Hennessey Devastated By Defeat

21 January 2017

Wayne Hennessey was left devastated with Palace's late defeat at home to Everton, saying that he felt it was a point dropped in the race for survival.

A controversial 87th minute goal from Seamus Coleman settled the tie in the Toffees' favour, following a determined display by the boys in red and blue - in which Hennessey had made several top class saves.

"We're devastated right now," said the Welshman. "Their goalkeeper's made a good save really need the end, if that goes in then it's a completely different game. We've definitely lost a point there.

"It's not like we're playing and not creating chances or anything like that, we're actually doing really well - it's just not running for us at the moment [in the final third], hopefully that can change."

Hennessey had made several reaction saves to deny the visitors, but he is adamant that clean sheets are all that will do.

"I'm proud, but I'm in that position to get clean sheets and I haven't produced many clean sheets, I've only got one this season," he said. "I need to start keeping more clean sheets."
