Liverpool gets closer to Manchester City

Yesterday we posted an article about the draw of Manchester City against Southampton. That match ended in a 1-1 draw. Manchester City handed Liverpool the perfect opportunity to bring some sort of excitement back in the Premier League title race. To get back into the title race Liverpool had to start with a victory against Crystal Palace. In this article we talk about the battle at Selhurst Park between Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Early goal to get open the match

Something the big teams always need is an early goal. Especially against good and well organised teams as Crystal Palace. When the goal stays out for too long, Palace is a team to get something over the line. Liverpool was extremely happy when Virgil van Dijk opened the score in the 8th minute. He headed a corner by Robertson directly into Crystal Palace’ goal. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain doubled the lead in the 32nd minute, giving Liverpool a 0-2 lead at halftime.

Second half

Early in the second half, Odsonne Edouard got a goal back for Crystal Palace. With the lead only being one goal, Liverpool had to stay on point to avoid getting a draw. They managed to keep Crystal Palace away from their goal. Late in the game, the referee got told by VAR to give Liverpool a penalty, for a foul made on Diogo Jota. In the absence of Mohamed Salah, it was Fabinho who got to take the penalty. The Brazilian defender got behind the ball and scored the final goal of the match. A great 1-3 victory for Liverpool, which decreased the gap to Man City to 9 points. Liverpool has a game in hand on Man City, so they could still do it. They need a little magic and support, so book your Liverpool tickets now online.
