Crystal Palace

Speroni not giving up on regular hopes

22nd January 2019, 10:29 by Jack Ogalbe

Crystal Palace's Julian Speroni says his outing on Saturday at Liverpool has restored his hunger to play regularly.

The Argentine made his first start for over a year at Anfield and produced some sharp saves in what proved to be an eventful 4-3 defeat to the Premier League leaders.

Speroni turns 40 in May and got his chance due to the absences of Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey but he could be pushed further down the pecking order with a loan deal for Sao Paulo goalkeeper Lucas Perri thought to be close.

Next up is Sunday's FA Cup fourth round clash against Tottenham and the former Dundee goalkeeper admits he would love to keep the gloves after so long out.

He said:"I'd like to play as many games as I can, if possible, because it's hard to be out for a while.

"You need that time in the [first-team] to feel the confidence coming back, and it'd be great if I can.

"I enjoy it every time I get to play."
