Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray had a topsy-turvy game on Saturday.

The Eagles forward, who was making a rare start as injuries had ravaged Alan Pardew options up top, scored twice in his sides 3-1 win but also received a red card in the second half.

In the video above, Pardew shares his delight over Murray’s performance despite his accumulation of fouls which saw him get two yellow cards and put Palace under pressure for the final stages of what turned out to be a pretty routine win.
