Aaron Wan-Bissaka reflected on a disappointing journey down to the south coast on Tuesday evening after a second half strike from Patrick van Aanholt looked to have given the Eagles an opportunity of picking up more points on the road against Bournemouth.
“I thought they were better than us for the first fifteen, they got on top but then in the second half I thought the team played well as we were moving the ball around quick and created a lot of chances.”
Junior Stanislas converted a penalty with three minutes remaining after referee, Mike Dean, adjudged that Mamadou Sakho had impeded Jefferson Lerma but it was a decision which the Palace defender felt was one that the side were unfortunate to concede.
“I have watched it back and there wasn’t really a great deal of contact but at the same time it’s disappointing as we were getting back in the game and felt we were close to getting the point,” as Wan-Bissaka now has to turn his attention to the match at Selhurst on Saturday against Wolves who have made an impressive start to life in the top flight.
“No games come easy but we will work hard in training this week and be ready to take the challenge on at the weekend."
