Welcome to The Independent’s live coverage of this Premier League clash between Liverpool and Crystal Palace at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be bouncing coming into this one, just three days after beating AC Milan in a Champions League thriller. The Reds have made a brilliant start to their 2021/22 campaign with ten points from their first four games. Slowly, people are beginning to talk about them as title contenders after the club took a backseat during the summer transfer window.

But this afternoon they will have to deal with a Crystal Palace side buoyed by their convincing 3-0 win over Tottenham last weekend. The Eagles took full advantage of Spurs being reduced to 10 men as they picked up their first league victory of coach Patrick Vieira’s reign.

New boy Odsonne Edouard made history on his debut against Tottenham when he became the fastest substitute goalscorer in Premier League history. Can he push on from that superb start this afternoon? It’s a tall order for Palace, but they won here in the not-so-distant past when they claimed a 2-1 victory in April 2017. Having said that, nine successive defeats since then do not bode well for the visitors.

Follow live updates from Anfield as the Reds look to keep pace at the top of the table in what promises to be a thrilling title race – PLUS the conclusion of the early kick-off at Molineux as Wolves take on Brentford:

90 mins: Off the bar! Mbeumo is played through the backline as Brentford attack on the counter. He drives into the box and shoots with his left-foot. The connection is good and the ball rattles into the crossbar! That would have settled it.

Six minutes of added time to play!

Wolves 0 – 2 Brentford

87 mins: Massive chance! Traore has whipping in crosses all game with no-one in position to receive them. This time Raul Jimenez pops up. David Raya thinks about coming for the ball but gets stuck in no-man’s land. Jimenez jumps highest, wins the header and then fires it wide of the back post!

Wolves 0 – 2 Brentford

84 mins: Danger. Podence wins a free kick right on the front edge of the Brentford penalty area. Trincao and Neves stand over the set piece but it’s going to be Trincao who takes it.

He gets his effort over the wall but there’s not enough time for the ball to dip under the crossbar and the shot goes high.
