Posted on 17 August 2013  - 18:05

Andre Villas-Boas has been counting down the days to our opener at Palace since pre-season began six weeks ago.

Now it’s here, the Head Coach insists: “It’s good for us to start again!”

“It’s back to work,” said Andre. “When you are in pre-season you always want the time to go by quickly and you think of this first game.”

Andre was in a positive mood after Friday’s training session.

“It’s been an international week, so we haven’t had a great deal of time to work with the players and today (Friday) was the first time we had everyone joining in with training,” he said.

“It was a good day’s training after international week. Fitness-wise, we look sharp. On that front, pre-season has served us well.”

Andre expects Selhurst Park to provide an atmosphere of ‘emotion and intensity’ on Sunday. We kick-off at 1.30pm.

“It’s a tough game and difficult to play against a team that has just come up,” he said.

“We have to be disciplined and hopefully the quality of the players we have will make the difference and we will come back with three points.”
