Questionable WAS-verdict: Liverpool beats Crystal Palace after the horror

Liverpool wins the most matches, the team playing for the time being.

Thus, also, Saturday's Premier League match, how much went Liverpool's way in the 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace.

The most controversial, which probably will be discussed vehemently in the aftermath of the fight, was a WAS judgment, which deprived the Crystal Palace a goal.

Shortly before the break headede James Tomkins the ball in the net, and it looked like a regular target.

But after a longer break with the one-review, the goal was canceled because of a free-kick in the run-up to the goal.

There was a small push in the field, as there often is at set pieces, and it was enough, that the goal was disallowed despite big protests.

Four minutes after the break and scored Liverpool to 1-0 at the attacker Sadio Mane, who had the margins on his side.

Mane didn't hit the ball particularly cleanly, and the took first the one bead, danced across the goal line and went in through the second bead.

Crystal Palace, however, was the answer again, as the attacker Wilfried Zaha equalized to 1-1 after 82 minutes.

Liverpool would only have to spend three more minutes, before Roberto Firmino had brought the away team in front once again.

Zaha had a great opportunity to equalise again in injury time, but the striker shot over the goal.

With the victory tops Liverpool the league with 37 points after 13 matches.

Leicester, who won 2-0 over Brighton, is located on the second place with 29 points after 13 matches.

Kasper Schmeichel stood throughout the match for Leicester and kept a clean sheet for the away team.

Arsenal played 2-2 at home against Southampton. Six minutes into injury time equalized Alexandre Lacazette for the home team to the end result 2-2.

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg played the entire match for Southampton, who, in turn, had not Jannik Vestergaard with in the squad.
