal of the season contender drew widespread praise from a host of elite strikers and pundits alike with Alan Shearer, Ian Wright and Gary Lineker all showing their admiration for the goal.
