Milivojevic: Crystal Palace ‘deserved’ more from West Ham draw

Luka Milivojevic thought Crystal Palace were unfortunate not to win their game against West Ham this afternoon.

The Eagles had the best of the ball and the chances in what was an entertaining London derby down at Selhurst Park, although it was the visitors who took the lead through a Mark Noble penalty on 27 minutes after Lukasz Fabianski cleaned out Michail Antonio.

Palace spurned a number of opportunities to equalise, with James McArthur and Michy Batshuayi the most guilty culprits in the second half.

However, they would get themselves back on level terms through Wilfried Zaha in the 76th minute, when his deflected strike crept in at Fabianski’s near post.

Speaking after the game, Palace captain Luka Milivojevic thought that his side had done enough to earn claim all three points.

“We are pleased with how we played and how many chances we created – I’m very proud,” Milivojevic told BBC Sport.

“We felt the fans were behind us, but they were an experienced team. West Ham’s penalty was a clear penalty and they scored but in the end we deserved more from this game.

“We are not happy because we felt we deserved more.”
