Palace are going to give many a team fits with their athleticism on that small pitch. They are going to be hard to break down. But I do question any manager that doesn't have Salah man-marked when in possession. Letting him roam around slow-coach CBs looking for the quick vertical ball is unforgivable. It is their only outball and managers have had 3 years to adjust.

Well, Mane is their other outball. But I agree.

I'd like to point out that West Ham literally gave James Tomkins away to Palace, and he's now a far better defender than anything West Ham have in the side.

Almost the same scenario as when Wan-Bissaka tackled Saha, this time Mané holds his ground. Lightning fast on the counter

Salah is the highest player when Pool are out of possession. See, Mane just received the ball from Salah who was highest again. Salah typically has little or o defensive responsibility. Klopp has spoken on it.
