Jurgen Klopp: Philippe Coutinho situation no distraction to impressive Liverpool

Sadio Mane

"He is a really good player, but it is how it is with specialist left full-backs, it is hard - you play or it is possible you are not in the squad", said Klopp, who has picked previously out-of-favour Alberto Moreno at left-back so far and omitted James Milner, who performed the role last season.

The goal lifted the tension around Anfield as Liverpool secured their first league win of the season following last weekend's frustrating 3-3 draw at Watford. "I have no idea how much we had the ball but it was a lot", he said.

De Boer will be without Wilfried Zaha against Liverpool due to a knee injury, a major blow after Palace lost their opener 3-0 to Huddersfield Town.

Missing Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne and Philippe Coutinho through injury, Liverpool had precious little to really cheer until Mane struck to defeat a determined Palace side.

In the past, I would've anxious about this game, especially after Palace's opening day defeat (and the fact they've won their last three games at Anfield). They want to strike back I'm sure but, again, it's Anfield and we have to show this.

"A centre-back by trade, the 6ft 2" defender was a huge help as Liverpool successfully kept the threat from set-pieces to a minimum, even looking more promising going forward than many would have foreshadowed, a fantastic whipped cross to Mohamed Salah the highlight of his attacking game. Jurgen Klopp has selected the players to capitalise on winning the ball in key areas. They represent a realistic opportunity for De Boer to get some wins on the board.

Man United sink Swansea 4-0
And Pogba was asked after the game whether he was concerned he was about to be sent off when Moss blew for a foul on Olsson. Two minutes latrer, an attempted Swansea attack move broke allowing United to fly forward on a quick counter-attack.

Yes, they played some good football but when a new manager comes in, the results are what can blind people unfortunately.

Anfield is the worst place to test new tactics, and the Reds will attempt to be rampant against a side who have garnered success against them in the past.

Liverpool have won their opening Premier League home game in each of the last four seasons. The Frenchman spent six months at the London club last season but has returned to Liverpool as he looks for a new club.

Frank de Boer managed two teams so far in his career - Ajax and Inter Milan - with contrasting end results.

Christian Benteke has scored five goals in his previous three PL matches at Anfield as an opposition player, more than he has at any other away ground in the competition.
