Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp jokes about 'angry manager' motivation

Milner had a penalty kick midway through the match that he converted and then Mane finished off the hosts on a deadly counterattack in added time, carrying the ball from midfield into the box and finishing off a pass from Mohamed Salah.

"It seems now that we are creating a category, that if you are not in this unbelievably thin category somewhere, where if you haven't won the Premier League title or the Champions League, your career has been a waste of time".

Klopp was evidently happier with his side's result than with their performance, as he singled out individuals for criticism.

He told Sky Sports: "We can play better football".

Crystal Palace suffered their first defeat of the season after a 2-0 reverse at home to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp's team nearly added a second goal before the interval after Salah rounded Wayne Hennessey and Sadio Mane missed his chance.

"I was not 100 per cent sure tonight in the first half that we would score".

'I do think it was a penalty when Max Meyer is wiped out in the area (in the second half) when Virgil Van Dijk dives in.

"I couldn't care less really".

From simple passing that builds fluid football, to incredible calmness under pressure and those classic long-ranged diagonals, his distribution was at its very best against Palace. "I don't think the big teams ever win here comfortably".

The whole video displays his impressive performance but look at 2:10, 2:22 and 2:57 for particular passing brilliance from the game. There is no way he is looking to get contact on the player at all. If people can't see that, then I will be the pariah who only sees what he wants to see.

"I take some comfort and pride in that, but it's not going to change my disappointment and anger at how we came in at half-time losing 1-0". They tried to cause us problems with the long balls.

With Firmino saying he is targeting a Premier League triumph with Liverpool, it is of the utmost importance that the smaller sides in the league don't pose too much of a threat to Klopp's team.

It was only natural then that one Liverpool supporter made a decision to cobble together his individual highlights from the game and title it: 'Alisson The Quarterback Against Palace • 2018/19'.
