Ings, Gomez and more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool beat Crystal Palace
Joe Gomez and Danny Ings take to Twitter after Liverpool are 2-1 winners against Crystal Palace on Sunday
Christian Benteke kept Liverpool’s slim hopes of a top-four finish alive after the striker came off the bench to seal a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace.
Wales midfielder Joe Ledley handed Palace a second-half lead against the run of play after Liverpool had dominated the opening 45 minutes at Selhurst Park.
Liverpool vice-captain James Milner was sent off shortly after Ledley’s opener to leave Klopp’s side facing a fourth defeat in five games against Palace.
But Roberto Firmino capitalised on Alex McCarthy’s slip to level before substitute Christian Benteke converted an added-time penalty to seal a 2-1 victory.
Klopp’s side are six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the race to secure a place in next season’s Champions League competition following their win at Selhurst Park.
Here is a selection of the best reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Liverpool’s 2-1 victory.
