Salah reigns again as Reds stage Palace coup

Arab News - - SPORTS -

An­drew Robertson on the left, whose pass found the Egyp­tian in the box. Salah took a touch be­fore fir­ing home for his 29th Premier League goal of the sea­son.

But even then there was a sense that the Reds had been lucky. Their for­mer striker Chris­tian Ben­teke missed two glo­ri­ous chances, and had one of those gone in then it could have been a dif­fer­ent story. In con­trast, Salah had only one real chance and made it count.

Next up for Liverpool is Manch­ester City in the first leg of their Cham­pi­ons League quar­ter­fi­nal on Wed­nes­day. And for Jor­dan Hen­der­son, vic­tory over Palace sets them up nicely for the big­gest game of their sea­son so far.

“It was a big re­sult. We were not at our best, but we kept go­ing and fight­ing,” the Reds skip­per said.

“It is a sign of a good team to win while not play­ing our best. We kept find­ing a way and Mo got an­other goal to win the game.

“At half-time we thought we could get back in the game and win it. The lads re­acted bril­liantly. (The win) gives us mo­men­tum for the game on Wed­nes­day.”
