LIVERPOOL DIAZ RESCUES 10-MAN LIVERPOOL FROM DEFEAT AGAINST PALACE
Liverpool had the majority of the ball in the first half, but Wilfried Zaha scored after Eberechi Eze’s brilliant pass to give Palace the lead.
Despite being keen to make a mark in front of The Kop, expensive attacker Nunez was rightfully dismissed by referee Paul Tierney after 57 minutes after he headbutted a Palace player in response to a nudge from Joachim Andersen, knocking him to the ground.
Four minutes later, Liverpool reacted defiantly with a superb equalizer from Diaz, darting in from the flank before firing a right-foot effort past Vicente Guaita.
Thus began the unavoidable siege,
Following the expected siege, Mo Salah and the replacement Fabio Carvalho missed the mark.
Zaha, though, missed a goal-scoring opportunity for Palace when he hit the far post instead of the goal, meaning Liverpool’s two-game winless streak continues.
