Crystal Palace lost 4-2 to Liverpool at Selhurst Park yesterday.
Crystal Palace suffered their third consecutive defeat, and despite scoring twice, Alan Pardew's team couldn't do enough to stop Liverpool.
Goals from Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Roberto Firmino secured Liverpool's fifth win in six league games, although the Reds' defence remains their weakness as James McArthur levelled twice before the break.

Palace's form hasn't been great lately, Pardew's team have conceded seven goals in their past two league games and have not kept a clean sheet in their past 15.
The hosts were poor in the first half, defensive errors allowed Palace to twice get back in the game. The Eagles improved after the break but the attacking force of Liverpool proved irresistible. There were two penalty shouts for Palace for challenges on Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke but neither were given.

Crystal Palace will travel to Burnley on Saturday while Liverpool will host Watford on Sunday.

Didn't think yesterday was too bad shame we didn't get that pen but good team performance #cpfc— Laura Guest (@Lauraguest01) October 30, 2016
Remy has to be close to being on the bench. We need to play two up front. #cpfc— John McGovern (@TheGoverner99) October 30, 2016

Only 1 point to mention after yesterday's game... stonewall pen on Wilf, Cann then gets sent off, could be 3-3, different game! #cpfc— Götze (@Jack212x) October 30, 2016
It would be quite nice if Palace could play reasonably well for more than just one half after all it's a game of two halves. #cpfc— richard foster (@rcfoster) October 30, 2016
