Whether we like it or not the game last night in north London is behind us, and we have to look forward.
The next game is a more winnable game at home to Crystal Place on Saturday afternoon.
Palace have been coming into some form and beat Huddersfield Town last Saturday to officially see the Terriers relegated after two seasons in England’s top division.
But Rafa, as always, is only looking forward to the next game and will prepare his players for what is likely to be a close game at St. James’ on Saturday afternoon.
Rafa Benitez – does he really need to pray?
This is what Rafa has said as reported in the Shields Gazette today:
“You can talk about lots of things, but I would prefer to be where we are and have the points on the table. “
“After that, we have to try to get three points in the next game, and that’s it.”
“For us, every game is a final. I said that before. For us, the next game is the most important – it’s one game at a time.”
“We have to be sure we’re focused. We have to be confident when we approach the game and try to win. After, we’ll see what happens with the other teams.”
“Every game will be difficult. I have always said that maybe the last game against Fulham could be the one that makes the difference.”
“Hopefully not, but we have to keep going with that in our mind. “We just have to believe we can get the points, that’s it.”
The only thing that matters now is the game at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon at 3:00pm.
We need to win this game.
