Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed that Virgil van Dijk is proving he is worth the world-record fee the club spent on him in January.
Liverpool are now the only team in the league yet to concede a goal this season, and Klopp talked up the level of Van Dijk's display after he helped repel a Palace side that caused problems in the final third.
"Virgil's performance was really, really good. Quality costs a specific price. Cars are like that. Lots of things are like that. Players too," he told reporters.
"Nobody thinks about that now, which is good. In this market at the moment, he's at least worth it."
Liverpool will look to maintain their 100% start to the season at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.
