Palace's task was made harder 15 minutes from time when defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka was sent off for bringing down Salah in a goalscoring position.

Luka Milivojevic says Crystal Palace won't be be crying after a controversial penalty call in the 2-0 Liverpool defeat.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Manchester United made an enquiry for Virgil van Dijk in December of a year ago, but it was too little too late, as the Dutchman was already having his medical with Liverpool ahead of his proposed move to Anfield.

Set to come up against some familiar faces when they visit Selhurst Park later today, Liverpool will look to make it two wins out of two outings as their Premier League campaign gets back under way in the Capital as the Reds square up with Crystal Palace.

A James Milner penalty on the stroke of half time and late Sadio Mane clincher secured all three points for Liverpool, but it was Van Dijk who caught the eye with a commanding performance at the heart of the Liverpool defence. I know we have to play much better but tonight I'm absolutely fine with that. Once again, his distribution was unreal, he was nearly a field player today with the way he knocked the ball around, and that is something so new to this Anfield side and will really add a special dynamic throughout the season.

"I remember in 2006, United hadn't won the league for three seasons".

Palace boss Roy Hodgson was livid with Oliver's decision and is adamant that centre half Sakho was playing within the rules.

Goals from James Milner and Sadio Mané sealed the points for the visitors.

"There's no way he is looking to foul the player".

"We are not a team who will cry over that penalty, we just carry on".

"You could see that in the last period of the season, they were very consistent with results". If that's a penalty, then the game has changed beyond all recognition.

"There's no way he's looking to get contact on the player himself". "If nobody else sees that I'll be the pariah and if everyone else sees it differently, I'll accept that".
