Liverpool began to get themselves on top until the momentum shifted again, but Palace were unable to capatalise - with Christian Benteke missing two glorious opportunities to score.

Despite having one of his quieter games of an incredible debut season at Liverpool, Salah proved the match victor as he smashed home in the 84th minute.

West Ham are five points above the relegation zone, while Southampton drop into the bottom three.

"Not just him [Salah], Mane and Firmino, all three, they are nearly unstoppable".

Salah, Roberto Firmino and Mane were unable to sprinkle their magic on the contest for large parts, and their efforts often failed to flourish into clear-cut chances.

Liverpool levelled four minutes into the second half when James Milner's drilled cross was turned home at the near post by Mane.

"That makes him a proper striker", Klopp added.


Nearly immediately after, Andros Townsend's run and pass put him into a promising position, but he then snatched at the ball and shot over the crossbar.

Mane claims he was surprised that referee Neil Swarbrick didn't award a spot-kick and insists he never feared being sent off later on. I was surprised he didn't give the foul but in my mind it was not a red card or something because I was sure that this was a foul'. It remains the only league defeat City have suffered so far this season.

The Dutch centre-back said: "It's very exciting".

Klopp, unsurprisingly, has been thrilled with the impact of the former Roma man, and knows he will be key if Liverpool are to progress against City.

Jurgen Klopp's team were under pressure not to lose ground in their ambition of beating rivals Manchester United to second place in the Premier League, but Henderson said: "We were still full of belief at half-time that we could turn things around and that showed in the second-half".

"Maybe his full-backs won't bomb forward as much as they normally do, maybe he will look to toughen up his midfield and he could even have a plan to keep Mo Salah and the rest of the Liverpool forward line quiet".
