Their campaign was completely in big trouble after a string of poor performances. This trend continued until the end of 2020 where they looked down and out. But they staged a decent comeback that enabled them to get back on track.
But the issue has been the lack of self-confidence in this season which was clearly evident when they struggled to close games against minnows. They won their last clash against Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park stadium.
