Salah marks Klopp milestone with late victor

Salah marks Klopp milestone with late victor”

Wilfred Zaha went at Trent Alexander-Arnold for much of the first half.

A second successive brace followed the global break, with two first-half goals putting his side in control against Southampton, Liverpool becoming the first side to put three past future signing Virgil Van Dijk this season.

Salah looked to have handed his side all three points in a snowy Merseyside derby, only for a controversial late penalty to hand Sam Allardyce's men a share of the spoils.

Mohamed Salah struck a late victor as Jurgen Klopp marked his 100th game in charge of Liverpool with a 2-1 win over relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.

"I thought that was it, "Au Revoir, see you later", but then it became even more odd". "I think at the end it was absolutely deserved".

"We really took back [players] from completely different countries and time zones, then you have two days - or one-and-a-half - to be prepared".

Sadio Mane then scored in what looked like an equaliser, but it was adjudged offside.

The result puts Liverpool 10 points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea, who play Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, ahead of the Reds' Champions League quarterfinal first leg with Manchester City on Wednesday.

Salah's goal was his 37th of what has been a remarkable debut season with the Reds and Klopp lauded his striking abilities.

Liverpool levelled just four minutes into the second-half when James Milner's drilled cross was turned home at the near post by Mane. Having already been booked for diving, Mane felt he was fouled on the edge of his own box and grabbed the ball with his hand.

Desperately unlucky, but there's surely no way he can sneak a place into Southgate's squad on the back of such little football this season?

But Lallana lasted just four minutes before he limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury.

Joe Gomez's injury, picked up on global duty with England, means that Alexander-Arnold is nearly certain to start against City on Wednesday, and many Liverpool fans are concerned about how he will deal with the pace and trickery of Leroy Sane.

Klopp says "it's too early" to assess Lallana's fitness for the World Cup, adding: "We hope it won't be that serious". Salah scored his 29th goal of the season against Crystal Palace which also turned out to be the match victor for Liverpool.

"It feels like a groundhog day when we play against the top teams", he said.
