    Played a full 90 against Chelsea. He looked good all things considered although Enzo Fernandez dribbled through him for the final goal

    I'm hoping Palace do enough to not get relegated. I'm sure defending at this level is no joke

    Looked a little unlucky on that goal as he seemed to slip, didn't matter as the game was likely done at that point anyways. Overall good game from him and Lerma.

    Crystal Palace's season all rests on Olise and Eze being fit and able to play, with both of those guys they are pretty damn good, with one they are gonna be fine I think but without either they are really bad.

    Didn’t he slip a few times with Colombia too? I think it was vs Uruguay but I don’t remember

    im sure he'll get some blame for the goal but I do agree with you. I get the impression that as a result of his work rate and the constant running up and down the field causes him to make mistakes with his footwork. The transition from attack to defense and vice versa is hard on the body and I say that coming from experience, can't imagine how it must be at this level.

    Palace are missing several key guys which is one of the reasons why Muñoz was signed and why I think that he is instantly playing

    playing again for Palace against Burnley and he looks great, he is able to easily get forward but today he is playing closer to the edge of the field rather than centrally, he looks great the same as he did in Genk. Palace must have really done their hw with him.

    at times he is able to get into the box and strike at goal because Burnley are now a player down and are beginning to really sink deep

    my only concern is whether he will continue to play once all the injuries are through.

    should also mention they sacked grandpa Roy and brought in Oliver Glasner who's managed Wolfsburg and Frankfurt during the Europa League final

    he plays the same as he did in Belgium. He's an inverted full back so expect to see him higher up the field but his work rate is so good that he is able to run back down the field and defend

    he slotted in seamlessly in england, 0 adaptation process

    Out of all of our players, I’d say he is the nicest surprise

    he is certainly consistent. He has been playing like this for many years

    I don't believe he is an elite player as he struggles when coming up against top players but he is a very hardworking effective man. Perfect for a team like Palace

    I'd take hard working players all day another Abel or Armero who were limited but always did well for us. We also need our "elite players" to be 1/3rd as good as they are for their clubs as they are on our national team

    Genk has turned out to be a fantastic destination. Hopefully they pick up more Colombians for Dev.

    He also seems to struggle a bit in the air. Japan took advantage of him when they scored a nice header and Venezuela came close to scoring on similar play that was crossed into the area.

    But other than the aerial play I will say he is pretty solid.

    He's not an overly imposing figure but he always tries. He gets some luck sometimes and wins a header or 2

    Dani Muñoz playing great against City. Pressing up high, running up and down creating goal scoring opportunities as a direct result of his press

    This move seems to have really worked for him. Love to see it.
