Liverpool came from behind to snatch the points despite playing with 10 men for the last half-an-hour.
Crystal Palace had taken the lead when Joe Ledley smashed home at the 48th minute and later James Milner was given marching orders with his second yellow card of the match. Liverpool were in a bit of a jeopardy But Roberto Firmino pounced on a huge error from Alex McCarthy to fire in the equalizer. Christian Benteke was then introduced to the game and in the last minute he was penalized inside the box. Penalty was awarded to Liverpool and Benteke scored from the spot with utmost confidence to prove his worth to the manager. Here are the three things we learned.
- Benteke shows his worth to Klopp
Christian Benteke has not started in the last six games for Liverpool. Divock Origi was preferred above him by Klopp. Somehow, Benteke does not fit in Klopp’s style of play and his tactics. He was Liverpool’s second most expensive signing till date and he always was under pressure to perform. However, he proved his worth to the boss by his contribution in the game and hopefully the manager will give him the in the games to come.
