Alan Pardew has warned Crystal Palace they could get dragged into the relegation scrap unless they get back to winning ways soon.
The Eagles are now without a win in 10 games after Saturday’s 3-2 defeat against West Brom and Pardew is worried about their poor form.
Palace are eight points above the relegation zone with 11 matches still to be played and, ahead of games on Tuesday against Sunderland and Liverpool on Sunday, the boss admits relegation is still a possibility.
He said: “We were cruising but suddenly it [relegation] is creeping up on us. We need to put it right, at Sunderland or against Liverpool.
“We need a win in one of those games.”
