Souare could make Palace debut

Crystal Palace defender Pape Souare could make his debut in the FA Cup fifth round against Liverpool on Saturday after the Senegalese had a work permit application approved.

Souare joined from Lille last month and has been cleared to play in the game at Selhurst Park but Eagles captain Mile Jedinak remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Yaya Sanogo (hamstring) and James McArthur (thigh) are also struggling to be fit in time while Shola Ameobi is still regaining fitness and unlikely to feature.

Alan Pardew's side host an in-form Liverpool hoping for a repeat of their 3-1 win at Selhurst Park in November.

The Eagles also dealt a heavy blow to the Reds' title hopes in May last season, when they came from 3-0 behind to draw 3-3.

"We take confidence from our recent record, without a doubt," said assistant boss Keith Millen.

"The last two times they've come to Selhurst, they've had two tough games.

"I'm sure they feel they're in for a real tough one again tomorrow and we need to make sure we don't disappoint them."

Pardew is expected to overcome his illness in time for Saturday and the fixture will bring back fond memories for the Palace boss after he scored the Eagles' extra-time winner to beat Liverpool 4-3 in the 1990 FA Cup semi-final.

"The fans will remember that goal and getting to the final," Millen said.

"Those are the emotions you go through in the FA Cup and we want another day like that tomorrow.

"I was watching that game and I remember the occasion and getting to Wembley.

"We feel we're getting close to Wembley ourselves now so it's a big incentive."

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard will be missing from the squad after being ruled out for two to three weeks with a hamstring problem.

With Lucas Leiva already out for at least a month with a thigh problem it means Jordan Henderson and Joe Allen are likely to be paired in central midfield.

Henderson has taken on more responsibility since becoming vice-captain this season but may have to accept even more in the coming weeks.

It is debatable whether Gerrard would have started against Palace anyway but, in his absence, Henderson finds himself having to up his game even more.

"To lose Lucas first was a big blow because he has been outstanding for us since he came into the team as that defensive, holding midfielder," said Henderson.

"Obviously Stevie (Gerrard) is a big loss, even though it is not as long (as Lucas), but there are some big games coming up that he might not be involved in.

"But it is another chance for people to come in and show what they are made of and slot straight into the team. Hopefully someone can do that.

"Maybe I need to take more responsibility with those two players gone."

Forward Raheem Sterling, who missed the midweek league win over Tottenham with a foot injury, has to be assessed while youngster Jordon Ibe is cup-tied.

Liverpool exorcise Selhurst Park demons, reach FA Cup quarterfinals

Liverpool exorcised some demons at Selhurst Park by reaching the FA Cup quarterfinals with an impressive win against Crystal Palace.

Brendan Rodgers' side returned to south London in Saturday's late kick-off looking to avoid another horror show at the ground where last season's title dreams went up in smoke before then suffering a 3-1 loss this term.

An early Fraizer Campbell goal had the Reds fearing another nightmare result, yet their dominance eventually told as Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana goals secured a 2-1 comeback win.

Victory keeps alive the dream of Steven Gerrard ending his Liverpool career by holding the FA Cup aloft on his 35th birthday, although for a while it looked like Alan Pardew could be involved in another upset against the Merseyside giants.

The Palace manager's extra-time winner secured the Eagles a famous win against the Reds in the 1990 FA Cup semi-final and he was celebrating again after 15 minutes, when a gaffe from Martin Skrtel allowed Campbell to slot home.

Dwight Gayle could have doubled that lead as half-time approached but that would have been harsh on Liverpool, who had 17 shots over the course of the opening period.

Furthermore, Palace debutant Pape Souare got away with a penalty after taking down Sturridge, who started the comeback four minutes after the break, finishing a fine team move with aplomb.

It was a fantastic volley from the England striker, whose international team-mate Lallana scored what proved to be the 58th minute decider - directing home after Julian Speroni failed to deal with a stinging Mario Balotelli free-kick.

Few could argue with the result as Liverpool impressed from the outset, with Sturridge directing a Lazar Markovic cross wide early on.

Rodgers' side were looking decent but they were almost caught out when Joe Ledley sent a wonderful through ball to Gayle, only for Skrtel to cut out his threatening cross.

It was a timely interception by the Slovakian defender, who undid that good work in the 15th minute.

Skrtel's attempted clearance from a high Ledley ball forwards ended going backwards after a slight nudge from Gayle. The forward chased the loose ball and forced Simon Mignolet into a save, only for the ball to fall kindly for Campbell to slot home.

It was a sucker punch but one Liverpool responded well to.

Speroni did fantastically to prevent Lallana drawing parity after a fine, intricate team move, before Philippe Coutinho tested the Palace goalkeeper in twice quick succession.

Jordan Henderson was the next to call him into action, before Sturridge was left perplexed as to why referee Robert Madley did not point to the spot soon after being brought down by Souare.

The visiting fans certainly let their displeasure known, although that anger almost turned to joy as Joe Allen volleyed just wide, with Coutinho and Markovic having efforts as Pardew's men rode their luck.

Liverpool were in complete control yet would have gone in two-down at the break was it not for Mignolet stopping Gayle.

A two-goal deficit would have harsh and, smelling blood, Balotelli was brought on in place of Markovic at the break.

Palace, too, made a change with Marouane Chamakh replaced by Jason Puncheon, who flashed an effort over within a minute of his introduction.

It was again Liverpool looking the most threatening side and they drew level in some style inside four minutes of the restart.

Allen's ball between the lines found Henderson, whose cute, clipped ball was met by a wonderful left-footed volley by Sturridge.

Palace attempted to go back ahead through Joel Ward and Gayle, although Liverpool were looking confident and went ahead in the 58th minute.

Scott Dann was adjudged to have fouled Balotelli, whose stinging effort from the result free-kick was spilled by Speroni into the path of Lallana.

Palace went with a more attacking approach in search of a leveller but they were struggling to break down the Liverpool defence and create clear-cut chances.

The Reds appeared happy to soak up the pressure and Henderson saw a cross cut out by Scott Dann, before Rickie Lambert had an effort deflect over.

Gayle blazed a late free-kick over but Palace never really looked like drawing level as Palace fell to a second defeat in all competitions under Pardew.
