Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace: Reds on the verge of winning Premier League title after Anfield rout


Liverpool are on the verge of winning the Premier League for the first time in their history after thrashing Crystal Palace 4-0 at Anfield.

If Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday, then the Reds will be champions.

It’s been a long wait – lengthened by the coronavirus pandemic – but the title is close.

Liverpool were unplayable against Palace, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both on the scoresheet.

But it was Trent Alexander-Arnold who gave Jurgen Klopp’s side the lead with a sublime free-kick in the 23rd minute.

Salah doubled the scores before half-time and there was already a feeling that this game was over.

Liverpool didn’t have to wait long after the restart for a third goal. Fabinho thumped home a cracking strike from 30 yards out in the 55th minute.

And Mane got on the scoresheet when he tucked the ball home following a neat passage involving Roberto Firmino and Salah.


So, come Thursday evening Liverpool could be champions of England for the first time in 30 years.

They’ve been head and shoulders above everyone else this season. Nobody can say they don’t deserve it.

The only question is whether this is the start of a dynasty.
