Sky Sports Premier League HD

Liverpool’s domestic form stumbled again with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, despite twice hitting the crossbar.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were hoping to recover some confidence after a 5-2 drubbing by Real Madrid on Tuesday evening, but looked “fragile” – as Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp described at half-time – as they returned to Premier League action.

They passed up a number of chances, with Diogo Jota nodding onto the crossbar from close range in the first half before Mohamed Salah lashed against the woodwork shortly after the break.

But Crystal Palace hardly sat back and impressed in large spells – although did not register a shot on target despite some questionable moments from Liverpool’s defence.

They also found the bar as Jean-Philippe Mateta rifled an effort onto the post, having earlier been gifted the chance to see his side ahead after a sloppy Trent Alexander-Arnold pass. Marc Guehi and the superb Michael Olise also went close.

Ultimately, both teams lacked a cutting edge. Liverpool move up a place into seventh, six points adrift of the top four. Palace also drew their third successive Premier League game and remain in 12th.
