Jurgen Klopp reserves praise for Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk

Roy Hodgson loses at Everton

Mohamed Salah inspired Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace.

Despite his dislike of the VAR system Milivojevic - who is Palace's go to man for taking penalties - has no doubt that Oliver was fooled into awarding the penalty taken by James Milner when Salah went down under a challenge by Palace centre-back Mamadou Sakho.

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher suggested Van Dijk is now in the mix to be hailed as the best central defender in world football and Klopp was equally gushing in his praise for the Dutchman he signed from Southampton for £75m in January. If it's against you, you'll think it's soft.

"Quality costs a specific price, it's with cars like that, with a lot of things like that and with players as well, that's why we paid it", he said referring to Van Dijk's fee.

To make matters worse for the home side. referee Michael Oliver sent off Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the second-half for fouling Salah as he raced through on goal.

"I don't think we did that as well as we should have done". It's a cause for frustration and anger. For me, it was clear, it was not a penalty. If that's a penalty the game has changed beyond all recognition. He's trying to defend.

"There's no way he is looking to foul the player. Liverpool didn't deserve to be leading". Jurgen Klopp's side swatted away West Ham with comparative ease but will know full well that the tie in South London will be a truer test of their title aspirations.

Jose Mourinho refuses to blame his defenders for defeat at Brighton
Brighton had the eighth best home record in the Premier League last season with seven of their nine wins coming at the AMEX. Marcos Rojo is another option, but the Argentina defender is still nursing an injury picked up at the World Cup.

Donald Trump military parade put on hold amid reports of soaring costs
A city official added that the Trump administration requested an estimate from the city this week. The final plan has not been approved by Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, according to local media.

"I didn't ask Mo about that".

"If people can't see that, then I'll be the pariah who only sees what he wants to see".

All that matters at this point in the campaign is picking up the three points in games that have to be won and just putting a little bit of pressure on Manchester City to see how they will handle it.

But Klopp refused to talk up Liverpool's title chances.

"I do not want VAR in this league", he said. "I couldn't care less really", he retorted.

Salah finally evaded the Palace defence when he surged onto Naby Keita's long pass, but the Egyptian's chip sailed high over the bar.

Andros Townsend was closer at the other end, though, seeing a 30-yard curler crash back off the woodwork.
