Liverpool vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Latest Premier League updates
The Reds look to carry over momentum from their thrilling Champions League win against AC Milan midweek, with Patrick Vieira’s Eagles visiting Anfield

Welcome to The Independent’s live coverage of this Premier League clash between Liverpool and Crystal Palace at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be bouncing coming into this one, just three days after beating AC Milan in a Champions League thriller. The Reds have made a brilliant start to their 2021/22 campaign with ten points from their first four games. Slowly, people are beginning to talk about them as title contenders after the club took a backseat during the summer transfer window.

But this afternoon they will have to deal with a Crystal Palace side buoyed by their convincing 3-0 win over Tottenham last weekend. The Eagles took full advantage of Spurs being reduced to 10 men as they picked up their first league victory of coach Patrick Vieira’s reign.

New boy Odsonne Edouard made history on his debut against Tottenham when he became the fastest substitute goalscorer in Premier League history. Can he push on from that superb start this afternoon? It’s a tall order for Palace, but they won here in the not-so-distant past when they claimed a 2-1 victory in April 2017. Having said that, nine successive defeats since then do not bode well for the visitors.

Follow live updates from Anfield below as the Reds look to keep pace at the top of the table in what promises to be a thrilling title race.


Liverpool 0 – 0 Crystal Palace

Liverpool 0 – 0 Crystal Palace

3 mins: Chance! Conor Gallagher belts a free kick into the box and Christian Benteke wins the first header. Diogo Jota fails to clear the ball properly and it comes out to Gallagher. He flicks it back into the box where James Milner and Alisson Becker struggle to communicate. Neither player goes for the ball and it bounces over the goalkeeper. Alisson is left scrambling but he manages to flap the ball onto the post on out behind for a corner.
