Roy Hodgson: Why Mohamed Salah will struggle this season

But Klopp was entirely convinced with his side's performance - and particularly had a problem with his fullbacks. Cars are like that.

Mohamed Salah didn't score a goal but was a centre of attraction in the game by winning a penalty and then getting in behind the Palace defence to force Aaron Wan-Bissaka to foul him and get a red card. Mo Salah scored his first goal of the season and the new signings, including midfielder Naby Keita, played well.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sounded less than impressed with his side after their 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace in a Premier League clash at Selhurst Park on Monday. There is no point discussing it. Sakho is a defender and he has to try and defend, which I think he did well.

The penalty decision was a topic of debate for the MNF panel, and Gary Neville believes Salah convinced the referee to award it.

"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". Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

"He should be disappointed if he's not alongside an Alan Hansen if people in 20 years" time when we're thinking of great Liverpool central defenders because I don't there is another centre back who can nearly tick every box, ' he said. It felt like a game Liverpool teams of years past would have folded in whether it be blundering in defense or giving up a penalty it just felt like a very easy game to lose. He's trying to defend. "You have to forgive me for saying what I feel, which is that I don't think we gave away a penalty", Hodgson said. "He is a very good football player and played the position good", continued Klopp, reflecting on the win over West Ham.

"It was not a brilliant performance - our full-backs can play 70 or 80% better - but I'm very happy with the result", Klopp told Sky Sports. "If nobody else sees that I'll be the pariah and if everyone else sees it differently, I'll accept that". I didn't see it back so I can't say, but in the game, it looked like a penalty.
