seychellesFor Liverpool, only two words were needed.
Job done.
Their flying start to the new Premier League campaign goes on. Played two, won two, scored six, conceded none.
Job done. "Pretty cool," as Jurgen Klopp would say.
Klopp knew that this game, under the lights and in front of one of the Premier League's noisiest home crowds, would tell him more about his side than last week's Sunday stroll against West Ham at Anfield. He knew they would not have things all their own way against a speedy, tenacious Crystal Palace outfit, that their concentration and their character and their speed and their toughness would be tested. Roy Hodgson's side, he said, are "just a really good football team" – one who would thoroughly examine the Reds' credentials
>That they did. Liverpool's second win of the new season was far uglier than the first, but no less important. If they want to be genuine challengers instead of just the aesthetes' choice, these are the games they have to negotiate. They have to be solid as well as spectacular
>Last season, you were more likely to see the Reds win 7-0 than 1-0. Their last win by that scoreline came a-year-and-a-day ago, ironically against Palace. Sadio Mane, in stoppage time, made sure that run continued. The scoreline probably deserved the gloss in truth
>There was no goal for Mohamed Salah here – though he had a vital hand in both – and none for Roberto Firmino either. Mane raced clear at the end to notch his second of the season, but this was not a game for Liverpool's front three to steal the sh
br>In front of him, Virgil van Dijk did what Virgil van Dijk does, winning header after header against Christian Benteke and ensuring that the Reds' penalty area was kept secure and that their attacks had a starting point. What a class act the former Southampton man is, what a difference he has made to this team. Benteke has been a thorn in Liverpool's side many times in the past, but he was pocketed here by the Dutchman. As Palace chased the game, the Belgian was taken off. He looked relieved. Alexander Sorloth, his equally physical replacement, had no joy eith
br>Alongside Van Dijk, Joe Gomez underlined his emergence as a serious centre-back option for Klopp this season. The England international made one crucial tackle to thwart Wilfried Zaha in the first half and seems to be growing into the role alongside his £75 million colleague. Dejan Lovren will expect to return once fit, but the issue is less clear now than it was a fortnight a
br>Never flashy, always effective. He'll play many, many games this season, despite Klopp's plethora of midfield options. Fabinho, the £40m summer signing, was not even named in the matchday squad for this one; he has a job on his hands as the likes of Milner and Juventus trøjor Steven Gini Wijnaldum raise their game, but that's what a side like Liverpool needs. It needs options, for the days when the sun shines and the days when it rains, for the games like last week's and the games like this one. With Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana used off the bench here, Xherdan Shaqiri not and Daniel Sturridge getting just 60 seconds, the strength of the squad looks good. For now
br>Klopp cut a satisfied figure at his post-match press conference, and no wonder. He had spoken in the build-up of the need to "deliver, again and again and again." The idea, he said, was not "to celebrate all week and then fall hard" and his side heeded his warnings. They weren't perfect, but they were good enough
br>They looked like contenders pre-season, and nothing we have seen in the opening two games has changed that. Manchester City have set the tone, but Liverpool look ready to foll
br>Strap yourselves in…
