Jurgen Klopp was in an exceptionally good mood following Liverpool's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday and celebrated by handing out beers to fans after the game.

The Reds closed the gap with table-toppers Manchester City to nine points, and Klopp's men have a game in hand too.

Goals from Virgil van Dijk, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Fabinho gave Liverpool an important win following which Klopp was overjoyed and showed his appreciation to fans who made the trip for the game by stepping off the team bus and handing them bottles of beer.

Speaking after the game, Klopp said: "A big three points today for us, really big. Intense period again. Now a little bit of a breather, which helps.

“At least for most of us, not for all of us – the Brazilians have to go [for international duty], Taki [Minamino] has to go. But the rest can take a deep breath and then we start again.

" It was a bit Jekyll and Hyde football today. You could see how good we can be. We were incredible in the first 35 minutes. Then after an intense week – away at Arsenal – I don’t have any real explanation but the intensity might be one. We became sloppy in the last line.

"...I said to him [Alisson] now, thank you for saving our backside again. He said ‘that’s my job’. It is very helpful to have a world-class goalkeeper at the back."
