Liverpool defeat Crystal Palace 7-0 and rise to the top of the league

Three days after assuming the leadership of the Prize League, the Reds consolidated their leadership by walking over the Crystal Palace, punished at home by 7-0, on Saturday. With 31 points, the champion is 6 points ahead of Tottenham, which hosts Leicester (4th) this Sunday.Against the 12th, Liverpool was obviously the favorite, but the match was a real demonstration of the men of Jürgen Klopp who scored almost with each shot on the target (8 at the end). Even the Crystal Palace coach, the experienced Roy Hodgson, 73, who has seen others, preferred to laugh when he sat on the bench after the 7th goal.

We saw Liverpool at the level of the team that won the league last season, finishing 18 points ahead of runner-up Manchester City. And we found Roberto Firmino, one-two in particular, after the decisive goal against Tottenham in the last minute of regulation time on Wednesday.

A historic success

The Brazilian striker, who struggled physically at the beginning of the season and was somewhat eclipsed by the insolent success of Portuguese Diogo Jota, set the record. It was he who allowed his team to widen the gap, with opening goals from Takumi Minamino and Sadio Mané.

Captain Jordan Henderson, with a beautiful shot, hit the scoreboard again, before Mohamed Salah, who entered only on time, scored a double. This 7-0 is for the Reds the biggest success away from home in their Premier League history.
