Speroni on Clean Sheet Record - I Thought I Needed One More!

27 January 2019

Speroni has been with Palace since 2004 and is the oldest player currently competing in the Premier League by almost a year.

A fan favourite since arriving from Dundee, Speroni still commands Selhurst's support and he received 48% of votes to win the Man of the Match accolade, beating goalscorer Andros Townsend in second place.

Speaking after the Spurs match, Speroni said, "It was great, the whole team performance was excellent. We stuck to our plan, everything worked for us, we scored two good goals and then obviously we need to defend for the second half. They're a very good team in possession so we had to be careful about that, we had to make sure we kept doing what we did in the first half."
