Liverpool were expected to lose against Crystal Palace - Klopp

Liverpool were expected to lose against Crystal Palace - Klopp

The Reds extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points after the high-scoring encounter, but the Liverpool defence conceded as many goals at home yesterday as they had all season.

Liverpool are out of both domestic cups, which'll ease the workload on a squad that's heavily reliant on a few core players.

Palace got back on terms through James Tomkins, before Salah put the Premier League leaders back in front with 15 minutes left to play.

A deep back-four protected by a defensive five-man midfield was disciplined and created to frustrate but the ever risky Wilfried Zaha and the under-rated Andros Townsend offered a threat on the counter-attack.

The Egyptian sealed the win with the 50th Premier League goal of his career, becoming the first Egyptian and the eighth African to reach that milestone, though he only did so courtesy of a mistake from Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni. "At times we did and it's a great three points". Then, obviously it was not 100 per cent clear for the boys: do we control it now or do we still chase the game or whatever.

"We'll analyse the game to see what we didn't do as well but, overall, we've got to be delighted again with the result". But in the end the most important thing for us is the result and we had a good result.

"First half they played well and they played well also (in the) second half but they were staying (close) to the box and it was a tough game". They will face ninth-placed Leicester in their next game on January 30. There are different ways to win football games, today we had to dig in with all we had and the boys did that, especially in the second half.

"Phil is at Barcelona and as I know he fits really well and everything is fine". If something was here before I came in, it was character. The midfielder received a second yellow late in the game and is now suspended for Leicester City. In that moment we had plenty of options and now we don't have them. "I'm really proud, a few things happened that we don't really need, we're a bit short now on players but we have a few days and need to use the time now for recovery".

"We talked to each other (at halftime) that we had to be strong mentally because this is a tough time", said Salah.

Just as they did in the shock win over Man City, Crystal Palace punished Liverpool on the break and the home side required a second half comeback to secure all three points.
