Liverpool showed the stuffs of champion again, as they collected another 3 points at Selhurst Park. It must be said, this Liverpool side are very good at managing games of football, they do put in a lot of mental strength, and every one of the players seems to be on the same wavelength in every aspect of the play.
Having said that, Liverpool were very lucky to get maximum in this particular game, they were not at their brilliant best and always second to Palace in all ramifications, most especially in the first half.
Liverpool improved in the second half and they took the lead through usual suspect, Sadio Mane.
Palace are a team that doesn’t like letting Liverpool have it all their own way. Wilfred Zaha produced the equalizer in the 81st minute.
Liverpool got the winner in the 86th minute of the match, a goalmouth scramble and Firmino was left unattended to in the box. The corner from Arnold was not dealt with, the ball bounced off from multiple players before it ended up in front of Firmino, and the Brazillian could not miss.
The game should act as a wake-up call to Liverpool, in this League, there is no room for complacency. Palace had more shot on target than Liverpool, but Liverpool were more clinical, and the quality of their finishing brought them another 3 important points.
