Liverpool are playing one of the toughest away matches in the Premier League today as they face Crystal Palace.

However, Klopp surprised everyone when the teams were announced.

Liverpool eleven didn’t feature Mohamed Salah, contrary to the expectations.

When asked about it by Sky Sports, Klopp replied:

“But Mo [Salah], yesterday was the first session where everything was fine, but it was a bit late then, to be honest.

“So we decided to bring Ox in a good moment and that’s all.

“Mo having him here helps a lot, probably for a decisive part of the game, that’s how it is.”

Liverpool are currently nine points ahead of Manchester City. The Citizens will host Chelsea at 18:30.
