The 31-year-old can be seen approaching the crowd and gesturing towards who took the shirt, insisting he give it back.

Stewards are also alerted to the situation and make an attempt to sort it all out.

Manager Jurgen Klopp can be seen in the background celebrating with supporters after a tough away trip.

Liverpool took the lead inside eight minutes through Virgil van Dijk's header.

The defender rose high to power home an Andrew Robertson cross.

Robertson turned provider once again just past the half hour mark to set up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who volleyed past a helpless Vicente Guaita.

Palace had a number of chances before half-time however, with Alisson making saves from Michael Olise and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

The Eagles grew into the contest and got their reward after the restart, as Odsonne Edouard finished a fine team move.

Patrick Vieira's side kept up the pressure before Liverpool won a controversial penalty in the 89th minute.

Diogo Jota went down following a challenge from Guaita and referee Kevin Friend was asked to consult VAR monitor.

He reversed his initial decision and Fabinho buried the spot kick to secure all three points.

Vieira was furious with the decision at full-time and didn't understand how a penalty was given.

He vented to The Guardian: "That was a really poor decision from the referee.

"I looked at it from every angle and I still don’t understand how that can be a penalty. In meetings with the referees they explained to coaches that contact is part of the game, and if there is not obvious contact there is not going to be a penalty.

"Here, there was no way Jota – who I believe was really smart, and the referee quite naive – could get the ball back and try to score. That decision took our hope away of getting back into the game and getting a point."

Liverpool have closed the gap at the top to nine points after City's 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday.
