players' rating against Crystal Palace:
Comfortably dealt with Palace's set-piece efforts but could only watch Townsend's shot crash against the crossbar. Saved second half from Milivojevic & Benteke.
The outlet down the right, saw a lot of the ball but was let down by some iffy deliveries into the area. Defended solidly, however, & improved.
Helped encourage centre-back partner Gomez throughout the game, dominated Benteke to the point the striker was hooked. His height was such a bonus at set-pieces at both ends of the pitch.
Great tackle to deny Zaha on one Palace counter, read play well. Unruffled by the home forward line, his partnership with Van Dijk continues to grow.
Caught out when too close to Wan-Bissaka, a mistake he didn't make again. Found more space in which to break forward as Palace pressed after the interval. Decent.
In the nominal holding role, kept play ticking over in midfield, helped deal with the long balls and always made himself available for a pass.
Industrious enough with a smattering of quiet class. One robust but fair challenge left Zaha upset. Caught by Van Aanholt, though. Composure to convert from the spot.
His subsequent ball forward should have resulted in a goal. But a slack one then prompted a Palace attack that saw them hit the bar. Good in patches.
Should have done better with his lob when released by Keita. But despite not at his best, still earned a penalty from Sakho, provoked a clear red card for Wan-Bissaka, provided an assist for Mane.
Dropped deep so often that it must have been a required tactic from Klopp. Decent enough in possession but not at his sharpest. Improved a bit after the break.
The visitors' biggest threat going forward. Thwarted after one good run down the left and always willing to mine the left flank. Quieter second half but got through a ton of work until brilliantly tucking away the second.
Kept things ticking over in midfield.
