Luiz Diaz after scoring vs Crystal Palace

Luiz Diaz produced a moment of magic in the 61st minute to blast home the equalizer for 10 man Liverpool.


The Reds could not find a way past Palace despite sustained pressure in yet another disappointing game for Jurgen Klopp’s men .


Liverpool had kicked off the season with a 2-2 draw against Fulham at Craven Cottage and we’re tipped to defeat Palace for their first win of the season but it was not meant to be .


Zaha gave Crystal Palace the lead in the 31st minute to suck life out of Liverpool who were unlucky not to have scored earlier in the game .


Luiz Diaz struck in the equalizer in the 64th minute , but despite the push for a winner by Liverpool , Palace held on for a draw at Anfield on Monday night .


Liverpool have thus recorded two points from it’s first two games with all eyes on the Reds as they settle into life without Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane .


It’s the first time in the Jurgen Klopp era , Liverpool FC have failed to win in their opening two games .
