Gary Neville believes Jurgen Klopp will be thrilled with another clean sheet after Liverpool FC’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The Reds made the trip to the English capital fresh from a 4-0 victory over West Ham United in their season opener at Anfield earlier this month.

Liverpool FC stuck with the same starting XI for the trip to Selhurst Park in a clear sign of faith from German head coach Klopp.

James Milner broke the deadlock from the penalty spot after former Reds defender Mamadou Sakho brought down Mohamed Salah in the penalty area.

Palace were reduced to 10 men following a last-ditch tackle on the Egypt international as Liverpool FC continued to threaten on the break.

Sadio Mane netted his third goal in two Premier League games to secure three points against the Eagles to keep pressure on defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

Liverpool FC have kept clean sheets in their opening Premier League fixtures with Brazil number one Alisson Becker replacing Loris Karius in goal.

Former Manchester United defender Neville believes Liverpool FC boss Klopp will be delighted with a clean sheet on Monday night.

“They got the counter attack goal,” Neville told Sky Sports. “It’s what really good teams do. It wasn’t relief.

“It was a performance they expect now to get where they want to get to. The most pleasing thing will be that it’s zero against them.”

Liverpool FC will host Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield in their next Premier League fixture on Saturday afternoon.
