The penalty was an incredible reward for Palace and from then on the mental change allowed Palace to have a lot of belief and to change the game. It was very uncharacteristic of us to concede three goals with three errors, but even then the character was incredible and we almost managed to get something out of the game.

I told them to play with a smile. All three wingers worked their socks off and I was really pleased. Zaha looked positive when he came on. People would expect us to defend but we wanted to win the game.
