Liverpool move closer to Premier League title

Liverpool are one step closer to securing their first league title since 1990 after cruising to a 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

They secured an early lead with goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah, but it was Fabinho's brilliant strike that caught everyone's attention. Salah then finished it off with another strike at the 69th minute.

This puts Jurgen Klopp’s team at 23 points clear of Manchester City on the league table.

And, should City lose or draw against Chelsea on Thursday, it will see Liverpool lift the trophy

"I’ll watch the game tomorrow night not to prepare a celebration, I’ll watch the game because we play against City a week later,” Klopp said. “Whatever happens tomorrow night we have no influence on it, so I’m not too much interested to be honest.”
