Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis has stated that he doesn’t have any special plans drawn out for their clash against Liverpool.

The Eagles will take on the Reds in the Premier League at Selhurst Park on Monday evening, as Liverpool look to continue their title push.

"We will play the way, we play. We will do what we have always done and it's been successful with the group that we have got”, Pulis said in a press conference today.

“We are very pleased with the way players have been playing over the past three to four months and I don't see any reason to change it."


The 56-year-old feels that Liverpool’s title challenge this season has been helped by the fact that they are not involved in Europe which has allowed them to keep their players fresh throughout the season.

"The biggest advantage for Liverpool is the fact that they didn't have Europe to worry about so they could focus from week to week, and that certainly helps without a question of a doubt."

The Welshman praised Brendan Rodgers’ work at Liverpool and believes that the Northern Irishman has stamped his authority on the club.

"Brendan has done a wonderful job there. He has put his identity on the football club which I always enjoy."

Pulis has received the Manager of the Month award for the month of April and is one of the top contenders for the Manager of the Year award.
