EPL: You get punished really hard – Vieira reacts to 2-0 defeat against Arsenal


Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira, was left frustrated by his team’s failure to convert their chances in the 2-0 loss to Arsenal on Friday.

Gabriel Martinelli and a Marc Guehi own goal gave the Gunners all three points at three points.

Vieira feels it would have been different if they scored goals.

He told Sky Sports: “We created two really good chances to score and we didn’t take them. In this game, you get punished really hard. Of course I’m disappointed because we could have scored, even if we didn’t create much.

“Football is about trying to score goals and we played against a good side. It’s really difficult to control the game against teams that have really good players. We had the ball, we had situations but we didn’t create very much. In the key moments, we didn’t score to lift the crowd and build momentum. That is something we have to work on.”
