Zak Whitbread and Martyn Waghorn put the Foxes 2-0 up before Theo Robinson replied, but David Nugent then came off the bench to score twice and secure a victory that lifts Leicester back up to third in the table.

"It was an outstanding start to the game for us. I think that's the best we've played," said Pearson.

"We totally dominated and to get two goals in that period was fully deserved.

"I was a bit disappointed that we were only one goal ahead at half-time, but I think we kept our composure well in the second half."

Pearson also singled out Waghorn, adding: "Over the last two or three weeks he's put in some very good performances for us.

"He's certainly contributed in a very positive manner and I think scoring his first goal, when we beat Ipswich, took a bit of pressure off him."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

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.
