Crystal Palace boss, Patrick Vieira has said his team deserves to be in a higher position in the Premier League.
Back-to-back draws against Brentford and Newcastle followed and the Eagles would return from the September international break to go ahead against Chelsea, only for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to equalise ahead of Conor Gallagher’s stoppage-time winner.

In an interview with Tubes for Sky Sports, Vieira admitted that occupying 17th was not a true reflection on Palace’s season so far. He said: “This is the frustration about it is because w. we are in the table does not reflect the way we have been .ing so far.
“That’s gave us some hope for the rest of the season and at the same time the table doesn’t lie. So we have to understand that .ing well is good because that allowed us to create chances. But we don’t win games and to win games we need to do a little bit more individually, collectively, to turn those performances into a win.”

After just seven games, Palace have already come up against three of last season’s top four in Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea, as well as Arsenal who finished fifth last term but currently sit atop the Premier League table.
Vieira added: “This is the Premier League. You . the big four. Every game has its own challenges. We performed and competed well against those teams we’ve .ed so far. How can we improve those performances, how can we be more consistent?”
