Crystal Palace Are Now In Relegation Fight- Alan Pardew

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew thinks his team who enjoyed an excellent start to the season and spent most of the first half of the campaign in the top half of the table with fans dreaming of a European campaign next term are now facing a fight against relegation.

Although Palace have progressed to the last eight of the FA Cup but their Premier League form has nosedived as they are without a league win since a 2-1 victory at Stoke on December 19 and extended that winless run to 10 matches when they lost 3-2 at West Brom on Saturday.

Pardew says he now thinks Palace have been drawn into the relegation mix when he was asked on Monday if he thought his side were in a relegation fight. He said “Yes, of course we are. We keep losing. There is no talk of Europe at this club. We are focused now on what Crystal Palace need to deliver in this next 10 games. We have got a fantastic opportunity in the FA Cup a quarter-final at Reading on March 11 which is great, and that is running alongside. But the league form, unfortunately, hasn't been good enough, for me, for the fans, for the players, and we need to put it right. That doesn't mean to say we can't have our strongest-ever finish in the Premier League. We can do that, we have the capability, but we need to kick into gear
