Vieira makes honest admission about performance against Foxes

Patrick Vieira has admitted that his team did not play well in their loss to Leicester City.

 Ademola Lookman and Kiernan Dewsbury’s first-half goals gave Leicester victory over Crystal Palace, despite Wilfried Zaha’s goal for Palace.

Boss Vieira said: “The performance, in the first half, Leicester were the better team and they started with better intentions. We didn’t take enough risks to find our midfield three.

“We didn’t compete well enough, and they were more aggressive. In the second half we created some chances but it was too much for us to climb.

“The difficulty was to concede the second goal just before half-time. It wasn’t a good performance from us overall.

“It’s important for me and the club to remain consistent with our emotions.

“There are still a lot of details we need to improve and some of that will come in time.”

Vieira and his team will now focus on Sunday’s FA Cup Semi-Final clash with Chelsea.
