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

Fifteen minutes before the final whistle, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for taking down Mohamed Salah on his way to a goal.

"We could have done better offensively, and it was not a brilliant football game from us".

Liverpool headed to Selhurst Park on the back of a 4-0 thrashing of West Ham United and were looking to continue with their winning momentum.

Oliver was trailing the counter-attack but demonstrated remarkable speed by pursuing the attack and managing to keep up with the breaking Liverpool duo.

The second half was just as tense as the first, with even more chances by Crystal Palace coming down the stretch. "Our target is to be a hard opponent". For me it was clear; it was not a penalty.

"Nobody thinks about that now, which is good".

Mane made it 2-0 in stoppage time with great strength and skill as he broke from the halfway line, after collecting a Salah through ball, and rounded Hennessey before slotting home.

"It's very early", Klopp said when asked whether his side sent out a title statement at Selhurst Park on Monday.


'It is too strong to say anything after two match days.

'We gave them enough problems and we can consider ourselves unlucky to lose 2-0.

Replays proved inconclusive as to whether Salah dived to convince referee Michael Oliver, but former Anfield favourite Carragher believed that the FWA Footballer of the Year did not attempt to con the officials.

Liverpool should have gone ahead through an unlikely source when a cross from Milner reached Robertson at the back post, only for the Scottish full-back to blaze his volley from the penalty spot high over the crossbar.

"You look at some of the teams, talking about Cardiff and Newcastle at the weekend, I wouldn't cross the street to watch that game!"

"What would people expect me to say to that decision?"

And speaking to the media after the game, Luka Milivojević said that he told Salah to tell Michael Oliver to rescind the penalty and this has to be one of the most freakish revelations in a post-match interview. Made a couple more really important saves throughout along with some catches and punch outs that needed attention.
