Unsworth played absolutely the correct team against Palace, probably barring Lookman. He provided a good solid midfield to protect a defence that has now conceded the joint most goals in the PL.

Lennon also had to play to protect Kenny (who actually did very well) against Zaha's pace.

All in all, I was pleased with the resolve the squad showed, and we had chances to win the game in the second half (DCL's sticks out).

Anyone who says Rooney should have played clearly hasn't watched this season's football closely enough. He has been absolutely useless apart from a couple of goals from 25 yards. He gives the ball away more than any other player, no pace, barely any creativity, and not as much energy as Siggy. He just isn't that good anymore and needs to be shipped onto China/MLS/AN Other in the summer.

ADDITION - Also, 2-2 against a side away from home with a passionate crowd, who has a new manager and some good players is really not a bad result at all, especially playing the way we are. Unbeaten now in 2 whole games! Don't forget the impact that this has on confident building in the squad.
