19 January 2019

Liverpool secured a dramatic 4-3 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday, leaving fans feeling relieved at the full-time whistle.


Liverpool 4-3 Crystal Palace

Premier League, Anfield
January 19, 2019

Goals: Salah 46′, 75′, Firmino 53′, Mane 90+3′; Townsend 34′, Tomkins 65′, Meyer 90+5′


A chaotic 90 minutes saw seven goals hit the back of the net as Liverpool secured a dramatic Premier League victory over Palace.

A frustrating and unimaginative first half saw the Reds punished on the counter by Andros Townsend, ensuring a turnaround job was required in the second period.

Liverpool didn’t have to wait long, however, for their fortunes to turn around as Mohamed Salah levelled the scores by spectacularly latching onto Virgil van Dijk’s deflected shot moments after play resumed.

What followed was nothing short of chaos, whereby the Reds took the lead through Roberto Firmino before the Eagles again asked more questions of Liverpool’s ability to find a match-winning goal.

The answer then came in the form of Salah notching his 50th Premier League goal and Sadio Mane finding the back of the net late on.

The result means a seven-point lead atop of the table was still secured, at least temporarily, and here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.
