Kenny Dalglish's advice to Alan Pardew

Kenny Dalglish Watches On

The Liverpool legend has been discussing today's FA Cup clash with Crystal Palace.

Former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has urged Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew to concentrate on the here and now ahead of his side's FA Cup tie with the Reds later today, according to his column in the Daily Mirror.

Pardew scored the winner for Crystal Palace against Liverpool in 1990 and there have been suggestions the Eagles boss will draw upon the historic memory for inspiration as his side host Brendan Rodgers' men at Selhurst Park this evening.

Dalglish, however, who starred for Liverpool as a player before enjoying two spells as manager at Anfield, feels Pardew should concentrate on more recent events if he is to conquer the Reds.

Indeed, Crystal Palace beat the Merseyside outfit 3-1 at home earlier this season, while coming back from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with them towards the end of last season.

"I think Pardew is very good at his job," the Liverpool legend said.

"He's gone back to Palace, where he wants to be, but I don't see any logic in going back years and years - just concentrate on what you have at your disposal.

"Alan Pardew can look back to that 1990 game, when he scored the winner [against the Reds], for inspiration but they really just need to look at the last two matches they have played at home to Liverpool."

Crystal Palace have been in fine form since Pardew left Newcastle United for the east London side but are sure to be tested by Rodgers' men, who have been in the best form of any Premier League team in 2015.
