‘We have to improve that’ – Oliver Glasner makes Crystal Palace admission after Spurs defeat

Oliver Glasner has admitted Crystal Palace are already working on improving their record of conceding late goals after the 3-1 defeat at Spurs on Saturday.

The Eagles have let in 19 goals in the last 15 minutes of their 27 Premier League matches this season – the worst of any side in the Premier League.

Palace took the lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium through Eberechi Eze, but three goals in the last 13 minutes of the game saw the north Londoners claim all three points.

He said: “We have started to work on it. I don’t believe in coincidences. If you concede so many goals in the last 15 minutes, we have to work on it and analyse it. To improve it is the most important thing.

“The players are willing to improve it and we have started already, but it’s nothing we can do in two or three days.

“We have one more game against Luton and then three weeks with no game – we will work on it.

“Today the players did really well over a long time. But we’re not able to keep the intensity of the whole game.

“To win at Tottenham, you have to do this. Some improvements with defending today and we can be more confident with the ball.

“Everybody did what they were able to do. But if you concede 19 goals in the last 15 minutes of games, we have to improve that.”
