Manchester United halt Liverpool celebrations as Jamie Carragher calls out chanting



Your morning Liverpool headlines, including all the reaction from this weekend’s Premier League action

Your morning Liverpool headlines for Monday, December 11

Manchester United stop Liverpool celebrations as Mohamed Salah shows Rio Ferdinand real class 

Liverpool somehow snatched a 2-1 victory from the claws of defeat away at Crystal Palace to move top of the Premier League table.

The Reds were trailing 1-0 to a Jean-Philippe Mateta penalty and yet to even record a shot on target before Jordan Ayew was sent off for a second bookable offense in the 75th minute. Moments later Mohamed Salah equalized with his 200th goal for the club before Harvey Elliott struck a stoppage-time winner.

Victory saw Liverpool overtake Arsenal at the top of the table ahead of the Gunners travelling to Aston Villa in Saturday’s evening kick-off. A 1-0 defeat for Mikel Arteta’s men later confirmed they will retain the position heading into next weekend’s home clash with Manchester United at Anfield.

But you already know all of that, of course. And you can read Ian Doyle’s match verdict if you want to relive the ECHO’s official account of the game. Away from that though, here are some of the moments that might have gone under the radar in the capital…

After finishing up at Selhurst Park, The ECHO headed for Selhurst train station to start their long journey back to Merseyside. By this point, Saturday’s 3 pm kick-offs were nearing their end.

Several Liverpool fans descended on the platform moments after our arrival, instantly recognizable by a loud rendition of, ‘I’m so glad that Jurgen is a Red!’

However, such celebrations were quickly stopped in their tracks by the most important of updates. AFC Bournemouth had just scored a fourth goal against Manchester United at Old Trafford!

Jamie Carragher delighted for Everton after hearing what ‘nonsense’ Chelsea supporters were chanting

Jamie Carragher admitted he was delighted to see Everton take the lead in their Premier League clash against Chelsea on Sunday after sections of the Londoners’ support were heard singing offensive chants.

Abdoulaye Doucoure fired the Blues ahead early in the second half when he was on hand to turn Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s effort home, with Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez only able to parry the ball into danger.

The midfielder’s sixth goal of the Premier League season put Everton on course for a third win in a row after beating Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United in the last eight days.

However, Sunday afternoon’s game at Goodison Park was marred by unsavory chants from sections of Chelsea’s 3,000 or so traveling fans, who could be heard provoking the home crowd with poverty-teasing chants.
