Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce has lashed out at the manner in which his side lost out to a late victor from Everton in their clash at Selhurst Park this afternoon.
Jan 21 (Reuters) - Sam Allardyce's anxious wait for a first Premier League win as Crystal Palace manager continued as his lacklustre side suffered a 1-0 home defeat by in-form Everton that left them stuck in the bottom three.
New signings Morgan Schneiderlin and Ademola Lookman both came on but were unable to make a difference, though Lookman looked lively and worked well with Lukaku.
"It's not like we're playing and not creating chances or anything like that", he told the club's website.
Despite the £12.5million signing from Leicester City being stricken with cramp in the game's closing stages, referee Anthony Taylor chose not to stop play and 10-man Palace subsequently conceded from the area of the pitch Schlupp would have been defending.
Robles saved Scott Dann's effort as Palace mounted a rare attack but Coleman fired the ball into the roof of the net with just four minutes left to hand the visitors all three points.
"I'll wait and see [whether Jules plays Saturday]". "If we don't get reinforcements, we'll improve the players we've got".
"It was an easy one because it's right down his side".
"We're very disappointed that we haven't got a 0-0 and that clean sheet scenario that we need to start building on". "I will try and continue to grow the players to get better, and try and say: 'I've been here before, I know what it takes to get out of this particular predicament, and I can only do that if you respond to what we do'".
Speroni, who has been at Palace since 2004, has not played in England's top tier since the final day of last season when an impending FA Cup final played a major role in Alan Pardew's team selection. From the first second to the last, he is always on the run and it is hard to defend that.
