Meanwhile, Palace remain without a win under new boss Frank De Boer.

But Diouf is not fondly remembered in Liverpool - his attitude drew criticism from club legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, while he was no stranger to controversy on the pitch either.

"Everybody can now see how good Robbo - with a few more sessions - can be, especially in offensive situations".

Liverpool brought on Mohamed Salah to try and spark their attack into life late in the game and he did have an impact.

The Scottish full-back reportedly took a little while to get used to Jürgen Klopp's training methods and high-octane style of play but if his performance against Palace is anything to go by, then he'll be the next Roberto Carlos when he does completely adapt.

If you bet £25 on any player to top the table at the end of the season, they'll give a £5 free bet for every game he scores in until October.

Liverpool look ahead to their second game of the Champions League play-offs against Hoffenheim on Wednesday, and Robertson will undoubtably be hoping for another run out. Defensively, Robertson offers much more stability than Moreno and just as much creativity going forward.

Mo Salah was denied his first goal at Anfield in stoppage time by Hennessey, who extended quickly to deny the winger of a fine curling goal into the left corner.

Joe Gomez will start at right-back as first-choice Nathaniel Clyne continues to be out injured with a back problem. Bakary Sako and Wilfried Zaha will be sidelined with injuries while Pape Suoare, Johan Cabaye and James McArthur remain doubtful for the tie.

There was better news for the home side as Daniel Sturridge returned to the team for this encounter after missing Liverpool's first two games of the season with a thigh injury.

Andros Townsend could come into the team, or De Boer may opt for youngster Jason Lokilo.

Over the years, Draxler has impressed with Bundesliga clubs like Schalke and Wolfsburg.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek surged into the box and pulled the ball back for Christian Benteke perfectly but the former Liverpool striker, who has scored six times against them in the past, somehow blasted over from close range.
