Joe Ledley on his knee
Crystal Palace midfielder Joe Ledley has assured the club’s fans that he has not suffered any serious injury to his knee
The Wales international scored the second goal for the Eagles in their 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Selhurst Park in the Premier League on Sunday.
Although former Celtic star Ledley played for the entire 90 minutes, there was a suspicion that he had picked up a knee problem.
However, late on Sunday night the 27-year-old took to social networking site Twitter to confirm that he is fully fit.

Mile Jedinak on victory
Also on the scoresheet against Liverpool was Palace captain Mile Jedinak, who found the target with a brilliant free kick nine minutes from time.
The 30-year-old Australia international was delighted with the win and underlined the importance of picking up the three points.
“It's a massive win and we needed that big time,” Palace’s official website quotes him as saying.
“The boys knew it was going to be a difficult game but they were first class especially the boys up top – Yannick, Gayley, Cham and Punch caused mayhem and that what we wanted, plus we kept it tight at the back after the goal so we're ecstatic with that.
“We've been thrown different obstacles this season and to lose a goal so early we could have just put our heads down, but the positivity, the fight and the willingness was first class and I can't thank all the boys enough for really digging in in a tough game.”
Yannick Bolasie reflects on successful week
Palace winger Yannick Bolasie could not score against Liverpool, but he was arguably the best player on the pitch at Selhurst Park.
The 25-year-old set up two goals for Neil Warnock’s side and was overjoyed with a successful week on a personal level.
“I think it's been the best week of my life so far, obviously qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations and scoring two goals in that game, and then today which was a great team effort,” Palace’s official website quotes him as saying. “I just wanted to play because I had a good feeling as I'd done well against Liverpool last season and it's turned out that way as we've won today.
“That will help the team's confidence - looking at the table before the game it didn't look very nice but we dug deep today and credit to the boys we got the result at the end of it.”
