Liverpool v Crystal Palace player ratings: Mohamed Salah 8, Sadio Mane 9; Gary Cahill 5, Wilfried Zaha 3

Liverpool seal top-four spot in Premier League with 2-0 victory at Anfield

Liverpool ended their Premier League season on a high after beating Crystal Palace 2-0 at Anfield.

Sadio Mane scored twice as the Reds finished third in the table to seal Champions League football for a fifth straight season.

Jurgen Klopp's side have hit by serious injuries to key players and struggled with dreadful home form this season and never looked like retaining their title.

But they rallied to win their final five league games – including a last-gasp goal by goalkeeper Alisson Becker to beat West Bromwich Albion – and force their back into the top four.

"It's outstanding. This season from the outside you cannot understand," said Klopp. "We are Liverpool. You have to win, to become champions, whatever, but it is not always possible.

"In the harder moments you can learn the most, show the most and we stuck together the whole time.

"We were constantly sorting problems. It was so nice we could use the last six weeks to turn this season around."
