Liverpool continued their uninspiring start to the season with a second draw in as many Premier League games, playing out a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace at Anfield.

Liverpool piled on the pressure from the blast of the whistle but Palace who lost their season’s opener to Arsenal remained resilient.

A little after the half-hour mark, Wilfred Zaha collected a sweet pass from Eberechi Eze and directed a low shot into the bottom right corner of Allison’s goal to give the Eagles a surprising lead.

Liverpool’s record signing Darwin Nunez hit the post in first-half stoppage time, but just before the hour mark, he saw a straight red for sticking his forehead into Palace defender Joachim Anderson.

Luiz Diaz equalised for the Reds soon after, but even though they looked like the livelier side with a man down, the Reds couldn’t grab a winner late on.

Klopp’s men remain in search of their first win of the new season.
