Crystal Palace's Luka Milivojevic weighs in on Liverpool penalty row

Crystal Palace's Luka Milivojevic weighs in on Liverpool penalty row

The Reds took the lead from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time through James Milner.

Earlier, young Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka was shown a straight red card for a tackle on Salah who was bearing down on goal.

Crystal Palace captain Luka Milivojevic says he prefers playing without Video Assistant Referee (VAR) even though his side felt hard done by in going behind to a controversial penalty in the 2-0 loss to Liverpool.

Roy Hodgson's Eagles threatened to mount a comeback in the second half but Sadio Mane ensured Liverpool would be returning to Anfield with three points with a late goal. His performance was really, really good.

When asked if he'd like to see it be brought in, he said: "I don't want VAR in this league because, in my opinion, this country has the best referees in the world".

The United and Liverpool legends reckon David Silva will win the PFA Player of the Year award whilst Neville believes Phil Foden will be a youngster to watch out for.

That time Aretha Franklin swooped in and saved the Grammys
British musician and composer Elton John praised Franklin's "unique" voice, calling her "the greatest soul artist of all time ". Barbra Streisand shared a photo of her and Franklin from 2012, tweeting: "It's hard to conceive of a world without her".

Roberto Firmino's pass found Salah just inside the Palace area and when Sakho caught him with an out-stretched leg, the Egyptian's slightly delayed tumble didn't dissuade referee Michael Oliver from giving the penalty. "I think a well-deserved three points", he said on Sky Sports. Former Liverpool boss Hodgson is likely to keep with the same side on Monday and will be buoyed by the vocal home support. But Salah has won it and we've seen it time and time again. He's trying to defend.

"What would people expect me to say to that decision?"

"There's no way he's looking to get contact on the player himself".

After rattling the crossbar with a long-range shot in the first half, Andros Townsend struggled to find an end product in the second half with Andrew Robertson enjoying another excellent match.

"It was not a brilliant performance tonight, both full-backs can play perhaps 70 per cent or 80 per cent better, but I like the two goals we scored and I'm very happy with the result", he added.

"We've only played two games, it'll be a very long road and a tough year".
