Video: Fraser Forster Gifts Crystal Palace a Goal With Incredible Howler

He might be rated as one of the best goalkeepers in England at the moment but Fraser Forster is having an absolute nightmare this afternoon.

The Southampton No.1 was in his usual position between the sticks for his side’s trip to Crystal Palace this afternoon, but he’s probably wishing he was absolutely anywhere else at the moment.

Going into the Premier League fixture, you’d be forgiven for having Southampton down as favourites when you consider Palace have lost their previous six league matches and their manager Alan Pardew is fighting for his job.

Pards might have been cursing his luck recently but he got more than a slice of good fortune when Forster somehow made an absolute disaster of a routine back-pass:

That’s Benteke’s sixth goal of the season and, coincidentally, it’s also his birthday today.

How nice of Forster to get him a present, eh?
