Before finding the back of the net, the Senegalese striker almost found the back of the net when he deflected Virgil Van Dijk’ goal-bound header but it, unfortunately, went out for a goal kick.

As the match looks like it was settling for a draw, Liverpool’s Egyptian forward Mohammed Salah broke the Eagles heart when he found the back of the net in the 84th minute to bring his goal tally to 37 for the Reds in all competitions this season.

There is one player whose performance for the Reds gladdens the Merseyside Faithfuls — Netherland defender Van Virgil Dijk.

During the course of the game, The most expensive defender had to switch his position with Joel Matip so as to reduce the damage which could be caused by palace’s striker Christian Benteke who was a nightmare to Joel Matip.
