“We are very happy obviously. That was our goal when we set foot on the pitch. We need all the points we can get to be sure to stay in the Premier League – that is our mission. That is why I accepted the challenge with Palace, and we need to be the best we can as a team to succeed.”

Much of Liverpool’s anger was because our own defenders, especially Dejan Lovren, performed so poorly, when a centre-back of Sakho’s ability is being lent to someone else.

He’s played a huge part in helping them climb away from the relegation zone, but we’ll never know how our fortunes would or wouldn’t have changed if he’d lined up for us all season…

In terms of ability, he’s exceptional, but his attitude (as displayed at the weekend) often leaves lots to be desired, and as fans, it’s our job to trust Klopp’s judgement.
