West Ham fans were pleased with the performance of one of their former players on Monday night, but they were also pretty angry the Hammers opted to let him leave the club two years ago.

Crystal Palace lost 2-0 at home to high-flyers Liverpool on the night. And, despite going down to 10 men, put up a much better fight than their London counterparts, who lost 4-0 to the Reds on opening weekend.

The Hammers have lost both of their opening games under new boss Manuel Pellegrini this season and things aren't expected to get any easier, with matches against Arsenal, Wolves, Everton, Chelsea and Manchester United up next in the Premier League.
