Star forward duo of Mohammad Salah and Sadio Mane scored as the runaway Liverpool FC beat Crystal Palace by 4-0 at empty Anfield on Wednesday to move within two points of creating Premier League history of securing their first league title.

Apart from Salah and Mane , Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho were also on score sheet to ensure Juergen Klopp’s side could be crowned champions on Thursday if second-placed Manchester City fail to win at Chelsea.

Should Pep Guardiola’s side win at Stamford Bridge, Liverpool could finish the job with a victory in their next game, against defending champions City, on July 2.

It was such a dominant performance from Klopp’s side, who had been held to a 0-0 draw by Everton on Sunday, that Palace did not have a single touch in Liverpool’s penalty area — the first time that has occurred in the Premier League since Opta began collating such stats in 2008.

Alexander-Arnold fired Liverpool ahead in the 23rd minute with a perfectly-executed curling free kick into the top corner.

Salah doubled the advantage, a minute before the interval, chesting down a cross-field pass from Fabinho before skipping goalwards and slotting home.

Brazilian Fabinho made it 3-0 with a thundering drive from 25 metres out before Mane added the fourth, finishing off a classic break from Liverpool’s front three.

Mane started the move, slipping the ball inside to Roberto Firmino who found Salah on the right, the Egyptian delivering a perfect pass to the on-running Mane who confidently drove home.

Liverpool have 86 points from 31 games with City 23 points behind ahead of their trip to Chelsea.
