Hughes: We need to be sensible


Mark Hughes admitted his side need to be ‘sensible’ following their 4-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst park.

Two first half headers from James Tomkins and Scott Dann hand the Eagles a 2-0 lead at half-time, before James McArthur and Andre Townsend wrapped up the points in the second half.

Stoke scored a consolation deep into stoppage time when Marko Arnautovic finished from long-range.

The Potters now sit bottom with only one point registered this season.

"The start didn't help our situation; it has been happening in almost every game. We're too open and teams capitalise on that. We are not giving ourselves a chance to win Premier League games.” Hughes told the BBC.

"This is not the start we expected, it's a case of getting together and what we are doing, the game plan needs to be at a better level. The dressing room is full of good talent, but that talent needs to ally it to sensible play, which we're not doing."

The former Manchester City manager will be hoping for a change in form when his side travel to face Tony Pulis’ Stoke City on the 21st of September.
