Why Luka Milivojevic attracted hate during Crystal Palace vs Newcastle

Crystal Palace 1 – Newcastle 1

It was a match both Crystal Palace and Newcastle need to win.

Sadly for their sets of supporters, the game finished 1-1.

A hectic 90 minutes played out in south London on Sunday in the relegation six-pointer at Selhurst Park.

Roy Hodgson would have been furious with how Palace fell behind to the Magpies. Awful defending from a corner allowed Mo Diame to open at the back post.

Palace levelled in the second half from the penalty spot. After Christen Benteke won a penalty after his shirt was pulled in the box, Luke Milivojevic scored the equaliser from the penalty spot.

FPL manager hate Luka Milivojevic

As soon as Milivojevic scored, fans to social media to vent about the Crystal Palace midfielder.

Many football fans might be surprised to think that anyone would be bothered about Milivojevic.

Just saying his name is usually the biggest bother Luka gives football supporters.

However Milivojevic is a hugely owned midfielder in the Premier League’s FPL game.

In fact the Eagles midfielder is owned by 4.6% of all FPL managers.

So why is Milivojevic so widely owned in fantasy? It’s because he’s super cheap, he plays, so many people have him in their teams but as a permanent fixture on the bench.

Cue the hate.
