Former Liverpool star Michael Owen feels that in some ways little has changed after tonight’s shock draw with Crystal Palace.
The BT Sport pundit took to Twitter after the match, which saw his old side lose a 3-0 lead to Palace at Selhurst Park and hand the momentum to Manchester City in their final two games. Liverpool will now need a major slip-up from City in one of their two home games against Aston Villa and West Ham United to have any chance of winning their first title in 24 years, but Owen feels that was the case anyway due to the Reds’ inferior goal difference. Once the dust has settled, a bit like Man City v Sunderland, that point for Liverpool may not be the end of the world, Owen tweeted. A helping hand was always required from Aston Villa or West Ham. That’s still the case. Win, lose or draw, Liverpool have been outstanding. Owen added that Palace deserve credit for their part in a truly sensational Premier League encounter. Fair play to Palace, what a season. The fans at Selhurst Park are top class. Games like that can only happen in Premier League, he said.
