CRYSTAL Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni believes the Eagles could have easily come away with a point at Chelsea on Saturday. The custodian also accepted many supporters around the country may have expected a drubbing for Tony Pulis' men at Stamford Bridge. And he recalled his big double save in the final stages to deny Chelsea in what would have been an undeserved third goal. "I tried to stay big for the first one and I just tried get something on the second," said Speroni. "It's frustrating sometimes when you make saves and it's not enough for the team to win or get something out of the game. "We could have scored one or two (more) really. It could have been at least a draw, so we're disappointed with that but we have to take the positives. "Most people were probably expecting Chelsea to beat us comfortably but that wasn't the case. "We stood up to the challenge, we battled all the way and I think we can all be proud of the performance. "I thought we all did very well." And on the first goal conceded after 16 minutes, Speroni revealed he didn't have much time to pull off a save from Blues midfielder Willian. "It was tough because I couldn't see the ball very well and then I managed to get a touch on it, then it was unlucky it came back off the post to Fernando Torres."
