Sadio Mane added on to Taki Minamino’s early goal with a second to cushion Liverpool’s lead.
The Senegalese doubled the lead after taking a deft touch with his heel to turn past former Red, Nathaniel Clyne, before smacking an effort into the bottom-left corner.
Crystal Palace have not let Liverpool enjoy an easy lead, applying constant pressure to the visiting side, which had been well-dealt with by Fabinho who continues to deputise in the heart of defence.
It was a marvellous spin by Mane to create the space for the shot, with the Reds enjoying a superb first-half at Selhurst Park.
