Lucky boy! Chamakh escaped being sent off during Crystal Palace v Norwich [Vine & Tweets]
Marouane Chamakh was extremely lucky to be on the pitch after shoving Wes Hoolahan in the 42nd minute.
The Moroccan international pushed Hoolahan in the face and only received a yellow card for it.
Norwich manager Chris Hughton was outraged that Chamakh hadn’t received his marching orders and commented after the match: “Marouane Chamakh should have been sent-off, there is no doubt about it.”
Chamakh has been in good form for Crystal Palace recently and is enjoying a new lease of life under new eagles manager Tony Pulis.

Chamakh is a lucky boy. Should've gone off for a shove on Hoolihan.

42 – Bit of a coming together here as players from both sides get involved in a tussle. Yellow cards shown to Hoolahan and Chamakh.
