EPL: Liverpool pip Crystal Palace

The Senegalese second half goal was all that was needed by the home team to seal maximum points against a tough Frank De Boer's side following a goalless first half.

But Diouf is not fondly remembered in Liverpool - his attitude drew criticism from club legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, while he was no stranger to controversy on the pitch either.

Last season James Milner was played in that position amid a lack of faith in Alberto Moreno, but the England worldwide was limited in what he could do in an unnatural position. We didn't score but we didn't give counter-attacks away.

Against Watford, Liverpool failed to convince anyone they've improved their defence for the 2017-18 season.

Salah embodies what Liverpool are as a unit going forward under Jurgen Klopp; quick, incisive, and devastating on the break.

Liverpool will now look to finish off the job against Hoffenheim and secure a place in the Champions League group stage.

However, Senegal winger Mane finally made the difference, capitalising on a mistake by Luka Milivojevic to slot past Wayne Hennessey with 17 minutes to go.




Big things are also hoped for new striker Dom Solanke.

Barcelona's general manager, Pep Segura, said after Wednesday's defeat by Real Madrid in midweek that the club were close to signing Coutinho, though Klopp maintained his stance that nothing has changed.

"I can have nothing to say about his attitude because since he got the back injury, he hasn't been in training".

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne and midfielder Adam Lallana are still both out, and the trio of Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can and Sadio Mane now look set to miss the game against the Eagles.

'It was clear we had to make changes, especially with Trent.

Crystal Palace will be without Wilfried Zaha (knee), but Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur could feature after returning from injury. The 19-year-old impressed in pre-season. After Ruben Loftus-Cheek got the better of Ragnar Klavan, he squared a flawless ball back into to path of Benteke, who under little pressure smacked his shot into the stands from 6 yards out.
