It was back to business as usual for Salah and co. at Anfield as they demonstrated why they lead the pack at the top of the Premier League table.
The Egyptian scored his 100th Premier League goal as he joined Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho and Sadio Mane on the scoresheet against the Eagles to send Liverpool on the brink of winning their first league title in 30 years.
If Pep Guardiola’s side come out on top, the Reds could then finish the job against them in their next fixture on 2 July.
Asked on his thoughts on Liverpool possibly winning the title on Thursday, Salah said: “I feel great!
“When I came here I said I wanted to win the Premier League with the team. They hadn’t won it for a long time.
“Maybe last year we had a chance, but Man City performed really well – they deserved to win it.
🗣 "It's our time to win it"

“But it’s our time to win it, so it’s great.”
When asked whether he would watch Chelsea vs City tomorrow, Salah sheepily responded that he would be “playing with my daughter,” but there’s no doubt the entire Liverpool squad will have at least one eye on proceedings in London.
Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said the Reds’ win over Palace was “a big step” as he praised his side for their performance.
“Wow. I said it already one time but imagine this stadium would’ve been full today and all the people could’ve experienced it live,” he said.
“I don’t think the game would’ve been better because my boys played like everybody was in the stadium, pushing themselves.
“Tonight was a big step, that’s clear. We’ve all still got to play seven games, if we play like this it’s really not nice to play against us.
“I have to watch the game tomorrow because we play them [Man City] one week later. That’s being professional and doing my job.”
