Full time: Crystal Palace 3-3 Liverpool


22:02: A title race which has been the closest for years has the potential to be over before the final day of the season. Manchester City face Aston Villa on Wednesday and can go top with one game to go. They would have to then lose to West Ham to give Liverpool a second chance. Liverpool back to the top and a point clear but the initiative is fully with City.

We'll have full coverage of Manchester United v Hull City on Tuesday before that pivotal evening on Wednesday but until then, goodbye.

21:58: You have to feel that, is that in Liverpool's title hopes. The reaction of Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard at full-time says plenty about the signficance of this result. Liverpool, 3-0 up, cruising, concede three goals in a nine-miniute spell as Crystal Palace stage an amazing comeback to destroy their title hopes.

21:55: Goodness me Liverpool almost grab it in the final minute. Victor Moses, the former Palace youngster, miss-kicks with the goal at his mercy as Speroni flapped. A minute to go....

21:50: Five added minutes at Selhurst Park.

21:50: What a turnaround from Palace. Three goals in eight second half minutes is threatening to dismantle their Premier League title bid. Murray chests the ball in behind Liverpool's back four and Gayle steals away and stabs the ball beyond Mignolet. Amazing stuff.

21:47: Bolasie is causing Liverpool all sorts of problems now and after shaking off Coutinho and cutting inside, he can't find Gayle in the box. Victor Moses on for Liverpool, who have three minutes plus stoppage time to survive this Palace resurgence.

21:44: Suddenly this has gone from a goal-scoring exercise to one of trying to hold on to what they have for Liverpool and Crystal Palace get a second. A Reds corner is cleared as far as Bolasie, who steams past Glen Johnson, picks the ball up on the other side cuts inside and finds Gayle, who side foots the ball home. The title race which keeps on giving has produced once again.

21:41: Bit of blow for Liverpool and Palace get a goal to match their endeavour tonight. Delaney takes aim from 30 yards and as Glen Johnson turns his back on the ball, it deflects off him and beyond Mignolet.

Goal: Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool (Damien Delaney)

21:35: Strange dynamic in this game for Liverpool, who are playing very open in search of more goals and it's allowed Palace plenty of the ball and even a chace or two at the other end, which is the last thing Brendan Rodgers' side could do with allowing. In fairness to the home side at 3-0 down and with no suggestion of a comeback, they could easily have folded but we've seen the sort of fight we'd expect from a team managed by Tony Pulis. Just 15 minutes to go.

21:29: Manchester City will finish on a goal difference of +61 is they win their final two games, and that requires Liverpool to really put the hammer down here. Glen Johnson's rasper from range forces Speroni into another fine save.

21:17: The three points are secure now for Liverpool and it's just a case of how close can they get to Manchester City's +59 goal difference. Luis Suarez exchanges passes with Raheem Sterling and tucks under Speroni to put the Reds three up with over half an hour remaining.

21:15: If at first you don't succeed and Daniel Sturridge does succeed with his second effort of the second half and Liverpool have an all important second. The England international is allowed onto his left-foot and his goal-bound effort is deflected on route to rolling past Speroni.

Goal: Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool (Daniel Sturridge)

The visitors have begun this second half striving for a second goal and they come within inches of putting daylight between themselves and Palace. Sturridge gets the ball onto his right foot and curls goalwards only for Speroni to turn the ball onto the post.

21:11: Liverpool were a tad unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty in the first half and within four minutes of the second period they're sensing more injustice. Luis Suarez goes for a one-two with Sturridge but is shoved to the floor upon attempting to latch onto the backheeled pass by Scott Dann. Replays suggest the Palace defend closeline the Liverpool forward.

21:04: Second half under way. No changes at the break.

20:51: Joe Allen's header has Liverpool ahead at the break at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace and at this stage heading back to the top of the Premier League. The Eagles have been otherwise uninspiring though the Liverpool nerves might give them a sniff in the second half.

Half time: Crystal Palace 0-1 Liverpool

20:47: Two added minutes to be played at Selhurst Park.

20:45: Entering the last five minutes of the first half at Selhurst Park and so far Liverpool have done all that can be expected of them. They lead and have for the most part kept Crystal Palace to shots from range. Speroni saves from a tight angle from Suarez, who has been quiet for the most-part in the first half.

20:38: Simon Mignolet to the rescue again for Liverpool and the Belgian turns the ball over from Jedinak's thunderous effort from 25 yards. Now the stopper punches from an inswinging corner as the home side show some resolve. Their unrelenting support in this first half deserves it; they've been terrific in this first half.

20:35: At last, some resistance from Palace. Jason Puncheon picks the ball up and lashes the ball goalwards and almost surprised at the venom in the effort, Mingolet is forced to get down and palm the ball away for a corner.

20:34: An opening half an hour which has gone exactly to plan for Liverpool. They have an opening goal while Palace are offering nothing in the final third. The Reds are set up camp in the hosts' half and look like they have goals in them tonight.

20:26: Total disbelief has met the concession of opening Liverpool goal. Joe Ledley was assigned to mark Allen, who can at best we referred to as a decoy runner, but the Welshman pulled away and produced a deft header to break the deadlock. That was the first set-piece goal Palace have conceded under Pulis and it was a total gift for the Reds.

20:22: Tony Pulis' reputation as a manager who demands organisation takes a knock as Liverpool take a lead through Joe Allen. Gerrard's corner from the left is towards the back post and Allen, probably the smallest player on the pitch, heads unmarked across Speroni for his first goal for the club.

Goal: Crystal Palace 0-1 Liverpool (Joe Allen)

20:17: Camped in the Palace half are Liverpool and this evening already has the feelings of last weekend's game against Chelsea where the Blues player primarily on the break. Improved patience required here. Glen Johnson does ghost in behind Bolasie though but heads over.

20:12: Should Liverpool have a penalty there? Glen Johnson latches onto a pass in the Palace box and Yannick Bolasie takes a big swing and connects with the England full-back who goes to ground in stages. Mark Clattenburg only awards a corner, which directly from Sakho heads wide unmarked.

20:05: Liverpool have wasted little time getting into their stride and they should have tested Julain Speroni. Suarez is fouled on the half-way line but referee Mark Clattenburg waves play on and Sterling feeds Sturridge, who opts to come onto his right foot rather than shoot first time and Palace are able to clear.

20:02: Under way at Selhurst Park. Stellar atmosphere being created by both sets of supporters.

19:58: Teams in the tunnel at Selhurst Park. Can Liverpool go back to the top or will Crystal Palace be the latest side to produce a shock in this title race? Kick-off fast approaching.

19:50: Tony Pulis on Sky Sports: "For us to finish our final home game of the season knowing that we are still in the Premier League is fantastic for everyone but we are desperate to get a result and finish what has been a great season with a win.

"Sturridge has come back in and we expected that so it's just whether our lads can handle them. It's going to be tough but if we can get the ball out wide we will get forward and we know we can create chances."

19:45: Slight worry for Liverpool fans pre-match, Luis Suarez has been in deep conversation with the club physio and has taken a tablet before kick-off. We'll keep an eye out for that one.

The demand for tickets from Reds fans has been so great that some supporters have attempting to purchase tickets in the Palace end. The Eagles warning season-ticket holders over releasing their seat to the opposition, while reports are also emerging tonight claiming Liverpool fans have been attempting to get into the press and hispitality areas claming to be a guest of Tony Pulis. What some fans will do eh?

19:40: It might be a somewhat trivial issue given what is at stake tonight, but are we watching two teams managed by the two managers of the season? Tony Pulis has taken Crystal Palace from relegation certainties to top half contenders while after finishing outside the European place last term, Brendan Rodgers will lead Liverpool out on the final day with a chance of claiming the league title. Who is your pick?

19:30: The only change made by Liverpool today sees Daniel Sturridge replace Philippe Coutinho, who Brendan Rodgers admits is injured for tonight's game. Notwithstanding the blow for the Brazilian, but good news for Roy Hodgson to see Sturridge feature before the end of the season, like so any of his expected call-ups for the World Cup won't.

19:22: In a season which has been all about history, Liverpool are once again looking to the past in order to recharge their title hopes. While chasing the title in 1989, Liverpool put nine past a Crystal Palace side with eight different goalscorers. With nine goals seperating themselves and leaders Manchester City, a similar result tonight would really put Brendan Rodgers' side back in the title pursuit.

19:16: Brendan Rodgers has selected a typically attacking team as Liverpool go in search of a win which will take them back to the top. Newly crowned Football Writers' Player of the Year Luis Suarez starts in attack alongside the returning Daniel Sturridge, who returns for the first time since April's win over Manchester City.

Opposite number Tony Pulis has treated this game with the respect it deserves. Jason Puncheon starts with Yannick Bolasie either side of former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh. Julian Speroni, one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League this season, is charged with keeping the Premier League's top scorers at bay.

19:05: Teams:

Crystal Palace v Liverpool

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Dann, Delaney, Ward, Dikgacoi, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Skrtel, Sakho, Gerrard, Allen, Lucas, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez

19:00: Having seen Manchester City go top of the Premier League on Saturday, it's the turn of Liverpool to take the title race to the final day of the campaign. Victory at already safe Crystal Palace will put the Reds top again and pile the pressure on Manuel Pellegrini's men ahead of the visit of Aston Villa on Wednesday. Palace under Tony Pulis are still chasing a top half finish and having already beaten Chelsea at Selhurst Park this term will be confident of adding another scalp to an impressive campaign.
