Liverpool clashed against Crystal Palace at their home ground Anfield and the match fared out to be a draw. The Reds came into the match on August 15 after a 2-2 draw against Fulham. In a usual ritual, the home team must shake hands with the visiting team and the match officials as a mark of respect.
Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold were seen day-dreaming in a footage that has emerged out of nowhere. The duo were seen standing, staring at the spectators while their teammates had already left to shake hands with the visitors. Salah, on realizing this, patted his friend Trent to make a move on from the place. The 23-year-old right-back stood idle until his friend Salah glanced to his right and alerted him of it.
Trent and Salah were sleeping 😅

Fans did not spare a thought before coming up with hilarious comments. However, a hectic match followed the light moment as Crystal Palace and Liverpool testified in what was an exciting match. Darwin Nunez will serve a three-match ban following his red card in the match. This did not stop The Reds from chasing the 1-0 lead produced by Crystal Palace as Luis Diaz backed it up for Liverpool in the second half with a stunning goal.
Wilfried Zaha gave the lead for Crystal Palace right before halftime amid sheer dominance from The Reds. Jurgen Klopp’s men fell one short right 12 past the half-time as Darwin Nunez was kicked-off the field. With not much left to work with, the South America, Diaz, stepped up to the occasion to produce a stunning goal to match the lead.
I’ll be back: Darwin Nunez
The Uruguayan did not shy away from apologizing publicly for the incident. He took it to social media and apologized for his poor attitude that led to his three-match ban. “Apologies to Liverpool all, I’ll be back. I am aware of the ugly attitude I had. I’m here to learn from my mistakes and it won’t happen again,” Nunez said on social media.
Jurgen Kopp’s men will be taking on Manchester United at Old Trafford next Monday.
