EAGLES boss Patrick Vieira hopes that his young players learn from recent defeats in the FA Cup and Premier League.

A goal from Miguel Almiron was enough to give the Magpies all three points as Palace struggled to break down Eddie Howe's resurgent side.

This added to disappointment as the club is still recovering from its defeat in the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea.

Vieira was disappointed with his side’s opening 45 minutes as they attempted to shake off the disappointment of their FA Cup semi-final defeat at the weekend, and frustrated that they were unable to turn their domination after the break into goals.

Vieira said: “The second half was quite positive in our way.

“Of course, losing in the FA Cup mentally, physically, that was very challenging.

“We have a young group of players who need to learn from those kinds of games and how do you bounce back the game after it.

“We struggled to get into the game in the first half an hour. We were quite slow in our passes, we didn’t compete well enough and then of course we conceded that goal.

“In the second half, we tried our best, but we couldn’t score.”
