Liverpool boss Rodgers concedes title to Man City

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes that his side’s hopes of winning the title are now over after they sensationally let slip a three-goal lead to draw with Crystal Palace, BBC Sport has reported.

An unmarked header from Joe Allen put the Reds in front on 19 minutes, and that was how it stayed until early in the second half when they scored two goals in as many minutes through Daniel Sturrdge’s deflected shot and Luis Suarez’ close range effort.

With a three-goal cushion, Liverpool appeared to be cruising to victory until Damien Delaney’s speculative shot was deflected past Simon Mognolet, giving the home side confidence and belief. It was Dwight Gayle who pulled it back to 3-3, first guiding home Yannick Bolasie’s cross, before firing in after being put through by Glenn Murray.

After the game, with some of his players disconsolate on the pitch, Rodgers conceded the title to Man City, who now need four points from home games against Aston Villa and West Ham United. He said: "There is no doubt Manchester City will go on and win it. We needed to win to keep the pressure on going into the last game and we did not do that.

"We were outstanding for 78 minutes," added Rodgers. "We got three goals and looked like we could get a few more, but to concede the three goals at the end was hugely disappointing. At half-time, we said that the most important thing was to win the game. It was not about Roy of the Rovers football to make up the goal difference, it was just about winning.’
