“Not in the driving seat now” – Supporters react to Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Liverpool saw their first-half lead slip as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday, leaving the Anfield crowd stunned.

Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace

Premier League, Anfield
April 23, 2017

Goals: Coutinho 25′; Benteke 43′, 74′

Taking on a Palace side battling to avoid relegation, it was always going to be a difficult afternoon for Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds.

But after Philippe Coutinho broke the deadlock with an excellent free-kick, it was hugely disappointing to let the points go as Christian Benteke’s brace struck his old club.

With just four games left to play before the end of the season, and with Man United producing a 2-0 win away to Burnley earlier on Sunday, this was a frustrating result in the Reds’ top-four pursuit.

Here’s how supporters reacted to Liverpool’s 2-1 loss at home to Palace on social media.


Teenager Rhian Brewster’s inclusion was a surprise…


Coutinho wowed Anfield with his opener…


Benteke’s equaliser saw Liverpool’s defence questioned…


And Sakho’s celebration came under debate…


Lovren was berated as Benteke headed Palace in front…


And supporters were left to rue a pivotal defeat…
