Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has said that the Reds’ point away at Crystal Palace would be “ironic” if it was decisive in the Premier League title race. Liverpool surrendered a 3-0 lead at Selhurst Park to come away with a 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace which, while putting the Reds back on top of the table, hands Manchester City a clear advantage in the Premier League title race. It means that Man City now just require four points from their last two games to win a second league title in three years, due to their superior goal difference, starting with Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium tonight. However, should Man City lose either of those games, with the second at home to West Ham United, and Liverpool beat Newcastle United at Anfield on the final day of the season, then that point away at Crystal Palace could potentially be the difference between a first league title in 24 years and nothing.
That is how former Reds player and manager Dalglish is choosing to look at Liverpool’s situation, believing that it would be “ironic” if the point at Crystal Palace turned out to be decisive in the title race. He wrote on his Twitter account: “Wouldn’t it be ironic if that point at Palace was decisive in our title race. Won’t know until Sunday’s games. ”
