LIVERPOOL manager Brendan Rodgers conceded his side's title hopes were over after an incredible comeback by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Eagles came back from 3-0 with less than 15 minutes to go to draw 3-3 with the title-chasers - and Rodgers was in shock at his side's failure to close out the game. He told Sky Sports after the game: "We got three goals against a team that are very good defensively. It's a killer blow to only get a point when you play so well. "You've just got to manage the game better. Our decision-making has cost us." "You have to be able to see out the game. We had enough defensive players on the field." And Rodgers admitted that, at 3-0 up early in the second half, his side were perhaps more focused on pegging back the goal difference gap between themselves and title rivals Man City. He added: "Maybe we just got carried away and thought we could get more than three goals. The important thing was to win the game. "We needed to win tonight. I think Manchester City will go on to win their two games and they will be champions." Liverpool are a point clear but only have one match left - at home to Newcastle - and a vastly inferior goal difference to City, who still have to play Aston Villa and West Ham at home.
