Last week, Mane became the first Liverpool player since John Barnes to score in three consecutive season-openers and has now kept up his goalscoring trend.

The match was his 150th appearance in English football, and he’s netted six times against the Eagles so far.

As for the match itself, James Milner placed a spot kick past Hennessey to give his side the lead just before the break.

With 15 minutes remaining, Liverpool hit their opponents on the break and Roberto Firmino played Mo Salah in one-on-one.

As the Egyptian stormed towards goal, he was tripped by Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Palace were reduced to ten men as a result.

The visitors secured the three points in stoppage time as another breakaway move saw Mo Salah feed Sadio Mane, who rounded Wayne Hennessey to wrap up the fixture.
