Liverpool 4 Crystal Palace 3

More proof that we can’t take our eye off the job required. Palace are the divisions odd ball. Can win at the Etihad but can’t win at hone, and hardly ever score at home.This like a heavyweight title fight, the underdog wanting to at least bloody the nose of the pretenders to the throne. The first half was worrying, we had nearly all the ball but didn’t look like scoring whereas Palace hardly touched it but went in one up! Second half was a bit kamikazi, when scored twice in the space of about five minutes it seemed we were on our way. Nope, they got on terms, then we got a third but then Milner gets sent off. We grabbed a fourth with just two minutes left but they wouldn’t lay down and somehow got another. The noise at the end was both exultation and relief.
