Alan Pardew believes Crystal Palace have the potential to start competing with Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew says that he wants to see the club competing with the likes of Aston Villa, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.

Pardew took charge of the Eagles at the start of the year and he has helped them move forward as a club, guiding them into a mid-table spot.

The 53-year-old boss is determined not to relax, though, and he wants Palace to keep progressing in the future.

To start competing with Everton, Villa and Tottenham could be a challenge for Palace, but with a  good summer there is no telling how far they could progress.

The London side have one of the most exciting front-lines in the division and if they can add a sprinkling of extra quality in other areas, then they could be in for a very impressive campaign next term.

Pardew seemingly believes that they have a chance of challenging for the European spots, and that would be a massive achievement.

Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League table, with Everton 10th and Aston Villa 16th. Palace, meanwhile, are in 12th spot.
