This season’s English Premier League title challenge is coming down to the wire.

Liverpool can jump back to the top of the table on Monday night when they face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park (3pm, NBC Sports Network), but Manchester City will remain just three points behind with a game in hand. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has backed his team to finish the season strong and believes that the Reds can still win the title.

Tony Pulis has guided Crystal Palace to tenth place and safety from relegation, and his side will do everything they can to win their final home game of the season.

In Italy, Juventus will be able to celebrate their third consecutive Serie A title at home when they take on Atalanta (BeIN Sports USA). Juve clinched the title with AS Roma’s defeat to Catania on Sunday and with nothing else to play for, it’s likely to be a festive atmosphere at Juventus Stadium.

If you will be watching today’s match, please feel free to leave your thoughts, some play-by-play and analysis in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. talk about a storybook season turning into a Greek tragedy… 25 years from Hillsborough….

    team playing attractive football with no cheating (or very minimal) from Suarez and Stevie G blows the Chelsea match and not they blow a 3-0 lead…

    Almost feel sorry for them… I do actually a bit for Stevie G

    • Stevie is a good one. It’s a shame to see him be so good for so long, stay out of trouble, and not win anything memorable.

      • He got into a little trouble too… I mean, he got away with it by saying he was scared the DJ was going to hit him so he had to strike first, but he did get into trouble.

  2. Belasie reminds me a lot of Gervinho during his Arsenal days. Gets into really dangerous spots and has pace but seems to lose his composure most of the time.

  3. Liverpool has pushed so hard they are out of gas, wide open game, will be interesting to see how it ends.

  4. I’m amazed that Allen has only scored once this season. I had thought he played a much bigger role for them.

    Also, Suarez is a genius. If he didn’t dive so much and play dirty I think he would be in the same discussions as Ronaldo and Messi every year.

    • That’s a good call on Suarez – his style of play limits his popularity (and subsequent endorsement opportunities as well).
      Even CR7, with all his arrogance on display, plays honest. His skills are there for everyone to marvel at.
      But Suarez embraces being the villain, and his play on the pitch makes you want to root against him, to the point where you cannot even appreciate his brilliance.
