Alexander-Arnold finds himself in the middle of the pitch, where he turns away from Schlupp and angles a delicious pass over the Palace defence.
Salah meets it on the run, 10 yards from goal, but heads straight at Guaita.
It was another good chance, and a ridiculous ball from Alexander-Arnold. He and Elliott have looked very bright for Liverpool.
Wilfred Zaha gives Palace the lead with a superb goal!
Palace are opening Liverpool up with increasing ease. Doucoure slides a pass down the inside-right channel towards Zaha, who times his run superbly again.
This time his touch is slightly heavy, and that allows Alisson to charge out and block the eventual shot.
This is a glorious equaliser! Diaz cut inside from the left, beating five players with a combination of dummies and quick feet, before flashing a curler past Guaita from the edge of the D.

It could have been worse for Liverpool. They were 1-0 down when Darwin Nunez stuck the head on Joachim Andersen, but Luis Diaz’s wonderful individual goal earned them a point.
Both teams had chances to win it during a desperate finale. Palace were really good: disciplined, controlled and menacing on the break – particularly when Eze and Zaha aligned, as they did for Zaha’s superb opening goal.

Andersen should have been yellow-carded twice: once for the push and then immediately for simulation,” says Paul Bowes. “Red for both would have been fairer.”
James Milner’s reaction “Disappointing. We started pretty well then lost our way a bit in the middle. At least we’re creating chances – if you’re not creating anything it’s a bigger problem. But it’s not the ideal start to the season.
“The reaction when we went down to 10 men was very, very good. The crowd helped us as well and [Luis Diaz] scored an incredible goal.
I didn’t see the incident [when Nunez was sent off]. We’ll rally round him and I’m sure he’ll learn from it. The most important thing was the reaction.”
