Liverpool takes a win first match in the pre-season game after win over Crystal Palace with a score of 2-0 in the Standard Chartered Singapore Trophy 2022 at Singapore Sports Hub Stadium, Kallang, Singapore.
Liverpool started brightly and kept possession brilliantly in the opening stages of the games. But however, it was Palace who produced the first effort on target as Odsonne Edouard rose highest at a corner, but his header was easily plucked out of the air by Adrian.
Harvey Elliott’s cut-back picked out Henderson inside the penalty area and the England midfielder swept the ball into the far corner for the Reds’ first goal of pre-season.
Roberto Firmino then headed wide and Elliott spurned a glorious chance with only Guaita to beat as Liverpool looked to extend their advantage, but there was disappointment for the Reds just before the break as they lost Oxlade-Chamberlain to what looked like a hamstring injury.
Liverpool made 11 changes at the break, including the introduction of Salah, and the Egyptian got straight into the action.
Cutting in from the right flank, Salah’s left-footed shot took a deflection off Joachim Andersen and wrong-footed Guaita, who got a hand to the ball but could not keep it out.
Nunez almost added Liverpool’s third a few minutes later, but, after being picked out by Salah’s cut-back, Guaita palmed the striker’s shot away as his wait for a first goal for his new club continued.
Substitutions continued to disrupt the rhythm of the second half, but it was Liverpool who looked the more likely to add to their tally.
Guaita was by far the busier of the two goalkeepers and he denied Fabio Carvalho before keeping out Virgil van Dijk’s powerful header to keep the score respectable.
