Frazier Campbell gave the home side an early lead, but after the introduction of Mario Balotelli at the break, Liverpool emerged for the second-half a changed team. Daniel Sturridge drew us level before Adam Lallana deservedly slammed in the winner!
Read the full Liverpool player ratings below:
GK) Simon Mignolet – 8/10
Was unlucky with the goal, making a superb save to deny Dwight Gayle, only to find Frazier Campbell following up. He made one other excellent stop from Gayle with the score at 1-0, while he was also commanding in the air, catching and punching numerous Palace crosses.
RCB) Emre Can – 7/10
Another good day from the German, who once again proved his versatility when he was asked to move to wing-back at half-time. He needs to work on dealing with the long ball coming over the top, but other than that his game his astonishingly accomplished considering his age.
CB) Martin Skrtel – 5/10
The Slovakian was caught out of position for the goal, while he had a couple of other nervous moments – particularly in the first-half. He’s been in very good form recently, and everyone is allowed a bad day – thankfully his mini-dip in form didn’t matter today.
LCB) Mamadou Sakho – 8/10
Another solid performance from the Frenchman, who recovered from a worrying knock early in the second-half to put in a fine defensive display. He was given a lot to think about by Gayle and co, but deal with the threat superbly.
