You can now watch Alan Pardew’s full pre-match press conference ahead of today’s Premier League meeting against Liverpool at Anfield.
Giving an update on the injuries within the squad, the gaffer gives an insight into one or two who could return to action following a layoff, before admitting that one of the star performers in our last game against Manchester United may miss out.
Airing his views on the tactical changes that have been implemented by Jurgen Klopp since his arrival, it’s clear that Pardew views the German as a threat, but feels as though there are one or two areas we can easily exploit if we are on our game. Deconstructing the minor tweaks Klopp has made to his new team in the weeks since taking over the reins on Merseyside, Alan is also quick to state that the man Jurgen replaced was once looked upon as the brightest manager on the scene, making a pointed dig at the fickle nature of the footballing press.
Highlighting the wretched run of fixtures we’ve been forced to contend with recently, the Palace boss admits that he and his players have had to work hard to maintain a sense of momentum, given the strength of the opposition from week to week.
Lasting a little under nine minutes in length, it’s a discussion that’s well worth a few minutes of your time as we build-up towards this afternoon’s clash.
