Duo Reflect On Goodison Disappointment
Luka Milivojevic and January capture Alexander Sorloth have both given their thoughts on Crystal Palace's defeat to Everton at the weekend.
Heading to Goodison Park for the clash, Palace came out as three one losers on the day and speaking to Crystal Palace FC as he met with the media following the game, our skipper knew we'd let ourselves down given how we started the second period of the game.
'In the last few games in the second half we have had the better half but today in the first five minutes we have conceded two very poor goals. After that it was hard to come back in the game but we had one good chance from Christian and if he scores, 2-1, and that happened before 60 minutes, maybe we could change the game but after that it was very hard to come back.'
With the game seeing a debut from Sorloth, Milivojevic said that he believed he could be pleased with his first game, and obviously we can expect more from him the future when he better adjusts to life at the club and in the country.
'In my opinion he had a good game, first half especially. He adapted well and we are going to try to help him to adapt as soon as possible and for sure I hope he will be a big part of the team.'
With a break before the Tottenham clash, he felt it had come at a good time for the group as the break should benefit those nursing injuries.
'It will be hard for game for sure because they are a top team but we now have 16 days to prepare for that. A long time until that game, we are going to refresh ourselves and we have a lot of injuries but we are maybe going take some players back from injury and will be ready for that game.'
With the game being Sorloth's bow following his arrival, he was obviously in front of club press post game and he was clearly looking for improvement moving forward.
'I am never satisfied if I don`t score, that`s how I see it but I had some good action but it wasn`t enough today. We were not creating enough on the last third as much we should but still had some chances that could have gone our way and maybe the game would have gone differently.'
The 22 year old was asked how he's settling into things at Palace following his deadline day arrival and he said everyone had given him a warm welcome so he was looking to repay our faith by bringing him in.
'Really fast, it`s a good group of guys who are treating me well and the manager believes in me, I can feel that, which makes it easier. Hopefully we will get the guys back from injury and have a stronger side available and so we just need to keep fighting and get those points.'
