BREAKING: Liverpool WhiteWash Palace 7-0 In Historical Victory As Firmino And Salah Bag Brace – #CRYLIV—For the first time in their top-flight history, Liverpool won by a seven-goal margin away from home as they humiliated Crystal Palace 7-0 at Selhurst Park.
The genius Media Nigeria reports that With Mohamed Salah on the bench from the start, not in the Liverpool XI for the first time this season in the Premier League, Takumi Minamino wasted no time in firing Liverpool into a third-minute lead with his first-ever Premier League goal.
Palace pressed for a leveller but, somewhat against the run of play, Sadio Mane fired a brilliant second into the net in the 35th minute, before Roberto Firmino made it three just before half time after a fine counter attack from the champions.
There was no letting up after the break from Liverpool, as Jordan Henderson made it four seven minutes into the second half, Firmino scored a fifth with a sumptuous finish and Salah helped himself to a late double off the bench as Liverpool opened up a six-point lead at the top of the table in emphatic style, with rivals still to play this weekend.
The defending champions will be top of the EPL at Christmas as they bare their collective teeth in the defence of their title.
