Liverpool only drew 1-1 to Crystal Palace, this Monday (15), for the close of the 2nd round of the Premier League
O Liverpool continues without winning in Premier League! This Monday (15th), the reds received the Crystal Palace at Anfield, for the closing of the 2nd round, and they only tied for 1 to 1.
this is just the 4th time since the beginning of the “era Premier League“, in 1992, that the red team did not get a single victory in the first rounds.
The team’s mission Jürgen Klopp it started to get very complicated in the 32nd minute of the 1st time, when the Londoners opened the scoring with a deadly counterattack.
After the brazilian fool Fabinho, zaha received at the limit of offside, took off like an arrow and hit the exit and Alisson to note.
In the 2nd half, Liverpool went all out, but saw the situation get worse after a pre-prepared attack by the forward Darwin Núñez.
provoked by defender Andersenthe Uruguayan reacted by headbutting the opponent and correctly received a straight red card.
Shortly thereafter, however, the reds sought the tie thanks to a magic roll of Luis Diaz.
The Colombian took the ball from the left side of the penalty area, feinted several defenders in series and hit beautifully to score a great goal!
The goal cheered up the home team, who went on the attack and almost turned in Salah and Fábio Carvalho. However, the tie persisted until the end.
With the result, Liverpool saw the two points and is only in 12th placement of Premier League.
Crystal Palace, on the other hand, adds its 1st point and now it’s on 16th position.
The guy: Luis Diaz
The striker can say that he was largely responsible for Liverpool’s pursuit of an equalizer at Anfield.
With reds playing with one less and suffering against the good defense of Palace, it was up to Luis Díaz to decide “alone”.
Playing on the left side, he stitched up the defenders, cleared the play alone and hit hard from outside the area.
The ball made a beautiful curve, “fled” from the goalkeeper Guaita and swelled the nets, making the red crowd explode with joy.
If it weren’t for the Colombian’s genius, Liverpool would hardly have rescued the dot.
It was bad: Darwin Núñez
The striker hired at the golden weight greatly damaged his team this Monday.
In the 12th minute, after being provoked by Andersen, he headbutted the Crystal Palace defender.
Referee Paul Tierney had no doubts and showed the Uruguayan a straight red card.
Darwin still complained a lot, but there was no way around it: he had to go to the shower early at Anfield…
