Bolasie Looks Forward To Liverpool

2 November 2015

Yannick Bolasie is confident that if Palace play like they did against Manchester United then they can cause Liverpool real problems next Sunday.

The Eagles put in a brilliant team display at home to the Red Devils and were desperately unlucky not to take all three points from a game that finished 0-0. Bolasie struck the crossbar and his teammates Scott Dann, Damien Delaney and Yohan Cabaye all had gilt-edged opportunities to put the red and blue army ahead, but all of them went begging.

Despite the misfortune in front of goal, praise has been heaped on a Palace side that dominated proceedings and nearly matched United for possession at Selhurst Park.

"If we play like we did today, we'll trouble a lot of teams, and I'm looking forward to next week," Bolasie said at full time, already looking ahead to Anfield next weekend.

"My favourite team!" He laughed, when asked about putting in a performance against the Reds. "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."

The winger, who is currently wearing a bandage on his head to protect stitches sustained in an aerial collision at Manchester City last week, has had a stop-start campaign so far, but Bolasie feels he is getting back to the form that made him one of the most dangerous wide men in the league late last season.

"I think it's made me tougher," he said of the head injury. "And I think I grew into the game [against United]. Credit to the gaffer, he's let me grow into some of the games. 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."
