Liverpool's 3 best players in 3-0 win over Crystal Palace

On Saturday, Liverpool easily defeated Crystal Palace 3-0. Three players in particular stood out at Anfield.

Alisson

Wow. Without the Brazilian, Liverpool would have lost this game, much alone beaten Palace 3-0. He started by putting a tip on the post, and things only improved from there.

As it fell for Wilf Zaha, it was a difficult ball to assess. Things became uncertain as a result of the bad touch, but Alisson produced a powerful hand to keep things level inside three minutes.

However, Alisson's two second-half stops from Odsonne Edouard were absolutely remarkable. The best goalie in the world put up a world-class performance.

Sadio Mane 

Mane appeared to be the freshest of the strikers, owing to the fact that he only came off the bench against Milan. His dribbling was spectacular at times, especially in one first-half run in which he embarrassed three or four opponents in a single move.

He also showed great instinct to score his goal, gliding to the far post for a simple finish. It'll be his 100th appearance for Liverpool, and what a player he's been. he's getting back to his best.


Jordan Henderson

This was Henderson's 200th game as Liverpool captain, and he put up a strong showing. He helped to keep the midfield under control against a fierce Palace push, but it was his attacking effort that truly shone out.

This season, we know Liverpool wants more offensive intensity from the midfield. Harvey Elliott is an attack-first player, as seen by Jurgen Klopp's continuous use of him in midfield.

Henderson had to fill in for him at Anfield, and he did it brilliantly. The captain's effort on the right wing was fantastic, as you'd expect, connecting up with Mohamed Salah and James Milner. He was also unfortunate not to score, as Thiago's header was well saved. The captain's performance in a pivotal game.
