“You [Palace] don’t create anything except one which was a corner and this one was a free-kick from far. You don’t expect to drop points. We have to invest more to get that second goal and then not be in that situation that a lucky moment costs you two points.
“We were 1-0 up. In the second half we had a lot of space to kill them and go for the second. I never saw we really went for the second goal.
“It’s difficult to say [why]. I have to criticise my team. Go for the second. Bruno and Rashy on the wings, Garnacho, a lot of creativity, speed and power, and McTominay with penetration behind.
“From my perspective [they should have had a penalty] but VAR and the referee make the decision. We have to accept it.”

“We wanted to have the ball and have possession but we couldn’t because of Man United’s quality. We showed discipline and not conceding that second goal was important. We believed and then came the free kick.
On Michael Olise’s free-kick: “Haven’t seen that in training at all! But today he had that belief and confidence and was good for him especially after his performance.”
“When you look at the performances against two teams [Chelsea and Manchester United] who are on a different level, competing for Champions League, if we keep that competitiveness, it will serve us well.
“We look deeper than the result. Our performances have been positive and we want to build from that. You have ups and downs when you are building but it is important for me and the club to stay level headed because it is a process.
“Really pleased with Chris Richards’ performance, he showed that he can compete with our centre backs to play more often. Will Hughes was also important today. It is good to keep the whole squad happy and part of everything.
On Joachim Anderson’s injury: “It will be something between a week to 10 days. He is a really important player for us. But I was impressed with Chris’s performance and really happy that we have players who can compete in this position.”
