Liverpool 3 Crystal Palace 1
90+3'—Iago Aspas is booked for kicking the ball away.
90+2'—Liverpool playing out time now, keeping hold of the ball and making Palace chase shadows.
Four minutes added on
Liverpool sub: Daniel Sturridge replaced by Iago Aspas
85'—OFF THE POST! Sturridge almost finishes the game off with a right-footed shot after linking once again with Suarez, but his shot bounces off the inside of the post and rolls right along the line. It comes out to Suarez again, but he's in an offside position by then. The Reds stepping things up to try and finish with a flourish.
83'—Liverpool trying to push forward again to see out this victory and Suarez is almost in behind the defence after a poor goalkeeper clearance, but the offside flag goes up late.
The goal comes from that free kick, flicked in by Gayle at the near post ahead of Gerrard and Toure. Sloppy defending from the Reds really.
78'—Just a little over 10 minutes to go and although the home side are still clear, just a little tension has set in due to Palace having more possession recently and Liverpool not really attacking much.
Liverpool 3 Palace 1
Dwight Gayle, 76 mins
75'—Sterling is shown a yellow card for pulling back Bolasie near the touchline. Free kick for Palace, who have been better over the last 20 minutes but haven't yet tested Mignolet extensively.
73'—Suarez is pulled up for a foul and the referee has a word with him, while Palace fans bay for a red. In fact, it was Moxey who turned and ran across Suarez's path and shouldn't have been anything at all. We're almost in the final 15 minutes.
69'—Niiiiice. Suarez manages to perform a neat trick on the run, a cross with his right boot wrapped around the back of his left. Even got a nutmeg in there too, but nobody in the middle to finish.
67'—Jose Enrique plays an overhit, blind aerial pass back towards his defence and gives Gayle a chance to run at the defence and shoot from range. It's over the bar, but a presentable chance for Palace.
Palace sub: Bolasie on for Chamakh.
Liverpool double sub: Victor Moses and Mamadou Sakho go off, Luis Alberto and Daniel Agger on.
64'—Sterling now does well to get down the right and fire a cross in, but again it's low and to the near post and Speroni can deal with it.
63'—Liverpool's attacking play has dropped off over the last six or seven minutes, with Palace enjoying a bit more possession in the Reds' half of the pitch. Campaña's ability to find a teammate has helped in that regard.
58'—A period of play ensues with both teams conceding possession a little sloppily, but Liverpool still look such a danger when they move into the final third. Sterling keeps getting a lot of space down the right and Henderson is really dictating a higher tempo of play when he gets on the ball.
53'—Sakho has had an impressive game so far once again. He tracks the run of Gayle across the area and makes a good challenge, conceding a corner but stopping the immediate danger.
49'—Suarez causing all sorts of problems here. He's taking on defenders at will, buzzing right across the attacking line, linking play and looking to get shots away.
47'—Bright start again from Liverpool, winning an early corner and then Sterling's cross being deflected into Speroni's arms with Suarez lurking in the middle.
Double Palace halftime sub: Kebe, Jerome off, Campaña, Gayle on.
3 - Crystal Palace have been 3-0 down at half-time seven times in PL history and three of them have been against Liverpool. Haunted.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) October 5, 2013
