Bolasie: Pardew's Tactics Were Spot On

8 November 2015

Yannick Bolasie was pleased Crystal Palace were able to secure the three points against Liverpool at Anfield, stopping a run of four games without a win. The winger, who opened the scoring in the 2-1 victory, felt that manager Alan Pardew's tactics played a big role in helping the Eagles to the win.

"I think we started off really fast today and the gaffer's tactics were spot on," he said. "Credit to the team, we started off well and we got an early goal. Obviously Liverpool came back into it, but we scored the second and managed to hold out for the victory."

Palace have now won their last three league games against the Reds, scoring eight goals in the process. Bolasie has played a massive role in each of those victories, but he credits Pardew's tactics with being the reason behind the performances.

"It's down to the gaffer's tactics," he said. "He knows them inside out. He always gets it spot on [against Liverpool]. We know how to exploit their weaknesses. We've been working on it all week - knowing how we'll get our chances to score goals - and it's come off for us today.

"We've been on a bumpy ride, but we've got our targets, and I think today three points was massive for us."

Bolasie seems to have begun to get back to the incredible form he was showing last season after a slow start to this campaign.

"Personally, I'm starting to feel like myself again, after I had a slow start this season, so I'm looking forward to that continuing," he added.
