Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool | Reds maintain their perfect start with a comfortable win at Selhurst Park

Liverpool beat Crystal Palace by 2 goals to Nil to strengthen their hopes of a title charge this season.

Despite the fact that recollections of sensational breakdown infested the development to the Reds' outing to south London, Jurgen Klopp's side touched base on the back of three continuous triumphs at Selhurst. 

Besides, floated by a 4-0 prevail upon West Ham and an eight-dawn at Melwood, Liverpool took to the field with an unaltered lineup. 

This implied the amazing midfield unit of Georginio Wijnaldum, James Milner and Naby Keita were held, offering help for the imperious Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. 

With their title rivals, Man City, whipping Huddersfield Town the day preceding, the weight was on to anchor another three focuses, and they coolly took care of business. 

Donning white, the guests connected weight right off the bat, with Keita's supply line to the front three especially amazing, however Mamadou Sakho filled in as a steely nearness at the back. 

A misstep from the ex-Liverpool focus back nearly gave them an opening on 19 minutes, notwithstanding, yet Salah was shut down before he could escape. 

Unadulterated splendor from Keita ought to have made the Reds' first, yet in the wake of turning into space in the left-back position and playing an inch-idealize long ball for Salah the Egyptian King neglected to hang it over Wayne Hennessey. 

At that point a slip by from Liverpool's new No. 8 yielded ownership to Andros Townsend in an unsafe territory, with the Palace winger hitting the bar in a near disaster. 

The Eagles meant to play wide to Wilfried Zaha at whatever point conceivable, however the joined endeavors of Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold smothered their key man—with Christian Benteke recognizably drowsy. 

Another blessing from Sakho gave Liverpool their opener on the cusp of half-time, cutting down Salah in the container, with Milner venturing up to change over. 

Minutes after kickoff in the second half Salah nearly scored another, with Andy Robertson threading him through marginally past the point of no return on the break, before Keita cushioned the subsequent reduction. 

A major spare from Alisson to deny Luka Milivojevic's free-kick drew a clench hand pump from Klopp, with the Brazilian noteworthy both in shot-ceasing and, all the more along these lines, his immaculate appropriation. 

The presentation of Jordan Henderson with 25 minutes to play underscored the quality on Liverpool's seat, and enabled Wijnaldum to advance to give ghosting keeps running from profound. 

With official Michael Oliver in the thick of the activity all through, he had a major call to make when the generally great Aaron Wan-Bissaka cut down Salah when through on objective—properly sending off the adolescent. 

Furthermore, the numbers game paid off as Mane got a late pioneer, after another fine break from a Palace corner, winning another essential triumph.

The Reds lost many points last season from winning positions but with this game, it seems like they're on the right track to win many more points this season.
