LG PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: CRYSTAL PALACE DEFEAT NEW LOOK LIVERPOOL
The League Managers Association five-man Performance of the Week panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson, Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, were in agreement that this week the LG Performance of the Week Award should go to Crystal Palace following their excellent 2-1 victory against Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League on Sunday 8th November 2015.
The experienced and highly distinguished panel has managed a combined total of over 6,000 competitive matches in professional football.
Crystal Palace manager, Alan Pardew, will receive a specially commissioned trophy made by world renowned silversmiths and LMA Partner, Thomas Lyte of London, in a presentation to commemorate the award.
Pardew’s Palace became the first side to defeat Liverpool under new manager, Jurgen Klopp, as a first half strike from Yannick Bolasie and a late winner from Scott Dann secured the three points and propelled Crystal Palace above Liverpool in the Premier League.
