Before this weekend, Liverpool had conceded just three Premier League goals at Anfield this season.

Incredibly, that tally has now been doubled thanks to Crystal Palace.

Palace travelled to the league leaders and scored three times.

However, it was Liverpool who came away with all three points thanks to a nervy 4-3 victory.

Mohamed Salah was the hero once again as he bagged a brace to take him two goals clear at the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts, ahead of Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But do Liverpool fans have their little mascot to thank for Salah’s match-winning performance?

‘Inside Anfield’ showed the scenes inside the tunnel ahead of kick-off and the mascot’s reaction when he spotted Salah coming out of the dressing room.


The mascot chanted Salah’s name in encouragement and got a little wave from the Egyptian.

Goalkeeper Alisson also enjoyed the mascot’s reaction and gave him a little tap on the head in approval.


Take a look:

Lovely stuff from the young mascot - and it may have given Salah that little bit of motivation needed to win the game for his side.

Ok, probably not but Salah would have no doubt enjoyed it.

And it was something that Liverpool fans also enjoyed after seeing the adorable clip on social media.

Check out the reaction:

Salah and his teammates now have a little rest before their next match when they host Leicester next Wednesday.

The gap at the top of the table could be down to just one point by then with Manchester City taking on Newcastle 24 hours prior.
