They needed 73 minutes to score the opening goal but Liverpool eventually secured a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Sadio Mane was the hero, firing home from close range after the Eagles failed to clear.
While Manchester United have made an incredible start to the season, a 3-3 draw at Watford and 1-0 win over Crystal Palace isn’t going to convince many that Jurgen Klopp’s side can win the Premier League title.
But it’s early days and the German will be delighted to get that first win on the board.
Liverpool are desperately trying to keep hold of Philippe Coutinho right now, rejecting a £118m bid from Barcelona on Friday.
But there's a growing sense that Mane has replaced the Brazilian as Liverpool's most important player.
Check out the 25-year-old’s goal below.
Mane wanted a hug from Klopp
There was a funny moment after Mane's goal. He ran toward Klopp and attempted to hug his manager, only to be shrugged off.
Klopp wanted his players to get back to their positions and focus, not to engage in any premature celebrations.
Check it out below.
Fans on Twitter reacted to the incident.
Fortunately for Klopp and Liverpool, they were able to hold on for all three points to secure their first win of the 2017-18 Premier League season.
Klopp: 'I loved the goal'
After the match, Klopp admitted he thought that playing in front of a home crowd did the trick for his side.
"It was a hard job," he said, per the Express. "I have no idea how much we had the ball but it was a lot. We had moments in the first half but had to be more patient because they were deep.
"We didn't score but we didn't give counter attacks away. Second half we did it better, the first part was really good.
"We were really awake and defended really well and I loved the goal because it was not a clear situation. It was a counter pressing situation.
"We had other chances but I am completely happy with how did the job today.
"Anfield helps a lot I think today it was the difference."
