Friendly match

Liverpool 2-0 Crystal Palace

Goals: Henderson J.() – (1-0). Salah M. (


Liverpool started brightly and held the ball brilliantly in the early stages of the game.

However, it was Palace who took the first shot on goal as the player rose higher than everyone else for a corner, but Adrian easily saved his header.

Curtis Jones then forced Guaita to make a smart block before Liverpool took the lead.

Harvey Elliott’s cut sent Henderson out of the box, with the midfielder ferrying the ball into the far corner to score the first goal of the preseason.

Roberto Firmino then headed a header and Elliot missed out on a brilliant chance only to beat Guaita as Liverpool looked to increase their lead, but shortly before half-time Liverpool were disappointed as they lost Oxlade-Chamberlain to what looked like a hamstring injury.

Liverpool made 11 substitutions at half-time, including the appearance of Salah, and the player immediately moved into the game.

Hitting from the right flank, Salah’s left-foot shot deflected Joachim Andersen’s shot and erroneous-footed Guaita, who reached for the ball but was unable to keep it.

Minutes later, Nunez nearly scored a Liverpool goal, but after being knocked out by Salah’s cut, Guaita rebounded the striker’s throw as his wait for the first goal for his new club continued.

The substitutions continued in the second half, but it was Liverpool that looked more likely to increase their score.

Guaita was the much busier of the two goalkeepers and he turned down Fabio Carvalho before blocking a powerful Virgil van Dijk header.
