Liverpool have stumbled on the Pemier League title race with a shock home defeat to Crystal Palace at Anfield.

The Reds missed a chance to go top of the Premier League following a shocking defeat to the Eagles.

A 14th-minute goal by Eze was enough to condemn the Reds to a defeat. A one moment of brilliance saw the visitors open up Liverpool defence with a good combination play.

Olise had found Michelle at the byline. Michelle laid it off to Eze, who beat Liverpool goalkeeper Allison to race the Eagles into the lead.

It was a one-sided game going forward with Liverpool muscling out all in their arsenal to stage a comeback, all to no avail.

With enough time to play for, Crystal Palace held on to run out with an unlikely victory at Anfield.

The damaging impact of this loss to Liverpool’s Premier League title hopes is inestimable with Manchester City and Arsenal showing no signs of slowing down.

The defeat comes just days after the Reds suffered a chastening 3-0 defeat to Atalanta at the same venue in Europa League quarterfinal first leg. It is fair to say the Reds treble hopes is fast crumbling with back-to-back defeats in the two remaining competitions where their hopes for a treble lies.

While it is not yet over, Jurgen Klopp will be under pressure to return to the drawing board and return the team to winning ways following the shock defeats.

Previously tipped as favorites to add the Europa League trophy to their treble list, the 3-0 loss to Atalanta has overturned the odds, making it seem more of an impossibility. However, a summary conclusion on the Reds chances in the European second tier cannot be drawn either; not when the 2019 astonishing comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League makes the equation.

In the Premier League, there is still a lot to fight for but their chances is now dependent on the results pulled by Arsenal and Manchester City, who are strongly in the race.
