Eagles captain targets shock Anfield win over Liverpool
SKIPPER Mile Jedinak is backing the Eagles to cause an upset ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Anfield.
Crystal Palace travel to second-placed Liverpool having taken only three points from their opening half a dozen Premier League games, a start which has left the newly-promoted Eagles second bottom of the table.
But the big Aussie has faith his team-mates can pull off what would be the biggest shock of the season so far and leave Merseyside with an away win.
He said: “I tend to back myself in any situation.
“We are going to be up against it.
“We’re always up against it at this level, so you have got to try to believe and that's what I’ll be reiterating to the group - having that belief and drive to go and do a job and try to get something out of the game.”
Jedinak was also effusive towards the travelling Eagles fans who cheered their side on from start to finish in last weekend’s latest reverse, a 2-0 loss at Southampton.
He said: “They were fantastic. I can't credit them enough.
“They have been like this for some time now.
“It is fantastic to have that behind you, because as players in these sort of periods when you’re not winning it is always nice knowing we have got their support always.
“I can’t thank them enough.
“We’ll put this one (Southampton) behind us. We'll have a game plan that we'll practice throughout the week.
“It’s just hoping we can nail it and get a result up there, because we have to try and back ourselves.”
