The Twitter trolls were out — and plenty of supporters, too — after Liverpool choked away a 3-0 lead and perhaps its chance at an elusive 19th Premier League title in a 3-3 draw at Crystal Palace today.
You expect the trolls. You just don’t expect them to be Samir Nasri and the official Tottenham Hotspur account.
So there was City glee…

Spurs piling on…
And then hilariously-pretending we’d buy this explanation:
We apologise to anyone offended by a recent tweet, which was immediately deleted. This post was not tweeted by anyone affiliated to THFC.

After that result I imagine Liverpool fans will be relieved that they already won the league two weeks ago.

Support from alums…
A helping hand was always required from Aston Villa or West Ham. That’s still the case. Win, lose or draw, Liverpool have been outstanding. — michael owen (@themichaelowen) May 5, 2014
They have a drink special in Liverpool tonight. You get three pints but then you give them all away.

Amazement from the neutrals…
This match is one I will never forget. Fantastic game at Selhurst Park, feel privileged to have witnessed it with my own two eyes. #BPLonNBC

Tears from the stars…
Anybody else finding the match hashtag of #CRYLIV highly ironic right now?
