This draw, after the inaugural 2-2 against Fulham last week, does not help the Reds, who already find themselves four points behind Arsenal and especially defending champion Manchester City, who started at a hellish pace (two matches, two wins, six goals scored, none conceded).

Jurgen Klopp's men, led in the 32nd minute and a goal from Wilfried Zaha, managed to equalize on the hour mark thanks to a superb strike from Luis Diaz (61st).

The rookie arrived from Benfica Darwin Nunez had just been excluded for a gesture of humor towards Joachim Andersen.

Before that, the Uruguayan striker had, like his teammates, failed to find the fault against the men of Patrick Vieira.

Evidenced by the 17 strikes of residents of Anfield in the first period, for only three shots on target.

Above all, it was Crystal Palace who opened the scoring in the 32nd minute on a dazzling counter.

Served by Eberechi Eze from midfield, Wilfried Zaha, covered by Nathaniel Phillips, did not flinch to allow his side to take the lead on their first opportunity.

Zaha then brought danger twice.

But his shot too crushed (38th) then his missed control (40th) this time did not deceive Alisson.

The Ivorian striker also almost threw a chill on Anfield when his outside right foot found the post of the Brazilian goalkeeper less than a quarter of an hour from the end (78th).

But in the second half, the vice-champions of Europe limited the damage despite the red addressed to Darwin Nunez.

Provoked by Andersen, the 23-year-old striker headbutted him, leaving his teammates at 10 (57th).

A red that has paradoxically awakened its own.

And three minutes later, Diaz's powerful strike following a slalom in the Eagles defense woke up Anfield.

But Klopp's men may already have regrets.

It has been ten years since Liverpool last finished two Premier League games without a win.
