Liverpool vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Premier League latest goals and updates after Eberechi Eze scores early

Premier League preview wrap – Who will blink first? Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal on title hunt

Liverpool host Crystal Palace in the Premier League for Sunday’s earlier kick off with the possibilty of moving back into first place should they triumph at Anfield.

The Reds, who have suffered a couple of disappointing results after a 2-2 draw against Manchester United and a 3-0 defeat to Atalanta in the Europa League, will hope to get back to winning ways as some of their key players make returns from injury. Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold could feature today but Jurgen Klopp would prefer dominate the Eagles and not risk them if possible.

Palace meanwhile have not won any of their previous five league games and were easily beaten by Manchester City last time out despite goals from Jean-Philippe Mateta and Odsonne Edouard. Follow all the action from Anfield below plus get the latest odds and tips right here:


30’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

How has that stayed out! Robertson produces a magnificent run and cross from the left and Diaz is flying in at the far post – his mid-air volley is bouncing down and up and heading in, but Henderson somehow produces a brilliant reflex hand to paw it away! Konate heads the corner over the bar.

It was Endo, meanwhile, who hit the bar a minute beforehand.

28’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

Liverpool almost force an equaliser! A scramble off a corner sees Van Dijk and Salah both trying to toepoke in and eventually there’s both a shot and a ricochet which bounces up and off the crossbar – somehow it stays out and Palace clear.

26’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

Jurgen Klopp has been a picture of frustration for most of this first half. A bit better from the Reds now as Salah frees Nunez into the box and Jones eventually wins a corner – good defending from Munoz twice there.

Diaz then bursts between both Munoz and Andersen but the former just about does enough to lean into the winger and allow Henderson to collect.

22’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

A quarter of the game gone and just the one shot from Liverpool so far. Palace well on top in terms of what they are doing with the ball and creating far more openings with their movement and speed of play.

Lerma is down for Palace now and needing a bit of attention.

18’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

Very, very, very nearly 2-0. Virgil van Dijk slips over as he looks to clear a simple ball and Mateta races through on goal. He clips his shot over Alisson Becker and it’s bouncing in – until Andy Robertson sprints back and just, just manages to clear the ball off the line.

Must have been centimetres in it.

GOAL! 14’ – Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace

Eze has Palace ahead and it’s such a soft goal to concede – really well worked from the visitors!

Palace’s back three is super tight and narrow, making it tough for Liverpool to get passes into feet in the final third. Another attempt is cut out and Palace break down the left, Mitchell’s cut-back eventually arriving at a totally unmarked Ebe Eze who sidefoots home past Alisson!

10’ – Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

Robertson and Diaz break at pace down the left and some one-touch passing feeds Darwin Nunez. He opens his body for a first-time shot, but he’s slightly too far out to really trouble Henderson and it’s comfortably saved.

Jugen Klopp has 13 wins against Palace, meanwhile – more than against any other opponent.

6’ – Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

Salah tries to link with Mac Allister and get forward for the first time but Lerma, left of a back three these days with Palace’s injuries, comes across and slides into a good challenge.

Early possession for the hosts but Palace in a very fixed shape, 5-4-1 out of possession and then quick to push on Olise, Eze and the wingbacks when the counter.

2’ – Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

No margin for error for Liverpool, then. Eze and Olise back in tandem will be a real poser for them though – and Alisson is immediately called into action to clear a cross from the left. Eze then rolls infield and strikes on target, but it’s soft and saved.

1’ – Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

Anfield observes an impeccable minute’s silence for the 35th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

After the referee’s whistle, we’re underway.
