Yannick Bolasie looking forward to Crystal Palace's clash with Liverpool

The winger has taken confidence from the performance against Manchester United despite the 0-0 draw.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie says he is looking forward to facing Liverpool after their performance against Manchester United.

The Eagles were highly unlucky to not leave Selhurst Park with all three points on Saturday, having dominated the game against United for large periods and finding themselves unlucky to get just a point.

Bolasie was particularly unfortunate as he struck the bar, while they also had several other big chances to score and secure victory against Louis Van Gaal’s side.

Next up are Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, sure to be full of confidence from their win over Chelsea, but Bolasie says they’ve got a chance if they perform like they did against United.

"If we play like we did today, we'll trouble a lot of teams, and I'm looking forward to next week," Bolasie told cpfc.co.uk after the game.

"It's going to be a tough game up there, but if we start the way we did [against United], then I think we've got a chance."

After flourishing and becoming the star of the side last season, Bolasie has somewhat struggled at the beginning of this campaign, with a series of niggling injuries having limited his game time so far.

One of those were a head injury suffered against Manchester City last weekend, which required stitches at the time and saw him wearing a bandage against United to prevent further damage.

While the injury is something of a negative, Bolasie just says it has made him stronger, saying that although he is struggling to find the form of last season so far, he has gained confidence from his performance at the weekend.

"I think it's [the injury] made me tougher," he added.

"And I think I grew into the game [against United]. Obviously I haven't hit the form that I would have liked to at the start of the season, it's been a bit of a stop-start. I think that's a good one for the Palace fans to go home with and I'll gain confidence from that performance."
