It is true that the corona era has led to a kind of “madness” when it comes to world sports, but not every day a football game ends in a one-sided result 0: 7. This is the magnitude of the defeat that Liverpool inflicted on Crystal Palace today (Saturday) and it turns out that beyond the unusually crushing victory, the history of the rivalry between the teams points to a particularly dismal history for Palace, many of the darkest games they have ever known were against Liverpool. In addition, Jürgen Klopp and the stars in his team recorded some impressive records and landmarks tonight and we have put them all together for you below.
Liverpool’s 0: 7 numbers on Crystal Palace
7 – Each of Liverpool’s seven goals today was scored by a different player, something that has never happened in the history of the Premier League.
3 – For the first time in the Premier League, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Muhammad Salah scored and cooked all three in the same game. None of them completed 90 minutes today. By the way, the last time the three of them won the same game, came against Crystal Palace.

6 – This is Liverpool’s sixth straight away win over Crystal Palace. Only against Norwich did the Merseyside achieve a longer streak, one that is still active and has seven wins, while also against Aston Villa they recorded a streak of six that was interrupted last year.

125 – Minamino’s goal was Liverpool’s fastest in an away game in the Premier League (two minutes and five seconds) since November 2014. Even then Crystal Palace stood in front and the one who scored was Ricky Lambert.
7 – Sadio Mane has scored in all of his last seven league games against Palace. Apart from Robin van Persie who found the net in eight consecutive encounters with Stoke City, no player has recorded a longer streak in the English league. The Senegalese have 10 goals in 12 games against Palace.
10 – Mana has a streak of ten games without a goal in all competitions, his longest since arriving at Liverpool.

5 August 1994 was the last time Crystal Palace conceded at least a five in a home game in all competitions. It happened in a 6: 1 defeat against, you guessed it, Liverpool.
