CRYSTAL PALACE BOSS Alan Pardew struggled to hide his anger after his side’s 2-1 loss at home to Liverpool yesterday.

Amid a tense interview with Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves, Pardew criticised the officials for awarding the visitors a disputed last-minute penalty.

“If it had been us, we wouldn’t have got it,” Pardew added, while claiming Shreeves was trying to “antagonise” him and criticising Palace’s second-half substitutes.

The 54-year-old manager also accused Liverpool striker Christian Benteke of diving and defended Irish centre-back Damien Delaney, who conceded the late penalty.

Following yesterday’s result, the Eagles sit 15th on 33 points, with Pardew’s side now without a win in 12 Premier League matches.
