Liverpool have played the best football, insists John Aldridge
Liverpool legend John Aldridge looks to the positives after the Reds surrender a three-goal lead at Crystal Palace
John Aldridge insists Liverpool have played the best football in the Premier League this season after the Reds suffered a title blow on Monday night.
Having eased into a 3-0 lead at Selhurst Park courtesy of goals from Joe Allen, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, Liverpool were caught trying to match Manchester City’s goal difference.
Crystal Palace defender Damien Delaney gave the home side a lifeline before substitute Dwight Gayle capitalised on some poor defending to score twice in the final 10 minutes.
The Citizens can move ahead of Liverpool with a point against Aston Villa on Wednesday before the final game of the season, and Aldridge preferred to look to the positives after the loss.
Great season anyway folks.weve seen the best footy over the season!7th to 2nd,champs league nights!and 6 more top top players in.Sleep well
