Hal Robson-Kanu grabbed the opener for the hosts barely 15 minutes into the encounter with a stunning striker from within the 18-yard box.

The 31-year-old got a superb pass from Matheus Pereira in the third quarter of the field before making a run into the box then placed the ball into the bottom left corner of the post.

Mohamed Salah combined well with strike partner Sadio Mane to level parity for the Reds in the 33 minutes. The Egyptian struck the ball from the edge of the box after receiving a fantastic pass from the Senegalese.

And the game was looking like it was going to end in a draw after both sides failed to find the back of the net for the most part of the second half but the audacious move from the keeper made the difference.
