Crystal Palace host Cardiff today brimming with confidence after their stunning, come-from-behind 3-2 victory at Manchester City.

It was a completely unexpected result with Palace having won just two of their previous 11 games but, with one of them coming against Leicester the week before, Roy Hodgson's men have momentum.

They will look to build on that as they take on a very different kind of opponent in Neil Warnock's Cardiff.

Midfielder Luka Milivojevic, who scored Palace's third goal at City from the spot, said: "It will be a totally different game. Saturday was a massive three points but to score three goals to win against Man City, I am so proud. That gives you a lot of confidence and we are now going to play the next one.

They don't give you many opportunities, they don't give you much space - I think you can say you deserve (to win).

"We defended well over 90 minutes because that is the way we decided to play against them and it worked until the end.

"I am so happy for the team, the coaching staff and the fans."
