As reported by The Liverpool Echo, Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Crystal Palace last night at Selhurst Park was not only significant in terms of this season.
The Reds’ victory saw them keep pace at the top of the Premier League table, but in seeing Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip score, the men from Anfield also achieved a feat they hadn’t done in the league since 1968.
It was in that year that the Reds last saw two of their centre-halves score in the same game, a 4-0 win over Leicester City. On that occasion, it was Ron Yeats followed by Tommy Smith as the Merseysiders scored all four of their goals in the opening twelve minutes of the match.
Fast forward to 2016 and it was Dejan Lovren nodding Jurgen Klopp’s men in front for 2-1 before his partner Matip buried a header of his own for 3-2 before half-time.
Roberto Firmino would go on to complete the scoring in the second-half with the Reds behind Manchester City and Arsenal on goal difference in the league.
Though much has been made about the attacking line Jurgen Klopp has crafted on the Merseyside, it appears they’ve simply got goals all over the pitch.
