Liverpool captain, Jordan Henderson believes his side were ruthless on the pitch against Palace.
Henderson speaking to BT sports shortly after the came said despite dominating the greater period of the tie, the reds appeared sloppy.
“I thought we were ruthless today and took our chances which is always important. We dominated the game for large periods but I still thought we were sloppy at times. Overall, we’re delighted with the performance.
To finish this week off with the win after midweek is important and we managed to do that.
“It was coming I felt as over the last few games we have had chances and not taken them which has cost us at times.”
Was it Liverpool’s best performance this season?
“In some ways but we don’t just look at the scoreline. I thought we were very good midweek and again today so we just need to keep the momemtum going and work hard.
“In the first half they had one or two half chances – a little on the counter-attack. They are always going to create something but we limited that today. We managed the game well in the second half.
“Overall, the performance level, we have to be happy. Now we have a week leading to the next game. Then another tough test again.”
