Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace: Mane is the man

But the home side should still have enough firepower to outscore a Crystal Palace still trying to find their feet under the new regime.

Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the criticism aimed at Liverpool's defensive unit has been unjustified after seeing his side keep a clean sheet against Crystal Palace.

The short-lived, but more than frustrating Crystal Palace curse has been lifted at Anfield.

Robertson's industry and crossing abilities were on full display today.

Christian Benteke will lead the attack against his former employers, while Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek should start in their second Palace match. It was a shocking miss and a huge let off for Klavan.

Liverpool quickly went ahead minutes after the break but couldn't hold on to their one-goal advantage as they saw Miguel Brittos equalize in the final minute of the game for Watford.


Robertson replaced Alberto Moreno in the starting line-up and was Liverpool's most unsafe player in the first half with a number of threatening crosses.

"The transfer window is a very important time - there's no doubt about this - but it's also really important what we do with the actual team".

But despite playing some part in the game, the Daily Mail claims that Frank de Boer is willing to cash in on Townsend as the Dutchman looks to record his first Premier League win as Eagles boss.

With golden opportunities in front of goal not taken, the Eagles failed to secure their first points of the season, but De Boer is adamant that results will come as the game plan evolves. "We have to work on it", he told reporters. "Nearly everybody [else] is fit but maybe not to play 90 minutes for example, Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur". I loved every minute of it, ' he added. Palace face four winnable fixtures, taking on Ipswich Town in the second round of the League Cup before facing Swansea, Burnley and Southampton in their next three Premier League matches.

It is Liverpool's first home game of the new season, but the Reds have a massive Champions League clash against Hoffenheim on Wednesday night.
