The Premier League champions ensured they would top the table at Christmas as they ran riot against the Eagles, scoring seven at Selhurst Park

Liverpool’s 7-0 demolition of Crystal Palace on Saturday means Jurgen Klopp has now won more top-flight games than any other Reds boss in the Premier League era.

Goals from Takumi Minamino, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson, plus two each from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, ensured Liverpool would top the table at Christmas in style.

It was Klopp’s 127th victory in the Premier League, surpassing Rafael Benitez’s total of 126. And, while Benitez was in charge for 228 league games, Klopp has surpassed his record in only 196.
