Liverpool Too Good for Crystal Palace

Liverpool kept their Premier League title hopes alive with a thrilling 3-1 victory against Selhurst Park.

The visitors blew Palace away in the first half-hour and were forced to hang on in the second.

Virgil van Dijk opened the score eight minutes in with a spectacular header from Andy Robertson’s corner.

Robertson provided the assist for Alex Oxlade-cool Chamberlain’s finish to double Liverpool’s lead.

Liverpool, on the other hand, ended up depending on goalkeeper Alisson Becker to secure the victory.

On either side of half-time, the Brazilian made outstanding saves from Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Odsonne Edouard, while Conor Gallagher headed a great chance past.

Finally, Palace were rewarded for their efforts with a fantastic move in which Jeffrey Schlupp and Mateta set up Edouard for a tap-in.

Alisson was once again required to maintain his side’s lead and turn Olise’s creative lob behind.

However, Liverpool’s two-goal advantage was restored controversially a minute from time when a penalty was awarded following a lengthy VAR intervention for Vicente Guaita’s block on Diogo Jota.

To Klopp’s relief, Fabinho sent Guaita the wrong way from the spot to seal the points.
