Liverpool fans have had their say on their side letting a 3-0 lead slip at Crystal Palace.
Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge is now out of their hands.
The Reds went into last night’s game against Crystal Palace knowing that they needed to secure a big and impressive win to put the pressure back onto Manchester City in the Premier League title race.
At 3-0 up everything was looking very good but a defence, which has leaked goals throughout the season was split right open, allowing Palace to come back into the game over the final quarter and secure a point.
Liverpool are now relying on Manchester City dropping points in their game in hand tomorrow night against Aston Villa.
A win for City puts them two points clear at the top of the table.
The title race will go down to the final game of the season this weekend but any manager would admit they’d rather have things in their own hands than be relying on another side to do them a favour.
Regardless of the title, it’s been a cracking season for Liverpool and they are in a position that very few would have tipped them for at the start of the campaign.
The side has Champions League football to look forward to and while there would have been plenty of tears similar to Luis Suarez’ last night, Liverpool are still very much on the up.
That Champions League qualification is something which should allow them to keep Suarez ahead of next season, with Real Madrid circling the striker like a hungry shark waiting for an opening to attack.
The job for Brendan Rodgers this summer is improving his squad and addressing weaknesses so that when Liverpool are 3-0 up in games next season, the opposition has no choice but to fold with no way back.
Here’s what Liverpool fans made of their side letting a three goal lead slip.
What the hell happened last night? Bad dream we threw away 3-0 lead in less than ten minutes. Ok, pick ourselves up & hope Villa win. #lfc— Dave Lamb (@lotusdave) May 6, 2014
Khamikhazi defending from #LFC last night. I'm shocked how a 3-0 lead can be thrown away in 11 mins— Steve-O (@Steveo_LFC) May 6, 2014
Awake this morning my scarf above my bed, Liverpool last night enters my head, Tears? Title Died? Nah, for me nothing but pride. Love #lfc— Mighty Tumbleweed (@OneManTeam79) May 6, 2014
Granted #LFC surpassed expectations this season but this was best chance to win the title. They may not have another as good for some time.— Richard Buxton (@Richard_Buxton_) May 5, 2014
6 May. Top of the league. 81 points. 99 goals scored. And still disappointed. #LFC have come a long, long way in a very short space of time.— Melissa Reddy (@1stLadyOfFooty) May 5, 2014
It's beyond poor form to have a go at the players on twitter. They've delivered a season far beyond our expectations. So many muppets— LFC_Agenda (@LFC_Agenda) May 5, 2014
You know it has been a good season when you're gutted despite going top of the league with one game to play #LFC— Kop Magazine (@TheKopMagazine) May 5, 2014
Ow LFC fans. Worry not. The Villa will scrape a draw and Sam's mighty Hammers will own the Mancs at the weekend.— Cennydd Williams (@CennyddW) May 6, 2014
