Mile Jedinak highlights the key to Crystal Palace beating Liverpool

Giroud And Jedinak

The midfielder was pleased to see his side end a run of three straight defeats with a draw against Manchester United.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Crystal Palace star Mile Jedinak says he believes that the Eagles must impose themselves to get a positive result against Liverpool this weekend.

Alan Pardew’s side have a good recent record against the Reds, having won both home and away in the league against them when Brendan Rodgers was in charge last season.

They also famously drew 3-3 with them in the latter stages of the 2013/14 season, a result which ended up costing Rodgers’ side the title.

Palace were imposing in all those encounters, and Jedinak says they must adopt a similar approach this weekend in order to take anything from the contest.

“If we can impose ourselves, like we tend to do, then we give ourselves every opportunity of going on to win the game,” he told cpfc.co.uk.

"In possession you have to be tidy and the boys did that really well, so we were able to come out on top. The game at home was a tough game [last season but] we played our natural game and capitalised on our chances."

The midfielder was also pleased to see his side take a point against Manchester United last time out.

Pardew’s side were unfortunate not to leave Selhurst Park with all three points against the Red Devils, as they dominated Louis van Gaal's side but failed take full advantage of several big chances.

That draw ended a run of three straight defeats for the side, though, and Jedinak says they are now keen to push on, starting with Liverpool.

“It was good to stop the rot, as they say, by getting the draw at home to Man United,” he added.

"There's a good feeling here, there always is. We want to keep going and stay with the pack. All in all we're pleased, but we want to push on."
