The Crystal Palace Eagle

Crystal Palace defeated Liverpool 3-1 at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Crystal Palace came from behind to secure a famous win against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

The Eagles drew 3-3 with Brendan Rodgers' side last season but they went one better this time, winning 3-1 after initially going behind when Rickie Lambert put the visitors ahead.

Dwight Gayle made it four career goals against the Reds when he equalised 15 minutes later, and Joe Ledley put the hosts ahead with just 12 minutes to play.

A fine free-kick from Mile Jedinak ended the game as a contest and ensured Palace got back to winning ways after a worrying recent run.

As for Liverpool, things are not getting any better and Rodgers has a lot of work to do with his club now just four points above the bottom three.
