HIGHLIGHT of Crystal palace vs Liverpool



The Reds had glimpses of goal but didn’t look good enough and risked giving even more presents after defensive calamities in the recent defeat to Real Madrid.

However, it was a good first few minutes for Liverpool and Mohamed Salah threatened to open the scoring with a low shot which landed comfortably wide of the goal line.

Jean-Philippe Mateta nearly hit a nasty back pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold, but some quick reflexes from Alisson ensured the Frenchman couldn’t get enough of his lob.
Diogo Jota soon after sent a vicious volley on goal, but the strike was in the hands of Vicente Guaita into the Palace goal, before Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick hit Jordan Henderson’s surprised head and flew clear of the goal as it seemed predestined. upper corner.

Palace pressure mounted as the half ticked by and the deflection of a Naby Keita cross had its heart in its mouth as it sizzled just wide of Alisson’s post, seconds before Mateta hit the bar after Alexander-Arnold was struck again .


There was still time for another Joel Matip defensive error before the end of the half, with Liverpool once again woefully shaky. Liverpool brought energy early in the second half and Salah fired a delightful try towards the top corner but could only watch the ball break the bar.

Things slowed down after that, however, and the next real shot on goal came ten minutes from time when Cody Gakpo hit Guaita on a ball and sent a jerky shot on goal, but the Dutchman’s shot went wide. finished on the post.

Palace earned their fourth consecutive draw at home but will nullify their missed chances in the first half.
