Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp jokes about 'angry manager' motivation

"2-0, all cool", he added.

Mane secured victory in the third minute of stoppage time when he ran onto a pass from his own half by Salah, advanced half the length of the field, and rounded the goalkeeper to shoot into an empty net.

Meanwhile, Klopp insisted he had no interest in discussing potential title challenges so early in the season after his side made it two wins from two games to start the new season. "I couldn't care less really", he retorted.

"Over the next three or four years, if Liverpool could win a league or a Champions League, I think Van Dijk has the potential to actually go down alongside Alan Hansen if we're talking about Liverpool's best ever teams - that's how good he is and how good he can become".

"If people can't see that then I'll be the pariah who sees only what he wants to see, and if all you guys see it as something different then I'll accept it".

So it was clear that - despite the result - Klopp wasn't completely happy after the game but his post-match interview looks incredibly tame compared to Roy Hodgson's. We had some good chances. I don't think that's a penalty. I know we have to play much better but tonight I'm absolutely fine with that. I do think it's a penalty in the last minute when Max Meyer gets wiped out by Virgil van Dijk, but these things happen. We knew before the game it would be.

"There's no way he is looking to foul the player".

There is a genuine debate over the penalty and it has certainly caused division amongst neutrals with BBC pundit Chris Sutton somewhat sitting on the fence.

Salah has previous for diving and incensed Palace fans were quick to aim "cheat" chants at him, but there appeared just enough contact to warrant the spot-kick.

Asked whether Zaha can become Palace's Le Tissier, Hodgson told reporters: "I have an enormous respect for Matt Le Tissier".

Was Oliver correct to award Liverpool the penalty or should it have been disallowed?

Any team trying to compete for the Premier League title will need a bit of luck along the way but the feeling amongst Kopites is that justice, not fortune, benefitted them last night.

The Reds are back in action on Saturday when they take on Brighton at Anfield, who beat Manchester United 3-2 on Sunday.
