Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and his players are keen to get their latest Premier League campaign going ahead of the visit of newly promoted team Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
Just like what was obtainable with the Fulham game, Liverpool were favourites to secure the three points on offer at the end of their first game at home in the league at the expense of South London team Crystal Palace. Like the Fulham game, their clash with Palace ended in a score draw as they failed to secure victory in a game they were clearly favourites to win. WilfriedZaha gave Crystal Palace the lead in the first half and it was enough to take his team into the half-time break with a one-nil lead. Liverpool forward Luis Diaz scored the equaliser for Liverpool in the second half for a 1-1 draw at the end of the game. The goal from Colombian star Diaz arrives after Darwin Nunez was dismissed for a slight headbutt on Palace central defender Joachim Andersen.
Liverpool have remained winless in the Premier League this season after the 2-1 loss to hosts and arch rivals Manchester United on Monday. They were favourites for the United game as well. The Reds can finally register their first win when they take on Bournemouth at home this weekend.
