The Reds thanked Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for making for a dominant start to the game, as Liverpool soon became their own worst enemy for letting the hosts back into the game.
And while Odsonne Edouard shattered her aim, Alisson was a one-man brick wall to make sure it went as far as the Crystal Palace would get.
Time after time, the Brazilian was in the right place at the right time and proved how vital it is to get the right player between the posts.
Liverpool fans know their status in the game and Oxlade-Chamberlain was of a similar mind in praising the number 1's performance.
“After 35 minutes, we lowered our standards a bit. Alisson has bailed us out a few times in the past and today he has had a few moments," Oxlade-Chamberlain told Sky Sports.
