It is amazing what a late winner can do to lift the spirits.

Liverpool appeared to be heading for a fourth defeat in five games against bogey side Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Joe Ledley broke the deadlock early in the second half to put Palace 1-0 up before Liverpool vice-captain James Milner received a red card for a second bookable offence.

However, Brazil international Roberto Firmino capitalised on Alex McCarthy’s mistake to halve the deficit before Christian Benteke won an added-time penalty for the hosts.

The Belgium international assumed responsibility from the penalty spot and duly dispatched his penalty with ease.

And Sakho selected one lucky, young Liverpool supporter to receive his signed match-day shirt following their 2-1 win at Premier League strugglers Palace.
