Goal: Mane 73′

The Reds took to Anfield for the first time this season on Saturday afternoon, taking on a Palace side who had enjoyed positive results in Merseyside in recent years.

It certainly wasn’t an enthralling contest, but with Mane poking home with just over 15 minutes to play Liverpool were able to seal their first three points of 2017/18.

Here’s how supporters saw Saturday’s victory on social media and our forums.


There was a mixed reaction to Klopp’s team selection…

“Interesting team selection that’s obviously heavily influenced by next Tuesdays game, it will probably be seen as good management if we perform well and get the result but I’ve got a feeling there’ll be a lot of angst if we don’t, let’s just get the job done…”

Steve in the comments section.

“Flanno to come on and score a 40 yard worldie.”

Genius on the forums.


Robertson impressed early on in his debut…

“so we finally have a LB!”

Serge SL in the comments section.

“Robertson has played 15mins for Liverpool and already looks better than Moreno.”

Tim Clap on Facebook.


The Reds went into half-time level…

“We’ve been absolutely bang average. Klopp delusional if he really thinks this squad is good enough. Only positive, Sturridge looks sharp and Robertson impressive.”

Outstanding Terrific Character in the comments section.

“We are all over them but nothing to show so far. Very impressive with Robertson. Sturridge looks good also. Firmino looks uncomfortable. Overall 1st half lots of possession no goals.”

Salah’s introduction was widely welcomed…

“Here we go, the 2 pocket rockets together.”

SirBillShankly on the forums.


But it was his opposite number who put the Reds in front…

“Solanke has made the difference. Give the lad a decent run Jurgen. He might just get our season motoring!”

theres always tommorrow on the forums.


And the Reds held on for a priceless home victory…

“Get in you Reds. 3 points in the bag is all that matters and a clean sheet to go with it. YNWA.”

Justin Case on Facebook.

“Easy game. Not sure why… Didn’t had my heart in my mouth whenever crosses or corners came in.

Genius on the forums.

“Forget Coutinho, Sadio is our Mane man.”

Jack Johnson on Facebook.
