Crystal Palace center-back Marc Guehi believes his side’s effort and togetherness shone through in their loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Palace left the Premier League game with nothing on Sunday, losing 1-0.
Nevertheless, Guehi felt the way they fought after going 1-0 down and nearly grabbed an equalizer showcased how much they have improved as a team this season.
“We definitely played well and competed with them,” Guehi said after full-time, per the club website.
“It’s always a difficult place to come to. We showed that spirit and togetherness in the game, and it’s unfortunate that we didn’t come away with at least a point in the game.
“Football is a harsh world. It comes down to the details, to both boxes, and in the end they were just better.
“We competed well, we definitely stayed in the game. We created a few chances ourselves – at half-time we felt good.”
