On Wednesday night, Liverpool gave another huge step towards the Premier League title. This time, playing at a quite different Anfield Road, the Reds hosted Crystal Palace in Premier League’s 31st Matchday. With no hopes for the title being sealed in this game, Jurgen Klopp’s men put on a true show and ended up grabbing a 4-0 win over Roy Hodgson’s side. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mohamed Salah, Fabinho and Sadio Mane scored the goals for the Premier League Champ… I meant, for Liverpool.

But joking aside, the 30-year dream has never been so close for the Reds. Man City will play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, and in case they don’t win Frank Lampard’s team, Liverpool will be deservedly crowned Premier League Champions with 7 games to go. Wow.

While it doesn’t happen yet, let’s kick-in with the game versus Palace.

Just because there were no fans at Anfield, it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t Anfield at all… Liverpool fans put their flags up at the Kop stand, and the traditional You’ll Never Walk Alone was played as well.

Before kick-off, everyone involved in the match knelt in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Unlikely from what happened at the Merseyside Derby, where Liverpool looked unrecognizable and predictable, this time, the Reds ruled the game and didn’t give Palace a chance. In my personal opinion, it was Liverpool’s best Anfield game in the season.

The Reds walked on and massacred Palace, who didn’t get a single touch in Liverpool’s box and also didn’t have a single shot on target. Alisson Becker was a mere spectator at Anfield.

Alexander-Arnold paved the way for the easy-win, as he curled a free-kick into the top-corner opening the scoring for the Reds. On the verge of the break, Fabinho brilliantly picked out Mohamed Salah in a 30-yard pass, as the Egyptian King got into the box and slotted home at the corner past Palace’s keeper.

After the break, Liverpool got back with the same appetite, as if they were playing in front of 55k people as usual at Anfield. On 55 minutes, Andrew Robertson passed it to Fabinho, who struck a long-range missile which almost ripped Hennessey’s net. What a goal from the Brazil international.

Moments later, a stellar build-up move involving Liverpool’s front-three. Roberto Firmino passed it to Mo Salah, who assisted Mane, who got into the area and fired it low into the far corner. 4-0 Liverpool.

What a win.What a team. Deservedly the Premier League Champions. 2 points away. The Chelsea v Man City game could be the day. The day where a thirty-year-long wait ends. Between deceptions and slips – I’m sorry, Stevie, Liverpool will finally get there. You can even dislike the Reds, and think that they’re fans are “unbearable”. But for the sake of the Premier League, a giant like Liverpool can’t stay 30 years without winning a league title.

Just do it, Chelsea!
