Benteke Moves Crystal Palace Closer To Safety

Former Liverpool strike Christian Benteke scored twice on his Anfield return as Crystal Palace came from behind to beat Liverpool 2-1 on Sunday. Philippe Coutinho had put Liverpool ahead on 24 minutes with a glorious curling free-kick from distance.

Benteke levelled just before half-time, converting at the far post and following up an initially muted celebration with a rock-paper-scissors handshake with on-loan team-mate Mamdou Sakho. Benteke then headed in the winner in the 74th minute, his fifth as an opposition player at Anfield, after the home side failed to deal with a corner.
The result leaves Liverpool just three points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United, who have two games in hand on the Reds, and sends Palace seven points clear of relegation.
