“Big fighting spirit”, “Feels like much more than 3 points” – Fans react to Crystal Palace 1–2 Liverpool

Liverpool completed an impressive second-half comeback to claim a huge three points with a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace, much to supporters’ delight.

Crystal Palace 1–2 Liverpool

Premier League, Selhurst Park
March 31, 2018

Goals: Milivojevic (pen) 13′; Mane 48′, Salah 84′

The Reds arrived at Selhurst Park looking to pick up from where they left off before the international break, and Klopp’s side did that with a hard-fought win over the Eagles.

Luka Milivojevic’s early penalty gave the hosts a half-time lead after Loris Karius fouled Wilfried Zaha for the spot-kick and Sadio Mane saw his header disallowed for offside in a frustrating first half.

But shortly after the restart Mane wasn’t to be denied, as the Senegalese drew the Reds level after converting with a sharp finish from James Milner’s ball across the face of goal.

And just when the game seemed destined to peter out to a draw, man-of-the-moment Mohamed Salah stepped up to become the hero yet again as he finished from close range to give the Reds all three points.

It was a priceless victory for Liverpool and here’s how supporters reacted to the win across social media and on our forums.
