Alan Pardew comments on criticism he is receiving as Crystal Palace manager

Crystal Palace Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace have taken just three points from their last 10 Premier League matches.

Alan Pardew has admitted at a press conference today that he deserves to be receiving criticism after Crystal Palace’s latest dip in form.

Palace are yet to win a Premier League match in 2016, and they have only taken three points from their last 10 games.

The Eagles have slipped right down to 14th place in the Premier League table and the pressure is on Pardew to arrest their slide sooner rather than later.

The former Newcastle United boss has faced criticism over his recent team selections, and he admits that supporters are correct to be questioning his management.

Palace were challenging for a European spot over the first half of the campaign, but they have dropped down the standings at a rapid rate.

The London side are in no immediate danger of relegation, given that they are still eight points above the drop zone, but they cannot feel totally assured of their top flight status just yet.

Palace will need at least another two wins before they can feel confident that they will be a Premier League club again next season.

The Eagles’ next match comes against Sam Allardyce's fast improving Sunderland side on Tuesday evening at the Stadium of Light.
