Liverpool held in drab draw at Crystal Palace

Liverpool’s hopes of securing Champions League football were dealt a blow as an error-strewn display against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park ended in stalemate.

Jurgen Klopp’s side – humbled by Real Madrid at Anfield in midweek – are six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham after failing to break down a Palace side who remain without a win in 2023.

Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah both hit the woodwork but Palace striker Jean-Philippe Mateta also struck the crossbar and Patrick Vieira’s side were well worth their point.

The Eagles now have one win in 11 games after labouring to a draw that leaves them six points above the relegation zone with a testing series of games in March to come.

When asked at the post-match media conference about his team’s modest display, Klopp replied: “I see it in your eyes and in the players’ eyes as well. It looks like we lost the game – we didn’t.

“We’ve spoiled ourselves with a lot of things, but we cannot suffer because of our own history. That would really be a joke.

“This will not be the season in the history books that people want to look at again and again and again.

“There will not be big movies about it, but we have to go through it anyway.”
