Roberto Firmino's equaliser was followed by Christian Benteke winning a penalty and duly slotting it home to give Liverpool all three points at Selhurst Park.
And Villa supporters were delighted for the Belgian. A couple accused him of diving, however...
Crystal Palace and some Aston Villa fans seemed incensed that Benteke went down dramatically, although post-match analysis and slow-motion replays proved that, firstly, there was contact and, secondly, a needless challenge where the defender recklessly goes to ground will always result in a penalty.
Apart from those who criticised the Liverpool striker on Sunday, plenty of Aston Villa fans lauded Benteke for his contribution against Crystal Palace...
