Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Naby Keita hit the net as Liverpool defeated Crystal Palace to go top of the Premier League on Saturday.
Both goals came from corners with the stars afforded ample space to score which is sure to be frustrating for Eagles boss Patrick Vieira.
Two minutes before the break Salah met Konstantinos Tsmikas’ corner forcing Vicente Guaita into a full-length save but Mane was quickest to the ball and had time to angle a shot back into the roof of the net.
The game was not comfortably in Liverpool’s favour until 12 minutes from time when another corner from Tsimikas was inadvertently flicked by Virgil van Dijk to Salah at the back post and he volleyed home with aplomb.
For the third, Guaita punched Salah’s corner to the edge of the box where Keita waited patiently for the ball to drop before slamming home an unstoppable volley his left foot.
