Comments:

League position: 13th Crystal Palace remained without a win in their last five games in the Premier League and conceded two goals in each game (lost four). Palace had now lost three consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since March 2018. Wilfried Zaha scored his first goal in his last 14 games in the Premier League. James Tomkins scored after 42 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to a foul by Jordan Ayew on Dejan Lovren.

Comments:

League position: 1st Liverpool were now unbeaten in their last 30 games in the Premier League (won 25); only Arsenal (49 games from May 2003 to October 2004) and Chelsea (40 from October 2004 to October 2005) had completed longer unbeaten runs in the competition. Sadio Mané became the third player to score in five consecutive games in the Premier League for the Reds against the same opponent (also Michael Owen against Newcastle United and Luis Suárez against Norwich City). They had now failed to keep a clean sheet in ten consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since September 2006. Liverpool had now scored in the 85th minute or later in six of their last nine games in all competitions for the fourth time in their history and for the first time since May 2009.
