Luka Milivojevic has insisted he will still take Crystal Palace's penalties despite his "very painful" miss from the spot against Everton.

The Serbian midfielder had the chance to give Palace the lead at Goodison Park on Sunday, but was denied by England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford before two goals in the last five minutes gave Everton a 2-0 victory.

It was only Milivojevic's second miss in his previous 11 penalty attempts.

"I was 100 per cent sure that I was going to score," Milivojevic said.

"I step up to take responsibility to try to make something good and positive for my team and in the end you miss and after that you are punished in the last five minutes. It's hard and very painful."

"Just in the end I think I did a mistake in my last step before the shot and maybe that decided it, but I have confidence to take another one and score for my team."
