Liverpool failed to pick up a point for the second successive week in the Premier League in their first game at Anfield of the new campaign. Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha put the visitors ahead in the first half after a decisive breakaway, but Luis Diaz equalised with a sublime finish after Darwin Nunez had been sent off before the hour.

Harvey Elliott, who played 79 minutes in, criticised the way Crystal Palace were played by Patrick Vieira after the one-goal draw and detailed the mentality of the team, who now want to put the result behind them ahead of next week's clash with Manchester United.

Elliot's words

"Palace came here with a game plan and it worked for them. I think the boys showed great resilience and great fight and desire to come back and get Luis' goal, a bit of magic from them. We need these players in these difficult times," detailed the youngster who wears the number 19 shirt.

"I think the mood in the dressing room sums it up. We came here to win, unfortunately we couldn't do it today, but it's a point. They didn't beat us, which is the main thing, and we're going to take that into the next game. Hopefully we can correct that," he said.

"It was a low blow, to be honest. I felt we were on top of them. We had a lot of chances, including myself, that we couldn't finish. It's a learning curve and we'll take it into the next game and make sure next time we can take those chances and make sure we come away with a win."
