Brendan Rogers has discussed his plans for our visit to Merseyside, covering a wide range of talking pointsThis Is Anfield

Liverpool will be looking to build on the impressive 3-1 victory away at Sunderland last Sunday which saw them rise to second in the league table.

Victory over the Eagles this weekend will see Liverpool go top for at least 24 hours, until Arsenal face West Brom on Sunday.

Ian Holloway has also spoken to the press, as he and the team look to halt our poor form.HLTCO

I called in Marouane and Dean with my skipper about the incident (last weekend). Passions do flare up in football. Passion was there but it was misguided. I don’t think I can repeat what I said at half-time. I could have taken both on. I spoke to Cham as to why he didn’t shoot. He said if he was at Arsenal, it would have been a penalty. I still think he could have shot. We have spoken to him. It was just a hairdryer, no fine for him.

The official site has got a preview of tomorrow’s game –

Crystal Palace, without a point from their opening three away fixtures of the season, travel to Anfield looking to cause an upset against Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying side. 

Yannick Bolasie‘s rise to prominence has been far from a straightforward journey – BBC

Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has done it the hard way but he is finally on the verge of achieving his dream.

After life as a semi-professional in non-league football, followed by a spell in Malta, he had to prove himself in League Two, League One and the Championship.

Keith Millen is pleased with the variety of options now open to Ian Holloway – Croydon Advertiser

KEITH Millen says Palace have a number of options going forward ahead of tomorrow’s game at Liverpool, after the return of Yannick Bolasie and Jason Puncheon.

Bolasie is in the squad set for Anfield after recovering from a hamstring injury while Puncheon wasn’t allowed to play against parent club Southampton last weekend.

I’ve looked at the importance of defensive solidarity in our performance tomorrow afternoon, following a string of errors. – HLTCO

Yesterday saw Ian Holloway complete his regular pre-match press conference, which brought with it a pretty frank assessment of where we went wrong, both against Swansea and Southampton. Whilst it’s perfectly understandable for some sections of our support to level a large portion of the blame for our defeats squarely at Holloway’s feet, it must also be said that he remains brutally honest whenever he’s pressed to discuss our tactical shortcomings. It’s a characteristic which isn’t common in the modern game and from my perspective at least, is refreshing to hear.
