Decade’s best: Eagles ruin Gerrard's farewell - 2015

21 December 2019

Palace didn’t read the pre-match script as the 2014/15 season wound to a close and Steven Gerrard prepared to wave farewell to the stadium he became an icon in.

Gerrard’s last ever game on the Anfield turf fell against the Eagles, who were fast becoming a thorn in Liverpool’s side after collecting four points from their last two league fixtures with the Reds.

When Jason Puncheon bagged at the end of a first-half expected to be a fairy tale farewell for the Liverpool captain, another upset was on the cards and Palace were just 45 minutes from taking three more points from the Merseysiders.

The Eagles dominated throughout the afternoon and earned their eventual lead through Wilfried Zaha, who netted 23 seconds after hitting the pitch as a substitute on the end of a Yannick Bolasie ball.

Zaha was involved again as the game reached its conclusion, the winger being felled in the box by Lucas. Glenn Murray stepped up to strike the resulting spot-kick, missed, and then turned home his own rebound.

It may have been overlooked by everyone else, but it was a huge win in the club's history. Is *this* Liverpool triumph the greatest moment the club has enjoyed over the last decade? Or does something else edge it out? Vote below!
