More frustration: Brendan Rodgers, manager of Liverpool walks to the dressing room after his side were beaten 3-1 by Crystal Palace.

Liverpool suffered more Selhurst Park misery as struggling Crystal Palace came from behind to clinch a shock 3-1 win over the lacklustre Reds on Sunday.

Brendan Rodgers' side saw their hopes of winning the Premier League title effectively ended when they conceded three late goals in a 3-3 draw at Palace last season and they fared even worse on their first return to south London since that painful experience.

Rickie Lambert had given Liverpool an early lead with his first goal since his pre-season move from Southampton.

But Neil Warnock's team hit back through Dwight Gayle's first half equaliser and Joe Ledley put Palace in front with 12 minutes remaining before Australia midfielder Mile Jedinak's brilliant free-kick sealed the points moments later.

Liverpool, disjointed going forward and careless in defence, could have few complaints about a dismal result that left them without a win in four league matches and with only one victory in their last seven games in all competitions.

The Reds are languishing in 12th place, only four points above the relegation zone and two points ahead of Palace, who climbed out of the bottom three with their first win since late September.

In the day's other game, Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen scored a fine 90th-minute winner to earn Tottenham Hotspur a morale-boosting 2-1 win away to 10-man Hull City.

Former Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore fired Hull ahead in the eighth minute, but the hosts lost Gaston Ramirez early in the second period after he was sent off for kicking out at Jan Vertonghen.

Harry Kane equalised in the 61st minute, sweeping home after Eriksen's free-kick hit the post, before the Dane drove in a late winner that left Mauricio Pochettino's side in 10th place.
