Coach Jürgen Klopp and his Liverpool celebrated their 19th win of the season with a show of strength. The league leaders prevailed 4: 3 (0: 1) against Crystal Palace thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah and kept pursuers Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur at bay.
Klopp raved about the victory of Salah. "He's just world-class," the 51-year-old said of his striker: "It's a great relief, it was a tough job."

In addition, Roberto Firmino (53) and Sadio Mane (90 + 3) were successful for Liverpool, with Andros Townsend (34), James Tomkins (65) and former Schalke Max Meyer (90 + 5). , The final phase had to survive Liverpool to tenth, because James Milner (89) had seen yellow-red.
