    Right, that's your lot from me today.

    You can follow live texts on all the rest of today's games on the BBC Sport website.

  2. 'We regret those two chances'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson talking to BBC Sport: "Yes it is a bit of a groundhog day playing against these top teams. We actually played quite well in the second half and created some good chances but we also conceded two goals at the other end.

    "What happens in the penalty area is the difference in the game. Whether it’s a mistake by defenders or excellent play by strikers to create something. Of course we do regret those two (Benteke) chances and other opportunities we had when they were defending desperately, but they had already scored both of their goals.

    "I don’t really like spending my time discussing refereeing decisions and what is right and wrong because that’s all part of the game. The fact is playing against 10 men for the last 25 minutes may not have given us an advantage anyway.

    "It has been disappointing these past few weeks where the team has done well and deserved something form the game but come away with nothing. I don’t subscribe to the fact that the next six games will be easy because the teams around us will be as difficult to beat as Liverpool today.

    "I can only hope we start scoring the goals soon and don’t continue to suffer from the mistakes that cost us today."

  3. 'Tough after international break'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp talking to Sky Sports: "Maximum credit to my players. It's very difficult after the international break because we are all used to a specific training intensity and then the players go away to different teams.

    "You saw it was difficult and really intense today with the atmosphere as it was, but in the end I think it was really well deserved. We got two wonderful goals after a tough start.

    "I think the moment the ball passes the defender you see it is Mo and feel good. It was a very cool finish and long may that form continue.

    On Mane's dive: "I saw the first incident once and it looked like a clear penalty. Yes he (Mane) goes down late but there was contact there. The referee doesn’t agree and says it’s a dive but for me it’s a penalty and no yellow card.

    "The second one is a foul on Sadio and yes he puts his hand on the ball which is a second yellow, so we were lucky in that instance but not over the course of 90 minutes because the first one wasn't a yellow card."

  4. 'It's tough to take'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Palace boss Roy Hodgson speaking to Sky Sports: "It's very disappointing, for them to get the winning goal so close to end of the game it's tough to take.

    "It feels like a groundhog day when we play against the top teams. In the second-half we played well and controlled the ball and created better chances but we also conceded both goals."

    Raghavan: Mane massively lucky today. Ridiculous decision to pick that ball up. Referee too weak to send him off for that and a dive. Karius could have been off too. And Benteke missed two chances. Not sure we deserved the win today, but crucial to get it.

    Laurence: Massive win for Liverpool, if Tottenham beat Chelsea tomorrow then the top 4 is all but guaranteed.

    Johnny: Totally unacceptable for Mo to think one goal is good enough in 90 minutes.

  6. 'Not a Sadio Mane day... Lallana is really down'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp speaking to BBC Sport: "It is usual for us that we need to fight here, especially after a difficult start, but it makes it more special at the end.

    "[The win] was deserved."

    On Sadio Mane's performance, that saw him score, get booked for diving and almost sent off for handling the ball: "For me it's a penalty, it's clear. 0.1 seconds too late going down, but it's a penalty. With contact how can that be a dive? I spoke to the referee at half-time.

    "Around Sadio, there were a few strange situation today and he had to go through 80 minutes of being whistled. It was not a Sadio Mane day today. I thought he would be sent off for handling the ball. I did not understand it but happy he didn't."

    On Adam Lallana's injury: "It is not good, he is really down in the dressing room. He's our boy our best friend. It is really difficult, whatever injury it looks like a muscle one."

  7. 'Benteke didn't even hit the target'

    Though it was against the run of play, Benteke had two brilliant chances in a couple of minutes, he did score and in fact he didn't even hit the target. I think that says it all. How different could it have been if he scored one of those.

  8. 'Gives us momentum for Wednesday'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a big result, We were not at our best, but we kept going and fighting.

    "It is a sign of a good team to win while not playing OUR best. We kept finding way and Mo got another goal to win the game.

    "At half-time we thought we could get back in the game and win it. The lads reacted brilliantly. We grinded out the result and that gives us momentum for the game on Wednesday."

  9. Benteke's bad misses

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool


    Christian Benteke had a shocker today, twice he had the chance to restore Palace's lead in the second-half.

    He has now missed a league high of 20 big chances in the Premier League this season.

  10. 'Palace undone by individual brilliance'

    Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool

    Former Nigeria international on BBC Radio 5 Live

    Crystal Palace played well for almost all the game and were undone by two of the Premier League's top strikers, Mo Salah will make the headlines. You have to be able to defend for 90 minutes.

    Benteke is the guilty man today, had he scored one of those two chances it might have been a different story.

    Liverpool were able to grind out an important result ahead of a key fixture in the Champions League in midweek

    The ball fell to the right man. The Crystal Palace players looking jaded having thrown themselves at the ball.

    It was a cultured cutback from Robertson, Salah with a couple touches to set himself and sends Wayne Hennessey the wrong way.

  16. Post update

    Crystal Palace's twitter account calls the goal a 'Sickener'.

    They have had the better of the half but have missed some big chances.

  17. Salah ties record
