Liverpool locked horns with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park earlier tonight as they hoped to secure a victory on the travels. The Reds made a nervy start to the game but managed to get to the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.
Both teams fought tooth and nail in the second 45 minutes but failed to break each other down as the match finished scoreless with Liverpool only coming away with a point from South London.
Let’s take a look at how each Liverpool player fared during the match against the Eagles.
GK: Alisson Becker – 6.5/10

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – 6/10
He looked vulnerable at the back but had a lively game in the opponent’s half.

CB: Virgil Van Dijk – 7/10
