Liverpool look to ramp up top four bid

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino scores against Crystal Palace

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino scores against Crystal Palace

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp hinted at his frustration after Crystal Palace came from behind to win 2-1 at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Reds are now third with 66 points, six clear of Manchester United, having played two games more.

The France worldwide, who has helped Palace keep four clean sheets in seven matches - from which they have taken 16 points and beaten Chelsea and Arsenal - will be ineligible against his parent club and that gives them a problem.

The Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Crystal Palace will be broadcast on NBCSN.

And Liverpool legend Carragher isn't as confident as he was before the Palace about Liverpool finishing in the top four.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had spoken of the threat Benteke posed if they allowed Palace to provide service to him and he was not happy the visitors had such an easy time achieving the feat.

Philippe Coutinho gave the Reds the lead with a sumptuous free-kick in the 24th minute but Benteke once again haunted his former club, finishing a swift counter-attack from close-range then nodding home a second-half corner. However, before the game had restarted, he was seen shaking hands with Mamadou Sakho - a player on loan from Liverpool at Palace.

Jose Mourinho's side won at Burnley earlier in the day to move to within three points of the Reds with two matches in hand - which is the same number as fourth-placed Manchester City have with only a two-point deficit.

"Trying to do that last dribble or trying to do that last flick or trick to show (Liverpool) what they might be missing".

Liverpool have a chance to consolidate their position in the Champions League qualification spots when they take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday, while three of the top four are in FA Cup semi-final action.

"Only if we let it slip", Klopp said.

Palace have now beaten Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool this month, with the nine points gained from unlikely sources more than the difference between them and the bottom three after Hull and Swansea won on Saturday.

"I will tell you what might be and what might not be when we get safe".

Palace have strengthened their chances of avoiding relegation with an impressive run that has brought five wins and a draw in their last seven league games.

After a slow start following his appointment in December, Allardyce has now guided the Eagles to seven league wins in 2017 - one more than they managed under predecessor Alan Pardew in the whole of 2016.
