Palace gave the hosts a scare early on, with Alisson alert to deny Wilfried Zaha before Christian Benteke’s header hit a post from the resulting corner.
Liverpool broke the deadlock just before half-time when Salah superbly met Tsimikas’ corner and his header was rebounded for Mane to finish from close range.
Palace were grateful to Guaita for keeping out Mane and Salah before substitute Odsonne Edouard missed a chance to draw level, miscontrolling when one-on-one with Alisson.
Liverpool doubled their score as Salah expertly volleyed past Vicente Guita off a corner at the back post with 12 minutes remaining.
Naby Keita volleyed in a glorious third volleying home superbly from the edge of the box to seal a win that takes Liverpool top, unbeaten with 13 points.
