Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers concedes the title after draw with Crystal Palace

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.
