Salah sets up 2 goals, Liverpool beats Palace 2-0 in EPL

Roy Hodgson is unveiled as the new Liverpool FC manager at Anfield

Klopp stuck with the same starting XI for the trip to Palace and James Milner broke the deadlock from the penalty spot.

The score was 1-0 at the time, Milner having slotted in the penalty on the stroke of halftime after Salah tumbled under a challenge from former Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho.

Social media is bursting at the seams with praise for Virgil van Dijk following his man-of-the-match performance in Liverpool's 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Monday night and one Sky Sports pundit in particular has been gushing in his admiration of the Reds centre-back.

The second half was just as tense as the first, with even more chances by Crystal Palace coming down the stretch.

"I'm frustrated because I don't think that's a penalty". Everyone is entitled to their opinion. As a result, it's disappointing, a cause for frustration and anger. It's not a penalty. "I've been in football a long time and, if that's a penalty, then the game has changed beyond all recognition".

"There's no way [Sakho] is looking to foul the player", he went on. He's trying to defend.

New batsman Ollie Pope fell for 10 when a genuine glance off Sharma was well caught down the legside by the 20-year-old keeper. Chris Woakes had bailed out the top-order with a maiden Test century in England´s innings and 159-run win at Lord´s last week.

"So I'm certain that he will want and hope and desire that trophy". And we can certainly consider ourselves in a similar category to them. I didn't see it. "If nobody else sees that I'll be the pariah and if everyone else sees it differently, I'll accept that".

Palace put on a positive showing, especially as they ended the game with 10 men following Aaron Wan-Bissaka's red card. We were pushing to get an equaliser, playing quite well, looking reasonably likely to get that equaliser and asking questions of their defence.

But Klopp believes it's too early to talk about the title race after just two games.

"I thought we could have done better, but yes we expected Palace to be that strong", Klopp said. 'We won it because we scored in two very decisive moments. That's good - a big step for us. Everyone knows that when we are not brilliant, we usually lose. Today we were not brilliant but we still won.

After Wilfried Zaha's run earned a second-half free-kick in a risky position, Palace captain Luka Milivojevic whipped the set-piece goalwards, only for Liverpool keeper Alisson Becker to make a superb save low to his left. With cars, it's the case, and with players too. Made a couple more really important saves throughout along with some catches and punch outs that needed attention.
