Twitter goes into meltdown after Swansea beat Crystal Palace 5-4
2016 has thrown up surprises left, right and centre, but even so, Swansea’s 5-4 thriller over Crystal Palace is surely one of the maddest events of the year.
Bob Bradley won’t forget his first win in charge of the Swans in a hurry, while defeat for the Eagles will only raise more speculation over the future of Alan Pardew.
Swansea scored twice in stoppage time to pull off the result, which went down a storm on Twitter…
WIlfried Zaha put the visitors ahead, before Gylfi Sigurdsson left it at a casual 1-1 at the interval.
But the second-half was simply thrilling.
Leroy Fer netted twice in two minutes to put the Swans 3-1 and on course for a first win since the opening day…

But somehow, incredibly, Swansea sub Fernando Llorente scored TWICE in stoppage time to steal one of the Premier League’s craziest games 5-4…
Fernando Llorente? absolute scenes

Can we just ensure Fernando Llorente starts games? And keep him fit? He will score!
