Pieters admits he’s to be blamed for Palace equalizer.

Stoke City midfielder Erik Pieters admits he was to blame for Crystal Palace’s equaliser in his side’s 2-1 defeat at Selhurst Park.A fine individual effort from Xherdan Shaqiri made the visitors likely winners but they led for only three second-half minutes.Ruben Loftus-Cheek then tapped in unchallenged at the back post when Andros Townsend’s cross evaded Stoke’s entire defence and after that lifted Palace, they eventually secured all three points via Mamadou Sakho’s winning goal in stoppage time.Pieters remains adamant he should have prevented Palace’s first, and he told his club’s official website: ‘We are a team and we win, draw and lose together, but the first goal was from my mistake and I am honest enough to hold my hands up and acknowledge that.‘We of course had enough chances to score more goals, and even though we wouldn’t have been happy with the draw we could have accepted it: we simply can’t accept this loss.
