VIDEO: Luis Suarez crying with Steven Gerrard after horror draw hits title bid

Share

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez just couldn’t believe what had happened. With his side comfortably three goals to the good against Crystal Palace with half an hour to go, all thoughts were on how many Brendan Rodgers’ side would get, with the title a mathematical possibility with huge scorelines in their last two games of the season.

But Liverpool contrived to throw it all away, and let Tony Pulis’ stubborn Eagles grab three quick-fire goals at the end of the match, with Liverpool’s capitulation all but ensuring the title is heading to the Etihad come the end of the season.

Suarez, who was today voted the FWA Player of the Year, saw his dream season come crashing down within a matter of minutes, and the Uruguayan hitman couldn’t contain his emotions at the final whistle, going down on his haunches and crying into his Liverpool shirt.

Ever the perfect captain, Steven Gerrard attempted to console his fallen teammate, picking him up and whispering words of encouragement. Kolo Toure, whose brother Yaya is now on course to shatter Liverpool’s title hopes with Man City, also came to talk to Suarez, but the striker seemed deaf to the world, with the full meaning of the draw hitting him hard.
