Grant McCann had fired the home side into an early lead and they maintained their advantage until the 80th minute when two goals in the space of three minutes kept Palace top and stretched their unbeaten run to 13 games.

Holloway said: "You never say never with the lads that I have in that dressing room and it is a great place to be at the minute.

"We were terrific from start to finish and I always believed that if we could get ourselves level a second goal might follow.

"That's exactly how it turned out and the manner of our second goal, which started from a punch from my keeper, was fantastic.

"Peterborough defended really well and Darren (Ferguson) will be disappointed because he won't feel he owed us anything, but that stats will tell you that we deserved the points.

"Someone said we are showing Championship-winning form, but that can soon change. We just have to try to keep it going."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
