A lot of Crystal Palace fans are raving over a dramatic thriller against Liverpool which was played six years ago at Selhurst Park.
The club posted highlights of the game, in which recently promoted Palace were battling for safety and had to face the Reds who were fighting for the league title against Manchester City, via BBC Sport. No one could have expected the 90 minutes that the footballing world was about to see, as Liverpool eventually held a 3-0 lead and the away end were singing for them to score more.
However the final ten minutes saw a historic comeback as a deflected strike from Damien Delaney gave the club the faintest of hope, before a brace from Dwight Gayle including an 88th minute equaliser meant the South London side salvaged a draw and damaged Liverpool’s chances of winning the title.
The great comeback made Selhurst Park erupt and gave the Palace faithful a very memerable night under the lights in the division. The game is now dubbed ‘Crystanbul’ as the comeback was similar to Liverpool’s in the Champions League final in Istanbul.
Here is what fans had to say following the tweet:
