Premier League (5), Anfield

Goals: Mane 43′, Salah 78′, Keita 89′


The Reds welcomed Palace to Anfield, with only a win satisfactory for the hosts as they looked to go top of the table.

After missing a number of good chances in the first half – Diogo Jota somehow failed to convert from two yards out – Liverpool went in front through Mane’s close-range finish before the break.

Palace enjoyed a strong spell after the restart, but Mohamed Salah fired home his customary goal to ease the nerves inside Anfield.

Substitute Naby Keita then volleyed home a stunning effort, as Liverpool reached the league’s summit.
