Jurgen Klopp identifies moment that kick started Salah's incredible season

As it stands, Suarez's haul is a record for a 38-game Premier League season, held jointly with Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/08) and Blackburn Rovers' Alan Shearer (1995/96).

Klopp: I thought Mane was going to be sent off!

Speaking at his post-match news conference on Saturday, Klopp said: "In the moment, nobody should be anxious about our mood".

"I thought that was it, "Au Revoir, see you later", but then it became even more odd".

Asked what he had learned from the sides' two encounters this season, Klopp said: "You should finish the game with 11 men!"

In other matches, Manchester United hosts Swansea while Everton will be home to the league leaders and champions-elect Manchester City.

Having already won the League Cup, City next face a Champions League quarter-final first leg against Liverpool on Wednesday.

There's no two ways about it: worldwide football is generally a drag for most fans of club sides. "Our boys are really on fire".

Klopp accepts it will be hard to knock Manchester City out over two legs in Europe.

Crystal Palace players were furious, but Mane remained on the pitch. Match referee Neil Swarbrick, aided by his assistant, saw through the facade and now cautioned the Senegalese and that moment served to rile up the home crowd. "But if there is a goal conceded, an away goal, I think it could go down to an away goal", he said on LFC TV.

Having gone behind to an early Luka Milivojevic penalty, Mane was booked after being adjudged to dive after taking an age to go down having been clipped in the box.

Lallana was introduced as a substitute just after the hour mark of Liverpool's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, but lasted only five minutes before pulling up with a muscle injury.

Benteke passed up two huge chances to quickly restore Palace's lead as the former Liverpool striker sent an attempted lob well wide with just Karius to beat and then shot over the bar after Van Dijk had been caught in possession by Andros Townsend.

The midfielder's cross from the right wing found Andrew Robertson on the left, and when he played the ball towards Salah, the Egyptian coolly finished low into the bottom corner to secure all three points.
