2nd consecutiv­e win for Liverpool

-

Liverpool joined another five clubs on top of the EPL standings with six points after beating Crystal Palace 1-0 at Selhurst Park last night - their second successive win.

James Milner converted a 45th minute penalty awarded by the official after Mohamed Salah was tripped by Sakho.

Crystal Palace went out in search of an equaliser in the second half, but Benteke and Townsend missed the only two half chances which came their way.

Crystal Palace had Aaron-Wan Bissaka sent off on 75 minutes after flooring Salah just outside the area.

Liverpool made sure of their win with a second goal through Sadio Mane in added time.
