“This Liverpool side are a new breed” – Liverpool fans react to 2-1 win at Crystal Palace

Liverpool made it hard for themselves but they emerged as 2-1 victors at Crystal Palace, and fans lauded the ‘mentality giants’ once more.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Selhurst Park
November 23, 2019

Goals: Zaha 82′; Mane 49′, Firmino 85′

The Reds were back in action following the international break where a tense tussle ensued, but all three points returned to Merseyside at the conclusion of the 90 minutes.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side started poorly having failed to assert themselves on and off the ball, and Crystal Palace almost came up trumps before VAR intervened to rule out James Tomkins’ headed effort on the cusp of half time.

And it was the required wake-up call as Sadio Mane found the net four minutes into the second term with what was the first shot on target for the Reds.

But Liverpool’s defiance to fight for all three points was again on show as merely three minutes after Palace had levelled the scores through Wilfried Zaha, Roberto Firmino capitalised on a scramble in the box to send the Reds back into the lead.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the win on Twitter, Facebook and This Is Anfield’s forums.


VAR came to the rescue but there was no hiding from the poor performance in the first 45…

“Typical of our season and first halves, now awaiting a typical second half and a typical end result.”

But the response was immediate as Mane bore the fruits of Liverpool’s rise in intensity…

“Much better intensity to the second half, rewarded with a goal!”

And while the Reds again made it hard for themselves, the mentality monsters were back in town…

“I’ve been impressed with us today. Any other away game where we grind our results.”

FilthyBloke on the forums.

“Mentality Giants once again…will not lie down.”

Brian Jenkins on Facebook.


Overall, there was plenty to celebrate as the Reds notched their 12th win of the campaign…

“This team, coach and fans are not to be denied! End of! Up the unbeatable unbearable Reds!”
