Champions League: There will be fire, Klopp warns Man City

Mohamed Salah

Salah's strike against Crystal Palace put him level with Didier Drogba for the most goals scored in a Premier League season by an African player.

Liverpool suffered a heavy 5-0 defeat to the runaway league leaders in September after Sadio Mane was sent off for the visitors at the Etihad.

Mohamed Salah's late goal gave Liverpool a crucial win that keeps them in pole position for a place in next season's Champions League, but Alexander-Arnold endured a torrid afternoon at the hands of Palace winger Zaha.

After Mane's equaliser, former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke had two chances within a minute to restore Palace's lead in the second half.

That ties the mark set by Robin van Persie in 2012-13 and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007-08.

"But you saw it against Everton - they have a good crowd - but if you are three goals ahead then it is really hard for them to get into it. Let's hope we can do the same at Anfield".

Asked what he had learned from the sides' two encounters this season, Klopp said: "You should finish the game with 11 men!" Liverpool are now third in the top-flight, 10 points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea. They are fantastic, fantastic players.

"And so we are all desperately waiting for him, and now coming step by step back, and now this - it's a big, big blow for us".

"In other leagues we would be fighting for the title".

"We play against ourselves and say that is the target we have to overcome and we will be able to do it or not able to do it".

"It's competition. I had the same previous year (with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez)".

Salah has scored 32 times in his last 32 appearances for the Merseysiders, building on the six goals that he scored in his opening 10 games after completing his move from Roma. Salah is the Premier League's top scorer with 29 goals, that's one greater than the combined tally of regular Blues attacking trio Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Willian.

Amid a tense atmosphere that saw extra security measures to protect the owners, on-loan Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario eased the anxiety with a 13th-minute opener for David Moyes' side. The best thing was how they celebrated [winning] the penalty.

And Arnautovic ensured West Ham's fans went home happy for once with a superb volley in first-half stoppage time.

A change to a three-man defense worked wonders, as they eventually overcame the Eagles' sturdy performance to take home all three points.

"Hopefully he can help us".

West Ham are five points above the relegation zone, while Southampton drop into the bottom three.
