  1. FULL-TIME

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    All over.

    Liverpool's season is up and running. The Reds have their first Premier League win. Palace were much improved defensively after last week's defeat to Huddersfield but return to London empty handed.

    Thanks for your company. You can read a report of this game on the BBC Sport website.

  2. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Dominic Solanki and Mohamed Salah both go close to increasing Liverpool's lead. The Reds have had 16 shots - half on target.

  3. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    A decent chance for Sullay Kaikai but Simon Mignolet does well to deny the Palace substitute.

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Roberto Firmino is denied by Wayne Hennessey after the Palace keeper comes rushing off his line as Sadio Mane looked to pounce following Dominic Solanki's long punt forward.

  5. Post update

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Mohamed Salah looks to seal the points but his header is kept out by Wayne Hennessey after Joe Gomez's cross.

    SMS Message: Liverpool's squad is about as deep as a puddle. They'll have even fewer options next time Sturridge sneezes and tears his ACL so they should take the Coutinho money and bring in two or three more quality players imo from Simon, York

    Liverpool 1-0 Crystal Palace

    Palace are desperately trying to find a way back into this. This has been a much improved display by Frank De Boer's side after their heavy home defeat to Huddersfield but it looks as though they are going away empty handed unless they can produce a late equaliser.

    It was the simplest of tasks for Mane.

    I think we should credit Jurgen Klopp. He has basically stuck four up front and it has forced Palace back and opened up the midfield for Liverpool.

  9. GOAL

    Sadio Mane

    Sadio Mane releases the air of frustration which has been building around Anfield with a finish from eight yards after pouncing on a loose ball and prodding past Wayne Hennessey.

    Sadio Mane
  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    More frustration for Liverpool as Georginio Wijnaldum's goal-bound shot is blocked.

    Jurgen Klopp is getting more and more frustrated.

    Forward Dominic Solanke is sent on for Wijnaldum with 20 minutes remaining.

  11. Post update

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Would it be 0-0 if Philippe Coutinho was on the pitch?

    Just over 20 minutes remaining.

    SMS Message: As far as Coutinho is concerned, he knew that his contract did not have a release clause. If he wanted one, his representatives should have negotiated on that basis. As I see it he doesn't have a leg to stand on. He should honour the contract and stay. from Anon

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    The chances keep on coming for Liverpool.

    Jordan Henderson is the latest to be denied by Wayne Hennessey before Jurgen Klopp sends Mohamed Salah into the action in place of Daniel Sturridge.

    Loftus Cheek did brilliantly. Benteke should at the very, very least have hit the target.

  15. CLOSE!

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Christian Benteke wastes an excellent chance to give Palace the lead.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek does well to get the ball to the feet of the former Liverpool striker who is unmarked eight-yards out.

    Benteke surely must score but somehow blazes over. A huge let off for Liverpool.

    That was a really good save. Hennessey will have seen it very late and still managed to push the ball wide of the post.

  17. Post update

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    More frustration for the Reds.

    A free-kick by James Milner sails over the bar before Wayne Hennessey denies Liverpool at full stretch and Firmino is then flagged offside as he follows up.

  18. Post update

    Liverpool 0-0 Crystal Palace

    Jordan Henderson wins a midfield skirmish with Ruben Loftus-Cheek before Andrew Robertson delivers another dangerous cross into the area.

    This time it's too close to Wayne Hennessey who is off his line to gather before the ball drops at the feet of a red shirt.

    SMS Message: What is Jermaine Jenas waffling on about? How are Liverpool cutting their own nose off by refusing to sell Coutinho to Barca? No club needs the money these days. We'd rather have our best player than struggle to replace him this late in the window thanks. Might not suit the player but it suits us. We're keeping him. from Mark Choueke
