Rodgers: Premier Dream Over for Liverpool

MOST COMMENTED

Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers conceded the Premier League title to Manchester City on Monday after his team suffered a stunning three-goal reversal at Selhurst Park to draw 3-3 with Crystal Palace. Palace needed just nine minutes to score three goals as Liverpool blew what looked an unassailable lead with 11 minutes remaining. After the game, Luis Suarez, the Professional Footballers’ Association and Football Writers’ Association player of the year, could be seen crying as captain Steven Gerrard tried to console him while waving the cameras away.

Liverpool still sits at the top of the league standings with 81 points, one point ahead of second-place City and two points ahead of the third-place Chelsea, but City still has two games to play compared to Liverpool and Chelsea’s one.

"There is no doubt Manchester City will go on and win it," a dejected Rodgers said after the game. "We needed to win to keep the pressure on going into the last game and we did not do that.” He added: We were outstanding for 78 minutes. 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. We just did not manage the game at 3-0. We gave them a little sniff and they have some good players who can punish you. It is something we will improve on for next season."
