Observations from Liverpool's defeat against Palace

Just as it looked like we were pulling clear in the race for top four, Crystal Palace rear their ugly heads again. It was so inevitable, wasn't it? Well, maybe not if you've got some optimism, something I'm certainly lacking after that performance. Can Sadio Mane have my leg? I didn't observe him, but here's what was on offer at Anfield...
