The Liverpool team didn’t do much from the very beginning of the game, the Reds had difficulty scoring chances in the first half, Joel Matip had the only opportunity, the defender was in the forward position and ran out to meet the goalkeeper, but the guest goalkeeper was ready for such a turn of events and parried blow from Cameroon. The Palace players had even more difficult moments, for the entire first half they delivered only two shots towards the opponent’s goal. Unlike Liverpool, the guests still managed to realize their scoring chance, Wilfried Zaha shot at Townsend, and the midfielder delivered an accurate shot into the near corner – 0:1 in the 34th minute. The first half ended with a minimal advantage of the Eagles. The second half of the match started quite differently, the score was evened in the first seconds, Mohamed Salah took the ball after a rebound and struck into the near corner. Very soon, the Reds celebrated the second goal scored, Naby Keita found Roberto Firmino with an accurate pass, and the Brazilian put Liverpool ahead with an accurate shot into the far corner in the 53rd minute. The Palace players quickly woke up from such a knockdown, after which they rushed to win back the gap from the opponent. James Tomskins managed to return the tied score, the defender jumped the highest when serving from a corner, thereby equalizing the score in the 65th minute. Events in the match developed at lightning speed, ten minutes after the missed ball – Liverpool was again in front, goalkeeper Julian Speroni made a gross mistake and threw the ball at Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian had to push the ball into an empty net – 3:2. Very soon, the hosts confirmed their winning ambitions and finished off the opponent, Sadio Mane broke through the flank and increased the number of goals of his team to four – 4:2 in the 90+3rd minute. Thanks to Mane’s goal, the Reds weren’t too upset by a missed goal a minute later by Max Mayer. The result is 4:3, the Merseysiders won, and now, in order to maintain a four-point lead over Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp’s men cannot afford to lose in the Liverpool-Leicester match. Leicester “Foxes” let the rivals go into the gap, because of which they practically lost the chances of getting into the top six.

Eight minutes later, Wolverhampton players celebrated the second goal scored, Ryan Bennett was in the spotlight, the defender ran to the aid of his teammates and closed the canopy from the corner – 2:0.
