By Emma Sanders
Liverpool players voiced their excitement on Twitter and Instagram following their 4-2 victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
Jurgen Klopp’s side recorded their seventh Premier League victory of the season in emphatic style in a game which highlighted Liverpool’s strengths and weaknesses.
It was a thrilling encounter which saw Liverpool take the lead on three occasions before Roberto Firmino rounded-off the scoring.
Five goals were scored in the first half as Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and James McArthur (2) all found the back of the net in the opening 45 minutes.
Liverpool demonstrated some shocking defending at times, with Lovren, Alberto Moreno and Loris Karius at fault on several occasions.
