Crystal Palace manager Vieira praises 'different class' Eze after Liverpool display

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira has heaped praise on Eberechi Eze after his display against Liverpool.

The English playmaker set up Wilfried Zaha to score in the 1-1 draw at Anfield.

"Really pleased, Eze in that action showed his talent," Vieira said.

"People forget sometimes that he was injured for quite a while last year and he's getting to his best. What he needs now is to play games.

"I think today he was a different class."

He added: "There's a lot of teams that when they come to play Liverpool, they'll be happy with a point.

"I have to say we played a really good game, of course I'm pleased with the point. Overall we kept our discipline, in a really tough place to come and try to perform.

"We created some really good chances in a difficult period, stuck together and defended really well. I'm really happy with how the team played."
