Four minutes of injury time to be played.
GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Keita gets a third for the Reds as Salah's corner is cleared 25 yards by a Guaita punch but the Guinean midfielder shoots home with a tremendous volley.
Henderson is replaced by Origi.
Zaha puts in a dangerous cross that Fabinho clears.
Ward is given a yellow card for a dangerous foul on Tsimikas. Pure frustration there.
Salah is booked for removing his shirt.
GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Van Dijk flicks on Tsimikas' corner and Salah volleys home at the far post. A clinical finish.
Jones replaces Jota for Liverpool, a defensive switch which shows how much respect Palace are being treated here.
Tsimikas brings down Gallagher, who was taking a 360-degree turn, and receives a yellow card.
A real chance for Eduoard as he is found by Ward from a deep cross but his touch is heavy and Alisson dives at his feet.
Eduoard plays in Ayew down the right flank and the non-scoring forward tries an audacious effort from long range which goes behind.
Eduoard looking dangerous and shoots from the edge of the box but his effort is half blocked by Van Dijk and Alisson gathers.
Keite shoots firmly from 25 yards but Guaita is behind it to parry away.
Edouard the super sub from last week comes on for Benteke.
Tsimikas swings a free kick into the box which Van Dijk wins at its highest point but heads over the bar.
Ayew appealed for a penalty but it hit Konate's thigh then ricocheted off his elbow so was never gonna be given.
A really tame attempt from Ayew clips the dead ball into the midriff of the middle player in the Liverpool wall.
Keita comes on for Thiago who goes off injured.
Gallagher is fouled right on the edge of the Liverpool box in a central position.
Fabinho sees his effort blocked by the wall and then Salah's follow up is also blocked.
Gallagher pulls down Henderson giving Liverpool an opportunity to shoot at goal from 25 yards or so.
Great run from Zaha who reacts best to Konate's sloppy pass and races to the by-line before pulling back for Gallgher who would have had a great chance to score if his first touch was not heavy.
Salah shoots from outside the box but Guaita has it easily covered.
Liverpool get us back underway...
An entertaining game which Palace will feel disappointed to go into the half behind, but the Reds just about worthy leaders.
Gallagher's corner is cleared out to Ward on the edge of the box but his shot is easily saved by Alisson.
GOAL FOR LIVERPOOL! Mane nudges home from close range to bring up his 100th goal for the Reds. Salah met Tsimikas' outswinging corner at the front post and Guaita had to make a full length dive to his left but no one except Mane was in the vicinity and the Senegal striker gleefully slammed home.
Henderson picks up a yellow card, a wise one pulling Zaha's arm to stop him running at the Liverpool defence.
A possible penalty looking at a replay just before Jota's miss. Tsimikas had no eyes for the ball when he barged into Benteke putting him to the floor as Zaha's cross came from the left flank.
What a miss! Guaita makes a fantastic save from Thiago's header but running through on the rebound Jota fires the ball clipping the crossbar then sailing into the crowd.
Another good Palace block, this time from Ward to stop Jota having a shot at goal.
Liverpool really threatening now but Kouyate makes a good block on the edge of the box from Henderson.
Tsimikas' cross finds Salah at the back post but he volleys the ball against the ground and it bounces comfortably into Guaita's grasp.
Milner plays a 45-degree ball from a corner to find Jota at the near post but he muffs his kick.
Ayew plays through Konate who sticks with the centre forward and deflects his shot wide of the goal.
Palace looking comfortable at present. Vieira will be happy with how his side are looking.
Benteke easily wins a header from Gallagher's corner but the ball flies high over the bar.
Zaha goes down under a challenge from Konate but not enough contact for a penalty.
Andersen does well running backwards to head back to his keeper when it seemed like Jota was through on goal.
Fine save from Guaita, stopping from Henderson at his near post after Mane's deep cross found Henderson who struck the ball firmly on the volley.
A very tricky task for veteran makeshift defender Milner against Zaha today but twice in quick succession he makes key interceptions to stop the flying winger run behind the defence.
Thiago goes into the book for a foul on Ayew.
Ward only half clears Fabinho's cross giving a chance to Jota but he misses the target.
At the other end a good cross from Milner but Jota cannot get his header on target.
Benteke hits the post after McArthur heads back Gallagher's corner but the linesman had his flag up for offside.
So close from Zaha early on as he gets a slight touch on Gallagher's cross which looks like looping over Alisson but the keeper recovers to tip around the post.
Palace get the game underway...
The sides are about to come onto the field at Anfield now.
With Manchester United and Chelsea playing tomorrow, Liverpool have the chance to go top of the table with a victory.
With matches in quick succession in the EPL and Champions League, Klopp is shuffling the pack. Alexander-Arnold and Matip are unavailable, but the other two members of the defence against AC Milan Gomez and Robertson, are starting on the bench tonight. Mane returns to the starting line up for Origi and Thiago starts in midfield ahead of Keita.
Unsurprisingly, Patrick Vieira picks the same side who dismantled Tottenham last Saturday.
So, very much a different looking Liverpool defence of Milner-Van Dijk-Konate-Tsimikas. There could be some joy for Palace if they attack as well as they did against Spurs last week.
And these are the Eagles facing the daunting challenge at Anfield.
This is the xi Jurgen Klopp is sending out at 3pm.
