Crystal Palace

Performances good enough for Palace

26th January 2019, 12:54 by Jack Ogalbe

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish is confident the team's performances will start to produce the results he feels they deserve.

The Eagles were unlucky not to get a point at Liverpool last Saturday, eventually losing out 4-3, and now turn their attention to Sunday's FA Cup clash with Tottenham.

That was Palace's third defeat in four Premier League games and while they sit 14th in the table, only enjoy a three-point advantage over the bottom three.

A trip to Southampton awaits on Wednesday and punters may look to use their free bet to back Palace to get all three points at St Mary's.

Writing in his club's match-day programme ahead of Sunday's game, Parish has praised the commitment shown by Roy Hodgson's side and is confident they are close to a strong run of results.

"Last week's performance at Liverpool had everything, less the point that it deserved," he said. "Yet again, we proved our ability to go toe-to-toe with the best teams by playing some magnificent football.

"There is no question luck played a large part in their victory thanks to two deflected goals and a handball, and I'm beginning to look forward to VAR arriving although I do still have great concerns about its overall effect.

"In spite of this, we must be proud of Roy and the players. These performances will start generating points, of that I'm sure."
