      Great win, we stumbled defensively and were still able to grind out a win. That’s what champions do.

      As for Salah’s “dive”. Yea he embellished but he was clearly being pulled back by Sakho and anywhere else on the pitch that’s likely a foul so why not in the box?

      Yeah, had some fun on twitter with the crystal'zaha doesn't dive' palace fans

      I went for Milner for MOTM.

      Playing out of position but was always open for a pass.

      He had what was going to be a goal until Mo got a toenail onto it as it was crossing the line.

      Great resolve by the squad to brush away a tough opponent and to keep pressure on City.

      This must be the first time a red carded player got a MOTM vote.

      He did play well at RB for the most part considering he was up against Zaha.

      Today was Roy Hodgson's first ever loss at Anfield as an opposing manager in the away dugout...although in fairness to him he more than made up for it when he was managing in the home dugout. Was also somewhat surprised that today was his first game managing at Anfield since 2012.

      When we pulled those two goals out of the bag in the first five minutes of the second half I thought we'd go on to batter them.
      Then our dreaded zonal marking at that corner gifted them the equaliser.
      How Jimmy Milner got his elastic right leg to Fabinho's cross ball for the third was brilliant.

      Even when we went down to 10 men Mane and Salah were through on goal only for Mane to fluff it opting to take it on himself instead of playing the easier pass to Salah.

      Shaq was a bit quiet when he came on !

      Fantastic game of footy. A game we ground out and didn't give up on against a decent Palace team.

      Thought the crowd were excellent today, singing all through the game.

      Yeah that's a great idea. Get a defender out of the side you've just scored 4 against. Great thinking that...oh and Zaha of course because any player who has a decent game against us we just HAVE to get don't we?  Actually why don't we just buy the whole f**king Palace side while we're at it? Yeah, let's carve out this side that is top of the table and replace it with a side that is FOURTEENTH in the table.

      Put three past Southampton and bought VVD, put 5 past Hull and bought Robertson, Put 7 past Roma and bought Allison

      Wan Bisaka is undoubtedly a real talent at RB to be fair. Certainly destined for better things than Palace.

      Not sure he will be on our radar though.

      Another massive win. Throwback to 2017 that one - our pre Robbo and VVD days - made plenty happen going forwards but shaky at the back. The latter not surprising with our injuries, but very good to see our forwards/general attacking play can still bail us out when we really need it.

      Gave Hendo MOTM, although Mo was really good today as well.

      Liverpool verdict - Jürgen Klopp's Reds remain on course to become Anfield legends after Crystal Palace victoryThe scenes after the final whistle spoke volumes.

      A pumped up Jürgen Klopp embraced his captain before delivering a flurry of fist pumps in front of the Kop and beating his chest. Anfield let out a collective roar.

      Liverpool had emerged unscathed from a rollercoaster afternoon to move seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

      There were more twists and turns than a Hollywood blockbuster as the Reds overcame a major scare to keep their title charge on track . You could hear the groans coming from Manchester.

      On the day when Liverpool honoured the legendary Bob Paisley, Klopp's side also delivered a nod to the past. This was a throwback to their previous guise when they were potent going forward but horribly vulnerable at the other end.

      Andros Townsend gave Crystal Palace the lead before a crazy, chaotic second half laced with drama.

      Two quickfire goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino appeared to have put Liverpool in control but James Tomkins' header restored parity.

      Julian Speroni's blunder enabled Salah to make it 3-2 but the nerves were jangling again after James Milner was sent off for a second booking.

      Sadio Mane eased the tension by slotting home in stoppage time, only for substitute Max Meyer to crank it straight back up again. Hearts were pounding but the hosts held on.

      Talk about being put through the wringer. Much more of this and Liverpool will have to start issuing Valium with the match tickets.

      You could pick plenty of holes in such an erratic performance but all that matters is that Klopp's men found a way to win.

      When the pressure was cranked up, they refused to buckle. Instead they stood tall and showcased their powers of recovery .

      The character and hunger of this side is just as impressive as their quality and work ethic.

      Roy Hodgson was no stranger to defeats at Anfield during his disastrous spell as Reds boss. But, remarkably, this was the first time he had lost in L4 as a visiting boss having won with West Brom and achieved draws with both Blackburn and Fulham.

      The contrast between the mess Hodgson left behind eight years ago and what Klopp has created is absolutely vast. Where Hodgson alienated supporters and dampened expectations at every turn, Klopp has galvanised a fanbase and given them the belief that they are on the cusp of something truly special.

      With 60 points, Liverpool have never been in better shape after 23 matches of a league campaign. Their current tally is one more than this stage in 1893/94 and 1987/88.

      The players' warm weather trip to the Middle East is richly deserved. The 11-day break before Leicester City visit Anfield comes at a good time with so many injury concerns.

      Fabinho limped off against Palace with discomfort in his hamstring and if he's facing a spell out that would be a major blow.

      The influence of the Brazilian midfielder continues to grow. He shone once again after being restored to his usual role.

      With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum both sidelined, Klopp had been forced into a reshuffle with Milner deputising at right-back and Joel Matip returning at centre-back.

      The other change wasn't expected with Naby Keita preferred to Xherdan Shaqiri. In truth it didn't work with Keita struggling badly during a disjointed opening 45 minutes.

      Being stationed on the left of Klopp's 4-2-3-1 formation did him no favours, but the Guinea international didn't help himself as he was weak both with and without the ball.

      Predictably, Liverpool dominated possession but they did precious little with it before the break.

      Palace’s game plan worked a treat as they sat deep, defended in numbers and then hit the Reds on the counter with the pace of Townsend and Wilfried Zaha down the flanks.

      Matip was thwarted by Speroni after latching on to Milner's pass but the 39-year-old stand-in keeper wasn't tested often enough.

      Roberto Firmino curled over and Mane's header was easy for Speroni as the Reds continued to huff and puff.

      Matip and Virgil van Dijk threatened from set-pieces but Liverpool were stunned by Palace making the breakthrough 11 minutes before the interval. Zaha darted past Milner and his pull back was slammed home by Townsend.

      With Mamadou Sakho then getting away with handling in the box, the sense of unease inside Anfield continued to grow.

      Two goals in the opening eight minutes of the second half transformed the mood as Liverpool played with much greater tempo and intensity.

      Van Dijk's long-range strike looped up after hitting James McArthur and Salah made a tricky finish look ridiculously easy as he hooked it in.

      Then Firmino was allowed to turn and he darted away from Tomkins before his low strike deflected off Cheikhou Kouyate and into the bottom corner. It was Liverpool's 1,000 goal at Anfield in the Premier League era.

      Captain Jordan Henderson led by example as he thundered into tackles with Milner and Andy Robertson equally combative.

      Yet the usual calmness, composure and control we've come to associate with this team was conspicuous its absence.

      Some shoddy marking enabled Palace to equaliser midway through the second half. It was far too easy as Tomkins climbed to convert Townsend's corner.

      Klopp took action with the ineffective Keita replaced by Shaqiri. Within four minutes of making the change the Reds' lead had been restored.

      Fabinho's searching pass was expertly turned back across goal by Milner and Speroni inexplicably palmed it towards his own net.

      Salah pounced and forced the ball over the line to make it 19 goals for the season in all competitions and strengthen his grip on the race for the Golden Boot.

      Once again Palace rallied with Jeffrey Schlupp flashing a header wide. The visitors were given a numerical advantage late on when Milner collected two yellows in quick succession – both for chopping down Zaha. The vice-captain could have no complaints.

      Liverpool's fourth goal was testament to Robertson's never-say-die spirit as he brilliantly kept the ball in play and teed up Mane, who cut in off the left and slotted past Speroni.

      When Meyer then halved the deficit, it was back in the melting pot for an excruciating final few seconds.

      From Kenny Dalglish to Graeme Souness, Ian Callaghan to Jimmy Case, cherished names were out in force on a day when tributes were paid to Paisley and former Reds winger Peter Thompson.

      Klopp's current crop remain bang on course to join them in the pantheon of Anfield legends.

      Waiting for motd. listened on 5 live but difficult to get a grasp of the game on there. Mental, just mental.
      Not sure how my ticker held out, just glad of the well earned 3 points.
      Have to hope Fabs hammy is only a minor.
      On to the next one, enjoy the rest lads, and come back fully recharged.
      Only another 14 to win 😁

      Shearer is wrong about the Salah "dive"...Sakho clearly pulls at Salah's left shoulder...but if you have a agenda and your on TV you can ignore evidence.

      Shearer off the pitch is losing credibility for me. Slight go at management, then went for the cushy TV job.

      I don't disagree that there's a bigger deal being made out of it because it's Salah but it's still a dive. He went down about 3 seconds after the contact.

      No if you look it wasn't the kick...yes that was a second or two before Salah goes down...it was Sakho who pulls at Salah's left shoulder.

      Is there enough for Salah to go down..impossible to say but Sakho pulls at Salah's left shoulder. Look at Salah's left shoulder..not at his feet and you will see the pull. Just on about 4.30 seconds of that footage.

      Hendo my MOTM.
      Thought he was fantastic.
      A proper captains display
      The second half comeback was fantastic.
      Yes we conceded two more goals BUT we kept our heads up and clearly the players never doubt their collective resolve and ability to not give in and continually push forward intelligently and go for it.
      That test will serve them brilliantly.

      kicked in the ankle, shirt pulled and arm around his throat, it was not a dive.
