Liverpool vs Crystal Palace LIVE: Latest Premier League Updates

Premier League transfers: All the stars linked with moves before the summer window closes

Liverpool host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night as they look for their first win of the new season following a disappointing draw against newly promoted Fulham at Craven Cottage last Saturday.

It wasn’t the start Jurgen Klopp’s men wanted or expected as they try to challenge for the top flight title this year. Aleksandar Mitrovic’s brace was enough to earn the Cottagers a point, but the Reds twice came from behind to save themselves some blushes. The saving grace was new signing Darwin Núñez, who started strongly and got on the scoresheet in his first experience of Premier League football.

Meanwhile, Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace fell to defeat against a confident Arsenal side who ran out 2-0 winners at Selhurst Park on the opening night of the season. The Eagles lost both meetings against Liverpool last season, including a 3-0 defeat at Anfield. Can they improve under the lights this evening or will the Reds come out firing on all cylinders?

Follow all the action from Anfield as Liverpool take on Crystal Palace:

73 min: Mo Salah looks to be playing as a lone striker now and has moved into a more central position. Alexander-Arnold is playing higher up the pitch on the right doing double duty in defense and attack.

However, it is difficult for Liverpool to find a way. Crystal Palace have enough men at the back to cover.

The right-back, however, loses his composure and sends his effort high and wide. Then the offside flag goes up.
