Roberto Firmino came to the rescue for Liverpool just sixminutes before the end as the Reds ran out 3-2 winners over Crystal Palace.
Liverpool started poorly against former manager Roy Hodgson’s side and were momentarily trailing when James Tomkins headed home on the stroke of half time at Selhurst Park.
VAR was called into action following appeals from Dejan Lovren and it was adjudged the defender was pushed in the
back by Jordan Ayew in the build-up to the goal, which was chalked off by Kevin Friend.
