Liverpool threw away a three-goal lead and saw their Premier League title hopes dented after Crystal Palace claimed a 3-3 draw last night.
The draw cuts Liverpool’s lead to just one point at 81 points as against 80 of Manchester City.
If City with a game at hand today against Aston Villa wins, the Manchester team will move to the top of the log with two points advantage and just a match to the end of the English Premier season.
Joe Allen, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez had put the Reds comfortably ahead within an hour.
But then Damien Delaney and Dwight Gayle reduced the arrears before Gayle equalized with three minutes to go.
It puts Liverpool one point ahead of Manchester City, who have a game in hand and superior goal difference.
