Liverpool vs Crystal Palace All Goals and Highlights

Christian Benteke returned to haunt Liverpool with a double as Crystal Palace took another huge step towards securing Premier League safety with a 2-1 win at Anfield.

Liverpool were by no means at their fluid best in the first half and it ended up being an act of individual brilliance which gave them the lead, Philippe Coutinho's stunning free-kick giving Wayne Hennessey little chance.

Benteke continued his habit of scoring against the Reds just before the break, though, slamming into the roof of the net to convert for the fourth time in his last three Anfield visits as an opposition player.

Liverpool were no less dominant after the break and created chances more frequently, with Coutinho particularly prominent.

But their dominance was useless as Palace punished them, with Benteke providing Jurgen Klopp a costly reminder of his talents with the winning goal 16 minutes from time, giving Allardyce's side a huge boost and leaving Liverpool's top four hopes a little less certain.
