Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt has urged his teammates to keep playing well and the points will come, following their narrow loss to Tottenham at the weekend.

Crystal Palace have been playing well throughout challenging fixtures but lack the points to show for it, and van Aanholt believes it’s just a matter of time before they will start winning games given the way they’ve been performing.

“We played well, we played strongly but we didn’t get any points,” van Aanholt told the club’s website.

It’s frustrating but we’ve got to stick together. It’s a difficult time but, like I said, we need to stick together like we always do and the points will come.

“We were solid defensively, it was just a bad day.

“We’ve been here before. But, like I said, we are very good – we’ve just got to get the points up. As soon as we get the points up, we’ll be alright.”
