Christian Benteke says he respects his former club and chose to not show them up after scoring his goals.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three points from Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at Anfield in the Premier League.

1. Liverpool slip up again 

Where would Liverpool be now if they could stop slipping up against bottom-half clubs? Given that a win here would have put them two points behind title-chasing Tottenham, it doesn't take a wild leap of imagination. After two hard-fought wins away at Stoke and West Bromwich Albion, it seemed that Jurgen Klopp's side had cracked it. Apparently not.

Palace are Liverpool's Kryptonite, but there are encouraging signs for Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Crystal Palace have one of the best offensive lines in the Premier League.
Liverpool manager J├╝rgen Klopp believes Liverpool don't need to buy Joe Hart as they already have two top class goalkeepers.
Shaka Hislop believes Joe Hart is not the worthy candidate to replace Simon Mignolet between the posts at Anfield.
Steve Nicol hopes Jurgen Klopp spends many years at Liverpool but finds it unlikely that Anfield will be the last coaching stop for the German.

This weekend, as a place in the Champions League beckons, Liverpool face a team whose very name can bring a shudder of anxiety to the most stoic of their supporters: Crystal Palace are coming to town.

Last season, Palace inflicted the first defeat of Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool career at Anfield. The season before that, they ruined Steven Gerrard's farewell party, beating the Reds 3-1 in their own home. And then, of course, there was "Crystanbul," the miraculous comeback in 2014 that saw Brendan Rodgers'...

In-form Palace and Townsend ready to face Liverpool

Kolo Toure believes Palace's Wilfried Zaha can have a similar impact for Ivory Coast as Didier Drogba.
Sam Allardyce laments Palace conceding early against Leicester, but is supremely proud of their response to snatch a point.

Crystal Palace's recent upturn in form has been remarkable. Since the 4-0 loss to Sunderland on Feb. 4 and subsequent, somewhat forgotten 1-0 defeat to Stoke City, Palace have gone on a run that has yielded a total of 16 points from 21 available -- a return that has put the club on the brink of Premier League safety when many had written the side off.

Manager Sam Allardyce made it clear following his first few games at Palace that the character the team previously exhibited -- the relentless, fearless...

Crystal Palace show a backbone in fighting back for point vs. Leicester

Sam Allardyce laments Palace conceding early against Leicester, but is supremely proud of their response to snatch a point.

Crystal Palace showed great character by fighting back from two down to collect a point against an in-form Leicester side.

Positives

A 2-0 deficit in the past might have looked insurmountable, but Palace have developed a backbone and some bite. Where the players would previously have allowed their heads to drop, they instead reacted immediately and could even have won the game.

Negatives

The defensive error which lead to the opening goal was, according to Sam Allardyce, the result of players forgetting...

Sunderland thrashing the moment Palace bought into Big Sam's plans

Sam Allardyce reflects on Crystal Palace's remarkable run of results over the week, taking down both Chelsea and Arsenal.

There are moments during a season that can define the outcome of those nine and a half months of toil, whether it's an unexpected win or an unbelievable defeat, the reaction to key moments can have a conclusive effect on the rest of the season.

One of Crystal Palace's defining moments this season could easily have been the win over Southampton at the beginning of December. Palace had struggled in the months beforehand and, with Alan Pardew under pressure following a shambolic 5-4 defeat to Swansea,...
