Milivojevic - We Have to Improve for 2019

30 December 2018

Following a 1-0 loss at Selhurst Park to Chelsea, Palace captain Luka Milivojevic reflected on a disappointing result to finish 2018 following the game, and looked ahead to how the team need to develop going forward into 2019.

Looking back over the match, Milivojevic said, "I think we didn't create enough today, they were the better side for 75 minutes. We tried in the last 15 to 20 minutes to do something, we tried to score and had some chances but I think from my point of view they weren't clear-cut chances.

"They played well and in the end I think they deserved it."

Palace did enter half-time level with the Blues, however, and had defended resolutely at times. The Serbian 27-year-old took a moment to assess what went well and what needs changing for the fixtures upcoming in the New Year.

Evaluating the performance, he said, "The first-half was okay, they had a few chances but the second-half they scored early and they have a lot of quality, they keep the ball very well. We tried very hard to take possession, to play football. They were really good today I think. 

"We all know [what we need to do], we had a lot of chances this season and didn't convert them. We have to improve. The good thing is we create a lot but still, we don't score. I think we have to keep our shape, our defensive work as well as our offensive work in the final third, and I think we have to be more clinical. We have to score more and I hope that will change in the future."
