Clarke expects response against Palace

Steve Clarke has no fears that his side will be left mentally scarred by their mauling from Luis Suarez and has challenged them to prove it against Crystal Palace.

Evans: Outclassed as striker struggles continue

Clarke, the West Bromwich Albion head coach, expects a "big performance" against the Premier League's bottom club at The Hawthorns on Saturday after Suarez's hat trick brought The Baggies' five-match unbeaten run to a halt  with a 4-1 defeat at Anfield.

Such was the domination of Suarez and strike partner Daniel Sturridge that the pair are now being considered as the most dangerous double act in the Premier League, but Clarke does not expect his players to suffer any long-lasting effects from the weekend.

"We have got good experience in the group and I don't expect it to be a problem. I expect a good response and a big performance in what is a big game for us next weekend now," said Clarke.

The visit of Palace, who are without a manager, following the departure of Ian Holloway, is sandwiched in between Anfield and a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea, which makes victory over the Eagles even more important for Clarke.

"We have Crystal Palace at home in the middle of a difficult little run, because after Palace we have to go to Stamford Bridge, which is never an easy place to go," he said.

"So we have to make sure we're right and mentally the players will be fine. They've got good experience of this league and they know how to get results and come back from reverses. Saturday was definitely a reverse.

"I'm not going to hype the game up, but it's against Palace, who at the moment are struggling for a little bit of form.

"We're at home and we've been playing well so we have to put Saturday down hopefully as a blip in what's been otherwise quite an impressive run and we look to bounce back with a good performance and a solid win."

Clarke is awaiting news on the fitness of Morgan Amalfitano with the French midfielder being assessed by medics after limping off at Anfield with a knee injury.
