But amid difficulties, Liverpool suddenly found a bright way thanks to hero Mane.

Mane’s efforts helped Liverpool make a difference on a day when his teammates played below their strength.

Thanks to this goal, Liverpool had their first victory in the Premier League, bringing joy to more than 50,000 home fans present at Anfield.

Coach Klopp replaced five positions compared to the win over Hoffenheim in the Champions League play-off round in midweek.

`I shuffled the squad so much because of the impact of the two matches against Hoffenheim,` Klopp explained before welcoming representatives from London.

Klopp was pleased when the home team won with his series of personnel changes.

Robertson had the most impressive performance for Liverpool, right in his first appearance at Anfield.

But Liverpool almost had to pay the price because of the `rules of football` at the beginning of the second half, starting from the left wing guarded by Robertson.

This missed shot seemed to wake Liverpool up.

Salah’s appearance in the middle of the second half helped Liverpool apply more pressure, which then confused Palace and created an opportunity for Mane to score.

Mane’s tireless efforts were finally rewarded, by Milivojevic – Crystal Palace’s holding midfielder.

`Mane and Robertson do not coordinate well in this situation,` Klopp dissected after the match.

The victory over Crystal Palace helped Liverpool collect four points through the first two matches.
