Simon Mignolet was all smiles with Christian Benteke after Liverpool were 2-1 winners against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Joe Ledley gave Palace a second-half lead against the run of play after Liverpool had dominated the opening 45 minutes.
James Milner received a red card shortly after Palace’s goal to leave Liverpool a difficult task to get back into the game.
But Roberto Firmino capitalised on Alex McCarthy’s mistake to level before substitute Christian Benteke converted an added-time penalty to seal a 2-1 victory.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City following their win at Selhurst Park.
