Slow start annoys Sousa

Leicester manager Paulo Sousa was left to reflect on the lapses which cost his side dear in the opening half of the 3-2 defeat at Crystal Palace. Strikes from 17-year-old striker Wilfred Zaha, Darren Ambrose and Alan Lee put Palace 3-0 up at half-time, although goals from Andy King and DJ Campbell saw the Foxes come close to achieving a memorable fightback. "I think we started well but conceded two silly goals," said Sousa. "What I saw in the second half was a team with more anger to turn the situation around. I think we became a better team and created more chances. "In the second half, the pressure was going pretty much one way and we stopped their counter-attacks, but unfortunately we did not make the best decisions in the first half."
