The Reds had to produce a second consecutive comeback to snatch the 3 points against Roy Hodgson’s side, which was reduced to 10 men.
The London team took the lead just before the one hour mark after a cleanly taken penalty kick from Jean-Philippe Mateta looked to have led the host to unlikely victory.
However, Palace’s task was made significantly harder when Jordan Ayew was dismissed for a second bookable offense, which left his team down to 10 men.
The Merseyside responded in an instant as star striker Mohamed Salah bagged his 200th goal for the club to draw the score level.
The Reds were struggling to create chancing, even tough being the more aggressive team, but now the initiative was fully in their hands.
A stoppage time winner from Harvey Elliot gave Jurgen Klopp the edge and ensured them the 3 points.
They now sit top with 37 points, one ahead of Arsenal before the Gunners game against Aston Villa this evening.
