James Milner gave Liverpool the lead with a controversial penalty on the stroke of half-time after Mohamed Salah went down following a slight touch from Mamadou Sakho. If people can't see that, then I will be the pariah who only sees what he wants to see. "If it's against you, you'll think it's soft".
While Klopp avoided overly praising any of his players, as he clearly expects more, he highlighted the lack of scrutiny over Van Dijk's fee as testament to his ability.
Palace boss Roy Hodgson was furious with the theatrics of Salah, saying after the game: "My frustration is I don't think that's a penalty". "I want to win football game and that's what we did tonight". It felt like a game Liverpool teams of years past would have folded in whether it be blundering in defense or giving up a penalty it just felt like a very easy game to lose. Sakho is a defender and he has to try and defend. "Liverpool didn't deserve to be leading".
Clark County's air quality to shift between moderate and unhealthy
Doctors say if you feel unwell at all during the period of poor air quality to see a doctor immediately. You want a mask that either has "NIOSH" or "R95", "N95", or "P95", or higher printed on the packaging.
In a typical all-action display by Salah, the Egypt forward was also the player fouled by Aaron Wan-Bissaka that earned the Palace right back a straight red card in the 75th minute because he was the last man. Palace went forward with everything to get the equalizer, and Mane made a decision to put matters into his own hand, finding the back of the net for the third straight match against Palace.
"If I don't say that those are not penalties both for and against my team I will be very disappointed in myself".
"It was going to be very tough, we knew before it was going to be a big fight, but we prepared very well, everyone was up for it and you could see that as well". "I don't know a lot of centre-backs in the world who can deal with Christian Benteke like Van Dijk did", said Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp. Even in the warmup I saw [Wayne] Hennessey and thought: 'Wow, that's really difficult!'
Liverpool's second successive win of the season leaves them in second place in the Premier League table, level on points with five other clubs and trailing reigning champions Manchester City on goal difference.
