The Reds were leading 3-0 with 35 minutes remaining and continued to flood forward in pursuit of more goals to narrow Manchester City’s superior goal difference at Selhurst Park on Monday.
It smacked of a bit of arrogance to me. I just thought that got through to Tony and to the team and as we saw it was one of the great Premier League comebacks
However, Palace pegged Liverpool back courtesy of three goals in the final 11 minutes to leave City needing a point against West Ham United to secure the Premier League title.
And former Palace forward Bright felt Liverpool were arrogant against Tony Pulis’s side, resulting in one of the greatest comebacks of the Premier League era.
“I observed after every goal the Liverpool boys grabbing the ball, running to the halfway line and putting the ball on the spot. I thought to myself, ‘obviously they’re going for goals’,” Bright told talkSPORT.
“We’ve got a great record at home under Tony Pulis since he took over and not conceded too many. It smacked of a bit of arrogance to me. I just thought that got through to Tony and to the team and as we saw it was one of the great Premier League comebacks.
“For me I think the players sensed it [the arrogance], Tony had a chat and it changed. The most important thing for Brendan was to come away from Selhurst with three points. Then you’re in with a chance of doing it on points never mind goal difference. You’ve got to go into the last game with real hope.”
