Liverpool extended their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with a solid win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Sadio Mane's opener was added to by Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita as the Reds fought to a 3-0 triumph over the Londoners.

The result means Jurgen Klopp’s side have now gone 15 games without defeat in the top flight and, at least temporarily, moved to the top of the Premier League table.

But there was plenty that went unnoticed or under the radar during the 90 minutes at Anfield.

Salah the slayer

Mohamed Salah was up to his old tricks again on Saturday, thumping home a goal at the Kop end and then ripping off his shirt to reveal he still spends a fair amount of time working out.

In fact, the Egyptian clearly has muscles where few people believed there actually could be any.

And the all-action forward earned plaudits from the home crowd by the way in which he regularly helped out emergency right-back James Milner during a tense second half.

Not least when clever footwork and a neat turn inside his own penalty area left Wilfried Zaha on the lookout for a new pair of ankles. Ouch.

Milner man of the moment

Milner enjoyed himself against Palace, racing up and down the right wing with the enthusiasm of someone half his age and having the most touches, passes, passes in the opposition half, crosses and tackles of any player on the pitch while also covering the most distance and completing the most sprints.

That said, quite how he avoided a booking after gleefully dumping a succession of opponents to the turf only referee Andy Madley will know.

Clearly, though, it impressed Palace boss Patrick Vieira, who twice during the post-match activities pitchside took time out to go and have a chat with the Liverpool midfielder.

With Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa having also had a long chat with Milner last weekend, is this a case of people tapping up the veteran for next season? Time will tell.

Klopp all smiles

Jurgen Klopp clearly loved Milner's performance having stepped in at the last moment to replace the ill Trent Alexander-Arnold.

“This guy loves being a right-back!” exclaimed the Reds boss as he passed the veteran speaking to the media after the game, before walking away laughing his head off.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mane was given his own special treatment as he undertook post-match interview duties, the Senegalese serenaded by supporters left in the stadium.

The beaming smile on the forward revealed exactly what he thought of that attention.

Robertson goes faulty

Andy Robertson was given a well-earned rest at the weekend following a succession of important games.

But that didn't mean there was any need for his name to be missed out on the regular pre-match roll call.

Not that Peter McDowall, the regular MC before kick-off, had much to do with it, his mic cutting out just as Robertson was next on the list.

Still, it made the anticipation of whether Divock Origi's name would be read out all that more exciting (spoiler alert: it was).
