"Nobody thinks about that now, which is good".
When asked to rank where Mane would sit alongside the Premier League's best players, Marriner told ESPN's Extra-Time Show: "Mane is the type of player you pay money to watch".
Goals in injury time of either half from James Milner and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a valuable victory in an encounter that Crystal Palace dominated large parts of. Mo Salah scored his first goal of the season and the new signings, including midfielder Naby Keita, played well.
"So it comes from the 'keeper and all the way through the back four and all the way through the team and the way we play, everyone defends together".

"If people can't see that then I'll be the pariah who sees only what he wants to see, and if all you guys see it as something different then I'll accept it".
"In these moments [the closing stages of the game] the fuel is really low and maybe the players need a bit of help from an angry manager - "run or I will kill you" - and they did that with a fantastic counterattack". I saw that in the warm-up from [Wayne] Hennessey practising and thought, wow, this is going to be really hard.
"He was really, really good-I said it already, it's obvious", he said. He definitely touches him so there's no question it was a sending off, but I don't think he was looking to clip his heels - he was genuinely trying to get his foot on the ball but didn't succeed.
"I do not want penalties for my team in that way".
"Quality costs a specific price, it's with cars like that, with a lot of things like that and with players as well, that's why we paid it", he said referring to Van Dijk's fee.
"I thought we could have done better, but we expected Palace to be that strong", he said. If that's a penalty than the game has changed beyond all recognition.
