Under-pressure Pardew bemoans quality of nine goals

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew described the 5-4 defeat to Swansea as “madness” and believes his players only have themselves to blame.

The Eagles have now lost six straight games in the Premier League and only goal difference is currently saving them from being the drop zone.

“It was an unbelievable game for us, set play goals, I think there were four of them, incredible really,” Pardew told BBC Sport.

“It had a crazy feel to it the second half. The referee gifted them the first goal, in terms of the decision, and it changed the momentum.

“Then I thought Swansea did well and we were hanging on and then the game went into a period of madness of goals. Bad goals for them and bad goals for us. In the end, five bad goals for us and four for them.

“Very disappointed the way we defended, particularly the last two goals when we got ourselves in front.”
