Steve Parish reacts on Twitter to Palace win, singles out 'best player'

The Crystal Palace chairman was understandably pleased after his side beat Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield.

The Eagles clearly didn't read the script before they arrived on Merseyside!

This was supposed to be Steven Gerrard's Anfield send-off, meaning a last-minute winner or two would have been a great note for the Liverpool legend to go out on.

In the event, Crystal Palace didn't allow anything of the sort to happen, beating the Reds 3-1.

And Palace chairman Steve Parish was naturally delighted with his side's result. Interestingly, the south London club had been on a losing streak going into this one...

Of course, Parish also paid tribute to Liverpool captain Gerrard on Twitter - who couldn't on such a day?

But the Crystal Palace chairman felt the limelight was stolen off Gerrard by the Eagles' 'best player' on the day in Jason Puncheon, with Parish posting a picture of the two of them in action.

Liverpool will no doubt want to forget all about Crystal Palace games after this season, having been beaten 3-1 by Parish's club both home and away.

Palace even managed to beat the Reds under Neil Warnock and showed no hesitation about repeating the feat under Alan Pardew.
