For the midday kickoff, they traveled to Selhurst Park.

 

CRY: Johnstone; Lerma, Richards, Hughes; Schlupp, Édouard, Ayew; Clyne, Guéhi, Andersen, Ward;

 

Alisson, Tsimikas, van Dijk, Quansah, and Alexander-Arnold of the LIV; Diaz, Nüez, and Salah; Gravenberch, Endo, and Szoboszlai.

Andy Madley’s three-minute review of Crystal Palace’s penalty appeal in the first half was met with displeasure; the referee ultimately determined not to award a spot-kick despite Virgil van Dijk’s tackle on Odsonne Édouard inside the penalty area. This decision was attributed to an earlier foul committed by Will Hughes in the buildup.

 

Andy Madley determined that Jarell Quansah had intercepted Jean Mateta as he attempted to clear a cross, and gave the hosts a penalty kick opportunity just before the hour mark. Mateta then promptly dispatched Alisson from 12 yards out after VAR decided to call the play back and direct the referee to the pitchside monitor. Play had continued prior to the decision.Mo Salah’s goal with less than fifteen minutes of regulation time remaining, mere seconds after Jordan Ayew was dismissed for a second bookable offense, was commendable. As he scores his 200th goal for the Reds, the Egyptian joins Ian Rush, Roger Hunt, Gordon Hodgson, and Billy Liddell as the only other players to reach that milestone.Harvey Elliott, however, secured a crucial three points for Liverpool in the title race by converting a stoppage time penalty at the beginning of an extended sequence of action to give Jürgen Klopp’s side the lead for the first time. Elliott did so from the penalty area.

 

A 100th-minute headed effort from Joachim Andersen was saved by Alisson as Liverpool emerged victorious from the lunchtime kickoff on Saturday, gaining the upper hand over Arsenal – at least until the Gunners’ travel to Aston Villa.
