Player Ratings: Liverpool vs Crystal Palace - August 20th 2018

Jurgen Klopp Roy Hodgson Liverpool

Mohamed Salah inspired Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace.

"It's a very tough game".

"I am not interested in sending statements to Manchester City or anyone else".

Taking advantage of their numerical superiority, Jurgen Klopp's side made sure of extending their 100 percent start to the Premier League season thanks to Sadio Mane's goal in stoppage-time.

The Egyptian king failed to score but was the centre of attention as earned his side a controversial first-half penalty, drew a red card for Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the second half and then set up the crucial second goal.

While the Senegal global is likely to be instrumental once again for the Reds, his team-mate Mohamed Salah usually takes all the plaudits.

Oliver was trailing the counter-attack but demonstrated remarkable speed by pursuing the attack and managing to keep up with the breaking Liverpool duo.

"I thought we pushed them very hard".

The visitors had won on their last three visits to Selhurst Park but struggled on this occasion to open up the determined Eagles, managed by former Liverpool and England boss Roy Hodgson, in Monday's clash.


"It's, for us, a big step, because if you've watched us a little bit more often you'll know if we're not brilliant we usually lose!"

Liverpool have now made it two wins from two in the Premier League, boosting talk of a title challenge.

Crystal Palace also is 1-0-0 in league play after a season-opening 2-0 victory over newly-promoted Fulham.

The hosts came closer to winning and squandered a few great chances in the final minutes. Correa had only goalkeeper Neto to beat and easily found the corner.

But the top highlight was Sane's goal. It is too soon to say anything after two match days.

"You can discuss whatever you want - just do it without us".

BERLIN (AP) - Axel Witsel scored a dramatic equalizer on his debut and Marco Reus got the late victor as Borussia Dortmund beat Greuther Fuerth 2-1 in the German Cup on Monday.

After rattling the crossbar with a long-range shot in the first half, Andros Townsend struggled to find an end product in the second half with Andrew Robertson enjoying another excellent match.
