Liverpool can still win title, Rodgers insists

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted that he still believes his side can win the Premier League title this season, the Guardian has reported.

The Reds take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday evening before hosting Newcastle United on Sunday in their final outing of the season, and they must win both if they are to stand a chance of finishing first. They must also hope that either Aston Villa or West Ham United can take points away from Manchester City.


With Man City having the superior goal difference, Manuel Pellegrini’s side will finish as champions should the two clubs finish level on points unless Liverpool score an improbable number of goals in their games.


But Rodgers believes that the race for the Premier League crown is far from over. He said: "It is a tough ask for City," the Liverpool manager said. "To play three games at this stage of the season that really, really matter is a real tough ask. Aston Villa are an incredible team on the counter attack and better away from home, and West Ham on their day can be a really difficult opponent.


"Manchester City need to win all their games which means they will have won five games in a row and they have done that only once this season, so it will be a wee bit new for them. It is certainly not over by a long way. If we can win our two games then it could go a long way to deciding whether we finish top or not. But it is about concentrating on our game against Crystal Palace.


"City's result [at Everton] won't deflate us because we know we have to win against Palace no matter what. We know we have to win at Palace and win against Newcastle. That hasn't changed and that is our focus."
