Crystal Palace’s form has taken a dip in the last few weeks and what looked like a top-half finish to the season now sees them sitting at the 14th position going into their match against Aston Villa. Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane criticised Roy Hodgson’s side saying that it looked like that the squad was on their holidays and tipped Villa to make it five consecutive defeats for Palace. However, Hodgson has defended his side and dismissed Keane’s claims.
Roy Hodgson said “I certainly don’t have any fears about the players to keep going and give their level best in the rest of the games, I haven’t been disappointed with the way the team has performed during these [post-lockdown] games. There have been moments when we’ve done well, in particular, the other night when Chelsea knew they’d been very much in a game and were quite fortunate to get away with all three points. We’ll be trying to get as many points as we possibly can in these last four games. It’s not going to be easy but it will be important to break the losing sequence.”
