Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign has continued this weekend as Jurgen Klopp’s side cruised to a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Liverpool were forced to survive a few flurries of Crystal Palace pressure but their world class talents of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane eventually won the day for Klopp.

Despite the end result it was Palace who looked to carry the early threat with former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke powering one against the post.

However, with Patrick Vieira’s Palace unable to offer a consistent threat before the break, Liverpool slowly forced themselves into the ascendency.

Salah’s drive was beaten out by Vicente Guaita before the Spaniard clawed away Thiago’s towering header.

And with the Reds slowly going up the gears it was inevitable they would find a breakthrough as Mane steered home his 100th Liverpool goal.

Liverpool were forced to ride the storm after the break as Palace dug in and Guaita continue to frustrate.

But in the end, the sheer quality on display was enough as Klopp’s men eased on through in the final 10.

Salah’s quick thinking at the back post allowed him to lash home Virgil Van Dijk’s knock down before Naby Keita stretched his legs from midfield to rocket home a third.
