Crystal Palace forward Alexander Sorloth has admitted to being frustrated about his lack of game time at Selhurst Park.
The striker has been playing second fiddle to Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha for much of his short Palace career so far, prompting concerns over his future at the club.
Sorloth was expected to play an involved role under Roy Hodgson in South London following his move from FC Midtjylland in January. However, he has been generally starved of opportunities, with Benteke the preferred option until his recent injury.
Speaking to the Norwegian media, as reported by Football London, Sorloth admitted that being on the bench regularly has left him frustrated.
It’s frustrating to sit on the bench, especially when I’m young and hungry to show how good I am. I arrived at Palace with very high confidence so it is a contrast.
There is still a lot of time before January and there are a lot of matches. I hope there are some chances that I will take. So, let’s see what’s happening in January.
Sorloth has not yet started a Premier League fixture for Crystal Palace in the early stages of the current season, with his only starts coming in Carabao Cup fixtures against Swansea City and West Brom.
The 22-year-old will be desperate to make his mark on proceedings at Palace after a stuttering start. Regular game time, however, remains hard to come by for the powerful forward.
