Jurgen Klopp praised the “massive achievement” of Sadio Mane scoring 100 goals for the club as the Senegal international kick-started the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace which took Liverpool top of the Premier League.

Mane became the first player in the competition’s history to score against the same opponent in nine consecutive matches, beating Robin van Persie’s eight in a row against Stoke, and his close-range strike just before half-time made him the 18th man to bring up a century of Liverpool goals in his 224th appearance.

In the second half Mohamed Salah scored for the fifth time in six matches this season before substitute Naby Keita hit a sweetly-struck left-footed volley to complete the win, made possible by Mane’s landmark strike.

“People forget around these 100 goals he worked incredibly hard, defended for us, pressed high, counter-pressed, created goals, set up chances, so the 100 goals are just one, there are so many numbers that are important,” said Klopp.

“I am really happy for him he could reach it, a massive achievement in the glorious history of this club that only 18 players scored 100 goals.

“Nowadays players are not normally as long at clubs so I am really happy I could work so long with him.”

Klopp made six changes – including a whole new back four with a debut for summer signing Ibrahima Konate – from the midweek Champions League win over AC Milan and they had a perhaps understandably shaky start.

However, after settling down they could have been out of sight before half-time but then had to weather a stronger Palace challenge in the second half and Klopp was full of praise for the performance, although he was reluctant to read too much into it.

“We are not here today for sending any kind of sign for the outside world, we were here to fight against a really strong Crystal Palace team,” he added.

“At the moment it (the feeling) is more frustration because we knew how difficult this game was and I believe we played some really good football.

“But the frustration really was to concede those three goals on set-pieces as you expect, especially playing here, to concede goals from open play.

“There was a lack of concentration at times and we paid for that with the quality of the players they have as well.”
