Hennessey hopeful Old Trafford draw can be a ‘turning point’ for Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace stood firm to get a 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson’s side are now without a win in eight games in all competitions and haven’t won a Premier League fixture since mid-September.

However, the Eagles’ goalkeeper, Wayne Hennessey, was in an upbeat mood when speaking after the game. Hennessey felt that today’s result could have been even better if they had been more clinical in front of goal.

”A massive result. Results have not gone our way but fantastic to get a point at Old Trafford, we could have got three with the chances we had.’’ The Wales international told the BBC.

“Defensively hard work but the boys were fantastic today. We will take the point. They made it very hard for us but we could cope with it.”

From a personal viewpoint, Hennessey was delighted to have kept a clean sheet, thwarting United’s Romelu Lukaku in the process.

“Fantastic to keep out Romelu Lukaku, very happy. Hopefully, this is a turning point for us and we can start creeping up the table.”

Next up for Palace is a home game with Sean Dyche’s struggling Burnley side, an ideal opportunity for Hodgson and co. to build on today’s result.
