Salah scores his 200 th goal as Liverpool defeats 10-man Palace 2-1 to take the lead.


 

After an exciting match on Saturday, Liverpool fought back from behind to defeat 10-man Crystal Palace 2-1 and take the lead in the Premier League standings. Mohamed Salah scored his 200th goal for the club, and Harvey Elliott added the winning goal in stoppage time


Liverpool leads the standings with 37 points, one more than Arsenal, who play Aston Villa later on Saturday. The match was centered around the dismissal of Eagles forward Jordan Ayew for a second yellow card in the 75th minute for a seemingly insignificant infraction


Throughout the match, referee Andrew Madley was right in the middle of things, giving the home team eight yellow cards and refusing them a penalty in the first half after being sent to the sidelines for a video assistant review


After a protracted video review, it was determined that Liverpool center-back Jarell Quansah had fouled Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Mateta scored from the penalty spot to give Palace the lead in the 57th minute
