Palace boss Pardew delighted with victory at Liverpool

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew was pleased with victory at Liverpool.

Adam Lallana's opener for Liverpool was superseded by goals from Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray's added time penalty rebound.

"We knew what the narrative was today and the agenda," he said.

"We talked about it and thought it was important we carried the level of importance from Chelsea and Manchester United.

"The only difference today was we probably had a bit more control with (Marouane) Chamakh coming into the team.

"We have missed him. Puncheon was terrific. Those two gave us a level of control. After the first 15 minutes and the mistake we made, we improved."

On Steven Gerrard Pardew added his plaudits, saying: "It is very difficult to put into words what Steven has done for Liverpool.

"I can only speak as a fan and a lover of football for what he has done for England.

"He has carried the nation at times and we should all be honoured to have someone who has conducted himself that way."
