Pleased with both the result and the performance today.

Most pleasing of all is the fact that the new manager has dropped players and altered the line-up in response to the last game. The thus far unsuccessful Ings/Watkins partnership was shelved, and Buendia was benched. just nice to see things be proactive.

Midfield looks loads better, and Nakamba looks like the player we see one game in five for two games in a row. Substitutions have been effective, and he is changing things during the game too. Defence back to last seasons form also.

All in all very surprised how big a difference under Gerrard thus far.

Man City next and fingers crossed we get something from it. Football taking a back seat for a few weeks now for me as I will be occupied with more urgent matters. My better half will be having surgery on Wednesday following an alarming smear test result.

Hoping for a speedy and successful recovery for your wife AV.

We look like an organised committed team again. Targett showed he doesn't need Joe in front of him to play well, Cash continues to impress, Mings is back. I really think Nakamba is decent, he seems more composed on the ball these days and really puts himself about. Ramsey made Gallagher look bang average. I loved the second goal, it was a brilliant move and it showed the importance of a strong bench with Buendia and El Ghazi involved.

Early days but I have to give Gerrard credit, very much a case of 'so far so good.'
Trying not to get carried  away, but winning 2 in a row does something to you.

If it becomes three in a row we’ll all spontaneously combust

7 & 8s all over the pitch today. Great team performance. Hard to single out anybody for being excellent or poor.

Firstly and most importantly, very best wishes to your partner, AshtonVilla.

Excellent away win. By far and away the best side, in the first half and should have got ourselves further in front. We were smartly setup and well organized, congesting the midfield and stopping Palace get it wide to their main attacking threats. Second half you expect Palace to improve but we helped them along by getting too deep and sloppy in possession; an element of fatigue perhaps? Or just Wolves game flashbacks.

Good team performance. Nakamba has limitations on the ball but broke up play brilliantly and protected the back four really well. Mings & Konsa look more settled, we missed Ramsey when he went off and McGinn ran the show, sublime finish too.

Didn't see the game but that was a cracking second goal we got. Great play by AEG and Buendia and a superb finish from McGinn. Not that it mattered thankfully but Mings went awol for their goal, poor effort from Watkins to block the cross.

Next up, the return of Joe/(Tiger) King....if he's fit. Been missing for a few games in any case was dropped before injury.

Can't offer any insight as I followed the game from afar today but great to get a win somewhere we very rarely win, or anywhere in truth. Good start from Gerrard, long may the perfect record continue
