Premier League News: Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira talks about his side’s 1-1 draw against Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday, 15 August.
He stressed the importance of staying calm while playing at Anfield and believes his players are carrying out their plans well.
Crystal Palace found it difficult to get out of their own turf early in the game and relied heavily on the counter-attack. It worked in the 32nd minute as Eberechi Eze controlled the ball well and passed the ball to Wilfried Zaha, who scored past Alisson Becker.
Palace remained solid and were helped by Darwin Nunez’s red card in the 57th minute for a header from Joachim Andersen. Luis Diaz then scored a fine equalizer in the 61st minute but the Reds had to settle for a point. Speaking after the game, Vieira praised his team.
“We are very happy with the point. Overall I think Liverpool had chances, we had some good chances. But I’m happy with the point. It’s not easy to stay calm here. With the supporters and the atmosphere, we managed the situation very well. We had to be calm and concentrate on what we wanted to do and we did it.”
“Our plan was executed by the players. We don’t show any frustration. We stayed calm and we made it very difficult for them. The first 15-20 minutes were a bit challenging running behind our back line, but we managed to defend it pretty well.”
