Jordan Pickford: “Disgusting”

Jordan Pickford believes he made a ‘disgusting’ error in allowing Christian Benteke’s low effort to squirm underneath him.

Everton took the lead in the first half through a wonderful goal from Bernard, but Palace equalised in the 51st minute through Christian Benteke.

Pickford then made an tremendous save, described as ‘match winning’ by Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson to deny Benteke before Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin struck to seal a 3-1 victory for Everton.

Pickford told BT Sport: ‘Yeah, disgusting.

“It was unfortunate the first goal, disappointed with myself, I think my studs got caught. ‘I hold my hands up. ‘It shows my character and mentality, I reset, I didn’t let it affect me.’
