Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson says they are looking up, not over their shoulders, following the 1-1 draw with West Ham United.
Wilfried Zaha’s late equaliser, upon his return from suspension, secured a deserved point for the Eagles, who trailed to Mark Noble’s first-half penalty.
Palace are just three points above the relegation zone and have work to do to avoid the drop, but Hodgson insisted their display against the Hammers was not that of a struggling side.
“I did think our performance, particularly in the second half, was really good and it would have been a bit of a travesty to have got nothing,” he said.
“Given the number of chances we had, the one goal we got was pretty poor reward for our efforts. The performance merited three points. “We need to be able to play like this whoever we meet in the Premier League.
That’s what we’re doing, and that gives me a lot of comfort. “There are a lot of games to play. I can continue to hope these performances can get us into the top half of the table.
“My perception is that I think I’ve got a very good football team and they showed it today. I’m entitled to have faith in this team and believe that they should be less concerned about the teams below them.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
