Salah was fouled by Mamadou Sakho inside the penalty area at the end of the first half, allowing James Milner to score from the spot and put the Reds in front.

"Sometimes refereeing decisions go against you and it's disappointing and a cause for frustration and anger, but if you ask me about the team's performance I think it was very, very good. Liverpool didn't deserve to be leading". If all you guys up there see something different, then I will accept that. "I don't know a lot of centre-backs in the world who can deal with Christian Benteke like Virgil van Dijk did".

Liverpool kicked off the season with a bang after breezing past West Ham 4-0 at the London Stadium in their opening game of the season before continuing their flawless start with their comprehensive victory over the Eagles on Monday night.

It was by no means the free-flowing, effervescent football Liverpool fans have become accustomed to under Jurgen Klopp, however showing they can win the hard way can only be a good thing.

But Klopp refused to talk up Liverpool 's title chances. I am not interested in sending statements to Manchester City or anyone else.

The Premier League remains the only major, top-flight division in European football in which VAR will not contribute to the refereeing of matches, but despite his sense of injustice Milivojevic said: "I do not want VAR in this league".

"I couldn't care less really".

The closest Palace came to scoring was when Andros Townsend curled a long-rage shot against the crossbar in the first half.

To make matters worse for the home side. referee Michael Oliver sent off Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the second-half for fouling Salah as he raced through on goal.

Klopp's men finally made the breakthrough just seconds before half-time.

Salah had also had a further attempt deflected away from danger when, in the 44th minute, he was challenged by Sakho, his former team-mate.

Liverpool, inspired by the excellent Virgil van Dijk, weathered the second-half revival Palace had mustered until being reduced to 10 men and secured a second successive clean sheet to prevail despite offering only glimpses of their attacking best.
