Crystal Palace came from behind to defeat Liverpool 2-1 and made a huge dent in the Reds’ Top 4 hopes, with Manchester United favourites to overhaul them. Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring for Liverpool in the 24th minute with a stunning free-kick, before Christian Benteke pulled one back for Palace before half time.

The former Liverpool striker then came back to haunt Jurgen Klopp with a 74th minute winner that gifted Sam Allardyce his first ever win at Anfield as a manager.
