Jürgen Klopp delighted with ‘ugly’ Liverpool’s win at Crystal Palace

It wasn't a devastating, swashbuckling performance from the Reds, however, winning these games by showing grit and determination was something we haven't witnessed much from them.

The Reds are now on six points after two wins over West Ham and Crystal Palace.

No team has retained the Premier League title since neighbours United did so in 2008/09.

Palace's pursuit of an equaliser left them vulnerable to the counter-attacks that ended with Wan-Bissaka's red card and Mane's late finish, and midfielder Milivojevic said: "I told him "Say to the referee it's not a penalty".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp celebrates with Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk after the Premier League match at Selhurst Park, London.

"I don't want penalties for my team in that way - if you ask me one day "was it a penalty" and I don't say that those situations aren't penalties both for and against, then I'll be very disappointed in myself and you'll be quite entitled to take me up on it".

"I'm not interested in sending a statement to Manchester City or anyone else, " manager Juergen Klopp said.

I am not sure, I think we won all of the games [I've managed] here but I know it's really hard. "I want to win football games".

"We have an unbelievable team and manager".

Right from the start, Salah was in the thick of the action when he surged onto Naby Keita's long pass, but the Egyptian's chip sailed high over the bar.

The closest Palace came to scoring was when Andros Townsend curled a long-rage shot against the crossbar in the first half.

Klopp's men finally made the breakthrough just seconds before half-time. It really was a world class save that all Liverpool fans have been dying to see for years now.

Milner, ignoring the sound and fury, nervelessly sent Wayne Hennessey the wrong way with his spot-kick.

The Brazil global - who acrobatically kept out Luka Milivojevic free-kick early in the second half - has quickly settled in at his new club following his arrival from Roma.

If Salah has started the current season they way he ended the last, then so has Senegal forward Sadio Mane. Crystal Palace wanted to strike back, so that was all clear. Once again, his distribution was unreal, he was nearly a field player today with the way he knocked the ball around, and that is something so new to this Anfield side and will really add a special dynamic throughout the season.
