Hello and welcome to live coverage of Liverpool vs Crystal Palace at Anfield. Kickoff is at 8pm UK time in the English Premier League.
1'
KICKOFF! We are underway at Anfield.
2'
CLOSE! Liverpool nearly open the scoring here. Alexander-Arnold's cross is punched by Guita and Milner shows more desire than Ayew and gets to the ball. He fires off a wild shot though with the goal somewhat gaping.
3'
Guita was injured as he got up to try to smother Milner's effort and is getting some treatment. Johnstone has gone to warm up for Palace just in case.
6'
It's been a fast start from the Reds and Elliott has a shot blocked at close quarters. They clearly realise the importance of winning this match but Palace have set up with a back five this evening.
7'
Palace are holding firm down their left. Mitchell first defends really well 1v1 against Salah and then Eze comes back to break up play.
8'
So far, the Eagles have tried to hit Zaha with long balls on the counter attack and it's just coming straight back.
9'
CHANCES! Elliott comes close as he cuts past a couple of Palace defenders but sees his goal bound effort blocked by Anderson. When a deep Alexander-Arnold cross reaches Darwin Nunez, he skies over the bar.
11'
The counterpressing from the Reds so far is brilliant. They've had 72% of the ball and keep winning it back within seconds off Palace.
12'
Palace have a rare attack but Milner clears Mitchell's cross. Then Zaha tries to go past Phillips but doesn't make any progress. The Ivorian winger could be starved this evening.
15'
Phillips hits a good long ball from the back for Nunez. The Uruguayan volleys a cross into the box but Guita claims it well.
17'
The pressure is relentless here. Robertson makes a run behind the defence onto another good Phillips long pass. Palace stop the attack and then Dias has a shot deflected up in the air which Guita claims.
19'
Offside! Palace release Eze behind the defence but he has his shot saved by Alisson. The flag goes up belatedly and replays show it was well offside.
21'
Somehow Palace are still level at 0-0. Alexander-Arnold's low cross is well cleared by Anderson then Robertson attacks another ball from Trent but Ayew scuffs it clear. Crosses are raining into the Palace box right now.
23'
CHANCE! Liverpool will surely score soon. Alexander-Arnold puts a good low ball into the box but Salah sidefoots a couple of metres wide of the post.
25'
WIDE! Van Dijk tries a shot from 40 yards but skies his effort wide. Maybe a slight show of frustration at dominating this match but not scoring at least once by this stage.
27'
Some quick Liverpool interplay as Elliott looks to run onto a Nunez flicks but Palace again do just enough to clear it.
28'
A rare attack for Palace again but it doesn't lead to a chance as Clyne's cross is cleared. The Reds try to break but Anderson is there to win the ball and draw a foul off Nunez. The Danish centre back has been brilliant so far.
30'
CHANCE! Alexander-Arnold comes into a central role and plays a lovely ball over the top for Salah but he heads straight into Guita's arms.
31'
Phillips is having a fantastic game for Liverpool. He's basically eaten up every Palace attempt to hit Zaha on the counter attack. No wonder he has been preferred to Gomez with Matip and Konate both injured.
32'
GOAL, CRYSTAL PALACE, ZAHA! He's had a terrible time until now but finally he gets service. Eze makes a lovely dribble and releases the Ivorian winger who finishes superbly into the far bottom corner. What a goal from Vieira's team. Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace.
34'
Nunez tries to equalise right away but drags a shot well wide from a difficult angle some 20 yards from goal.
36'
Palace are throwing themselves at shots. Two Alexander-Arnold efforts are charged down and then one from Diaz.
38'
End to end stuff here. Doucoure shoots well wide from distance and then Zaha shoots from distance but a low shot is straight at Alisson.
40'
YELLOW, Liverpool: Ayew wins the ball of Luis Diaz and is dragged back by the Liverpool winger.
41'
CHANCE! Doucoure slides a pass for Zaha who beats the offside trap. Zaha's touch is a bit heavy and Alisson smothers the effort from close range. A better first touch and that could be 2-0.
43'
Guita is taking his sweet time over his goalkicks now and the Anfield crowd at not happy with that.
44'
SAVE! Alexander-Arnold releases Salah to deliver a cross. Elliott meets it with a header and when Guita parries, Anderson puts it behind for a corner in a bit of a panic. The corner comes to nothing though.
45'
HALF TIME. What a game so far. Palace are defending aggressively and desperately in a back five and somehow have a clean sheet intact. Zaha's superb finish on a counter attack from Eze's assist is the difference. Liverpool 0-1 Crystal Palace.
45'
+3' POST! Liverpool keep a corner alive and Elliott plays a nice ball over the top for Nunez, who slices his shot somewhat past Guita and against the far post. Van Dijk slips as he tries to strike the rebound but a foul had been committed.
45'
+3' CLOSE! Alexander-Arnold slides pass behind Mitchell for Salah's run. Guehi shows his pace to read it and slide it out for a corner.
45'
+1' We're ending this half will Liverpool having all of the ball but somewhat spamming crosses into the area. A little bit of link play from Nunez is lacking and that's where Mane or Firmino are missed perhaps.
45'
Added time: 3 minutes.
46'
KICKOFF! The second half is underway with no changes on either side.
49'
Nearly a leveler now for Liverpool. Nunez is sent into a scoring position but gets poor contact on his left footed shot. Ward came sliding across and blocked the effort with his back, with the crowd shouting for handball.
53'
Palace are carrying a threat here. Van Dijk appears to foul Zaha and nothing is given. Ayew then has a cross blocked before Robertson fouls Ayew from behind.
55'
Liverpool haven't really gotten going in this half with their passing. Some of their early tempo and ball speed has disappeared.
58'
RED CARD! Anderson pushes Darwin Nunez in the back and he headbutts the Dane in retaliation. Awful, shocking behaviour from Darwin Nunez. Hopefully he gets a ban significantly more than three matches.
61'
GOAL, LIVERPOOL, DIAZ! The winger picks it up on the left and dribbles past a couple of challenges before shooting into the far corner. A sensational piece of play and goal.
63'
SUBS, Liverpool: Tsimikas for Robertson, Henderson on for Milner and Gomez on for Phillips.
64'
SUB, Palace: Edouard on for Ayew.
66'
Liverpool have responded really well to going down to ten men. They're winning freekicks and looking better than they did with 11.
68'
YELLOW, Palace: Ward goes through the back of Diaz and gets caution.
71'
WILD! Salah flicks a pass for Alexander-Arnold's run but the fullback tries to hit it as hard as possible and ends up shanking it miles wide. Replays show he was offside anyway.
73'
A slight lull in the game now an in the crowd noise. Palace have won a couple of fouls to eat up some time.
75'
Salah goes around Mitchell on the byline and wins a corner. Tsimikas delivers but it's cleared and Zaha breaks... Diaz chases back brilliantly to challenge Zaha though.
78'
CHANCE! Palace should score. Doucoure delivers a good cross from the right but Zaha can only hit the post on the stretch. He went with his right foot when his left would have been better. Its should be 2-1 to Palace.
79'
SUBS, Palace: Eze, Mitchell, Doucoure off. Richards, Hughes and Milivojević on.
80'
SUB, Liverpool: Carvalho on for Elliott.
82'
Palace now break down the right with Edouard and he finds Zaha in the box. The attacker has been off colour besides his goal and takes a bad touch and loses the chance.
83'
Liverpool are playing Alexander-Arnold as basically a forward or number ten. He's been anywhere besides right back since the red card.
87'
SO CLOSE! Henderson delivers a good ball for Liverpool which Tsimikas skews into the area. It reaches Salah to strike on the half-volley and it flashes fractionally wide of the post.
88'
SUB, Palace: Olise replaces Schlupp.
89'
YELLOW, Palace: Edouard is booked for time wasting.
90'
FULL TIME. Palace take a point an Anfield with a back five and some heroic defending. Zaha put them ahead before Darwin Nunez was red card for a thuggish headbutt. Diaz rescued a point with a wonder goal for the Reds. Liverpool 1-1 Fulham.
90'
+4' CHANCE! Palace deliver a corner, Richards nods it on and Anderson stabs it wide on the stretch for the Eagles. Definitely not a clear chance but an opening neverthless.
90'
+3' YELLOW, Liverpool: Carvalho catches Olise with a late challenge and is booked.
90'
+1' YELLOW, Palace: Guita is booked for time wasting.
90'
Added time: 5 minutes.
90'
WIDE! Alexander-Arnold delivers a freekick, Fabinho heads it down and Carvalho volleys superbly on his left but inches wide. So close to a winner for Liverpool.
90'
Foul: Ward fouls Diaz, who has stepped up brilliantly since the red card and not just with his goal. He's demanded the ball and been a big weapon.
