Crystal Palace returned to winning ways with a 2-1 triumph at Liverpool.

Scott Dann's late headed winner against his boyhood club ended Palace's four-game winless run.

The Eagles claimed a second successive Anfield victory to move above their opponents to eighth in the table and inflict Jurgen Klopp's first defeat as Reds manager.

Alan Pardew's side started brightly, and in the 21st minute took the lead through Yannick Bolasie who blasted in a fierce left-foot strike after Emre Can failed to clear Wilfried Zaha's cross.

Wayne Hennessey pushed out Christian Benteke's header as Liverpool grew back into the game and the Reds were rewarded with an equaliser from a Philippe Coutinho drive on 42 minutes.

The hosts pressed for a winner after the break, with James McArthur clearing sub Dejan Lovren's header off the line before Benteke wasted two good opportunities.

Palace went agonisingly close to scoring again as Zaha beat three Reds defenders with a strong run down the right and his cross to an unmarked Bakary Sako saw the former Wolves man fire into the side netting.

Jason Puncheon forced Simon Mignolet into a decent stretching save as the match became end-to-end with both sides gunning for a winner.

Eight minutes from time, Palace made it 2-1 when Dann nodded Yohan Cabaye's corner in at the second bite of the cherry as Mignolet could only parry his first attempt.
