Liverpool edge closer to title with victory at Anfield
Liverpool edged closer to securing the Premier League title with a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
Trent Alexander-Arnold zipped the Reds into a 23rd minute lead with an exquisite free-kick from distance and Mohamed Salah doubled the advantage just before the break with a neat finish.
Fabinho added a third in the second stanza, drilling in from range before Salah sent Sadio Mane through to add a slick fourth.
The result means Liverpool require two more points from their remaining seven fixtures to be crowned champions – or they will clinch the prize for the first time in 30 years should Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night.
The Reds’ delayed title celebrations can begin if Chelsea beat Manchester City, but Liverpool fans may not mind waiting a week longer. In their next game Liverpool travel to the Etihad Stadium, and could win the league at the home of the reigning champions.
