Traore – who looked a danger in attack throughout – assisted team-mate Raul Jimenez who cancelled out Jordan Henderson’s first-half header.
Speaking after the game, Traore offered his congratulations to Liverpool who with that win went 16 points clear at the Premier League’s summit.
He told BT Sport: “We don’t forget they are a great team, an amazing team and one of the best – or the best in Europe.
“Congratulations to them, how they are going in the league but we fight. We will fight to the end.”
Jurgen Klopp was impressed by the 23-year-old’s performance as he told BBC Sport: “He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable.
“What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
Liverpool will now face Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday before travelling to the London Stadium to take on West Ham on Wednesday evening.
