Manager reaction

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: "We came here with ambition. The worst thing that happened to us was scoring, we then lost the ambition. Liverpool came on to us.

"We went toe-to-toe against Manchester United and got a draw, we went toe-tote toe with Liverpool and got the win.

"I thought Wilfried Zaha had one of his best games for Crystal Palace. His defensive work was important too. Wilf had to do a job on Philippe Coutinho and he did that. I was very pleased for him.

"Sometimes it is about our own belief. We have been unlucky in the last few games. We have been good this year and started really well. We need to make sure we capitalise on that.

"I promised the guys an extra day off so fair play to them. They can book some flights now."

Manager reaction

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "Today is a bad feeling - it was not necessary to lose this game. We were better team but for the first 15 minutes we were not on the pitch. We got the goal, we were awake, we started creating chances.

"But after the break, we gave them chances to call us problems. Then we woke up again, but then couldn't make a goal. It feels so bad because it was not necessary. This was not enough for us - we can do more. We have to learn from this."

Stats of the day

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Liverpool hogged possession, dominated territory and had a whopping 22 attempts at goal. But for all those numbers they didn't test Palace keeper Waayne Hennessey enough. The Reds only managed four shots on target, the same as the visitors.

Manager reaction - Klopp

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Jurgen Klopp is the first of the two managers to appear in the Anfield tunnel. And the German reckons that defeat for the Reds was "not necessary". Here's why he thinks that...

Player reaction

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Palace matchwinner Scott Dann: "We knew we would have to come here and play well. We wanted to start fast on the back of them coming back from a long trip from Russia. We let them back in the game, but wanted to show what we were capable of. I think it was a deserved victory.

"We've got pace and power out wide and up front and we can hurt teams. Coming here and winning shows the ambition we have got. Some teams come and sit back but we know we're capable of hurting teams like them."

On being a Liverpool fan and scoring the winner at Anfield: "I have had dreams of scoring here - and I had a feeling before the game that I was going to score. So it is a nice touch. I'll probably get some stick from family and friends but they support me as well!"

Not an England fan but I'd give Pardew that job, far better manager than Hodgson & McClaren who manages his former club #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball.what on earth was Mignolet doing for the winner? Patting the ball back to Scott Dann. Why can he not just catch it. #Bogdanin

Player reaction

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Palace scorer Yannick Bolasie: "We started really fast. The gaffer's tactics were spot on. Credit to the team we got an early goal but Liverpool came back into the game. But we got the winner and managed to hold out."

On Palace's good recent record against Liverpool: "It is the gaffer's tactics, he knows them inside out. We exploited the spaces and today it came off.

"We've been on a bumpy road recently and we've achieved our target today. Three points are massive - it was like a cup final for us."

All over! Scott Dann's grin is wider than the River Mersey. The Liverpool-born Palace defender is the matchwinner at Anfield, his late header condemning Jurgen Klopp to his first defeat as Reds boss. Honeymoon over.

Liverpool huffing and puffing but can't blow the ball into the Palace net. The away end are bellowing their team towards the final whistle.

Noooooooo! Liverpool fans are tearing their hair as Nathaniel Clyne shoots from distance. He's a right-back - he's never going to score from there. Palace fans ironically cheer. Obviously.

Eight minutes, plus stoppages, for Liverpool to avoid a first defeat under Jurgen Klopp. The German, for once, is not grinning. Alan Pardew is however looking as pleased as a bloke who has just found out he is having pie, chips and peas for his tea.

GOAL - Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Scott Dann

Can believe it! Scott Dann goes from defensive hero to potential match-winning hero. The Palace defender, who moments earlier headed away a dangerous Jordon Ibe cross, puts Palace back ahead! The Scouser heads a corner at Simon Mignolet, but reacts quickest to nod in the rebound.

Great defensive header frrom Scott Dann, heading away from his own goal when Jordon Ibe swings in a low cross across the face of the away goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Time for a Palace change. Joe Ledley, him of the caveman beard, comes on for Jason Puncheon.

YELLOW CARD

Nathaniel Clyne has his name taken by referee Neil Swarbrick for hacking down his old Palace team-mate Wilfried Zaha. Yohan Cabaye smashes the free-kick into a red shirt and then wastes the second opportunity by dragging wide.

Very open game here. The ball blows around the Palace box like an autumnal leaf in the wind - but no-one can stick their foot on it to catch it. Christian Benteke tries and fails, then Roberto Firmino smashes over the bar.

GREAT SAVE!

Liverpool 1-1 Crystal Palace

Simon Mignolet has not been forced into much action - but he needs to be alert here. Jason Puncheon lets fly from 20 yards, a deflection off a Liverpool toe sending the ball sneaking inside the left post. But Mignolet leaps across to save.

Adam Lallana tries his luck from distance for Liverpool. Speculative. Never going to trouble Wayne Hennessey, the Palace keeper whistling as the ball sails over.

Nervous? You should be. This match is teetering on the edge. Could go either way. Twenty minutes for someone to find a winner.

YELLOW CARD

Liverpool 1-1 Crystal Palace

Not only has Pape Souare got a headache for bashing his head against the advertising board earlier, he now has a disciplinary headache. The Senegal left-back goes into the book for hauling down Jordon Ibe close to halfway. One more of those and he'll be heading down the tunnel early.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Liverpool 1-1 Crystal Palace

A roll of the tactical dice from each manager. Jurgen Klopp plays his Roberto Firmino card, Alan Pardew responding with Connor Wickham. Firmino replaces Emre Can, while Wickham shakes hands with Bakary Sako. Twenty five minutes for either to come up trumps.

End-to-end stuff! Now it is Liverpool's turn to go close, Christian Benteke again using his considerable aerial ability to climb above the Palace defence. Again. he can't keep the header down though. Roof of the net.

Liverpool 1-1 Crystal Palace

Palace manage to see out that Liverpool corner - and then break quickly. Bakary Sako arrives into the Liverpool penalty area after a brilliant run by Wilfried Zaha down the right, but skews his shot from a tight angle into the side-netting.

Ouch! Top marks for effort for Palace left-back Pape Souare as he desperately tries to keep the ball in play and not go out for a Liverpool goal-kick. But he fails - and crashed head first into the advertising board. He looks dazed and needs some treatment. Palace down to 10...
