With home advantage, Crystal Palace played fiercely and was very willing to get close, making it difficult for Liverpool players to launch an attack. After about 20 minutes, the “Eagles” rose strongly and were even the team that created the first dangerous opportunity.

In the 27th minute, Ayew accelerated on the right wing and then stretched as if to let Lerma finish. Only the excellence of goalkeeper Alisson helped Liverpool escape defeat.


Liverpool played weakly in the first half


Just 2 minutes later, Van Dijk fouled Edouard in the penalty area and the referee immediately awarded a penalty to Crystal Palace. But after reviewing VAR, the referee reversed the decision because Will Hughes fouled Endo earlier. The first half ended without any goals scored.


It wasn’t until the second half that fans saw the goal. In the 53rd minute, Mateta fell in Liverpool’s penalty area and after reviewing VAR, the referee decided to give Crystal Palace a penalty kick. On the 11m mark, Mateta himself stepped up to successfully open the score for Crystal Palace.

In a deadlocked match, coach Jurgen Klopp brought Harvey Elliott onto the field and this change immediately took effect. Just 1 minute after appearing on the field, Elliott caused Ayew to foul and received a second yellow card to leave the field.



Having an advantage, Liverpool quickly found an equalizer. In the 76th minute, from a jump in the penalty area, Salah hit Clyne’s foot and changed direction, causing goalkeeper Johnstone to be helpless.

The drama climaxed at the end of the match. Right in stoppage time, Elliott ran the ball straight into the middle and fired a dangerous shot to seal a comeback victory for Liverpool.

This is the time when Crystal Palace is in decline. In the last 8 rounds, they only won 1. That was a 2-0 victory at one of the weakest clubs this season, Burnley. On the other hand, Crystal Palace has lost 5/8 recent rounds. Most recently, they just lost 0-2 at home to Bournemouth. This loss is Crystal Palace’s third consecutive defeat at home and pushed them to 14th place in the rankings. It is no coincidence that coach Roy Hodgson is becoming the leading candidate to be the next captain to lose his job in the Premier League.



Meanwhile, Liverpool is still maintaining high form. The 2-0 victory at Sheffield Utd in midweek was their third consecutive win and fifth unbeaten match in all competitions. At this time, The Kop has climbed to 2nd place on the rankings, only 2 points behind top team Arsenal, while 4 points more than Man City. After a poor season, Juergen Klopp is bringing Liverpool back to a winning trajectory like in previous years.

In addition to the momentum of sublimation, Crystal Palace has also been a familiar prey for Liverpool in recent years. Specifically, in the last 9 trips to this opponent’s stadium, The Kop has won 8 victories, only being held to a draw once. In that situation, this will be the match that Liverpool wins to continue competing for the top spot with Arsenal.
