Alan Pardew has revealed that Crystal Palace replicated the form they had against Chelsea and Manchester United during their 3-1 victory over Liverpool.
The Eagles came from behind to seal a victory in Reds captain Steve Gerrard's last game at Anfield. The former England international will leave the Merseyside club at the end of the season as he has already agreed terms to join LA Galaxy.
Adam Lallana gave Brendan Rodgers' side an early lead, only to be cancelled by Jason Puncheon's free kick. Former Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha came on from the bench and extended Palace's lead before Glenn Murray converted the penalty in the stoppage time to seal three points.
Palace lost to Chelsea and United and despite their defeats, they were impressive in both these games. The former Newcastle United manager went on to hail his players for their efforts during his side's latest victory over Liverpool.
"We knew what the narrative was today and I thought it was important we carried the level of performance we had versus Chelsea and United," Pardew explained.
"The only difference today was we had a bit more control of the ball, with Chamakh coming into the team. We've missed him. Puncheon was terrific. Those two players are very important."
"Bolasie showed today where he is in his world. He's got power, pace and he's a threat. But the final goal didn't come for him today."
"I've played him through the middle a few times now. He's scary to play against, he's got that scare product. We've been terrific away from home, but haven't got the balance at home. A win against Swansea could put us in the top ten. Our away form is phenomenal," he concluded.
Meanwhile, Puncheon has expressed his delight after Palace sealed their second victory of the season over Liverpool.
"It was belief and the character that secured that result. Obviously it was a big game for Steven Gerrard but for us it was just another game that we wanted to try and win and we did that," Puncheon told Palace's official website.
"For my goal I just knew that the last few weeks the goalkeeper had probably been watching me thinking I was going to go to the same side so I said before the game that if we got a free-kick that I would go the other way," he added.
