London: Having seen Manchester City seize the initiative in the Premier League title race, Liverpool have no option but to win when they visit Crystal Palace on Monday.

Liverpool's title challenge was compromised by their 2-0 loss at home to Chelsea last weekend and they were knocked off the summit on Saturday when City won 3-2 at Everton.

City's success at Goodison Park means that they will be practically assured of claiming the title if they win their last two games, both of which are at home, against Aston Villa and West Ham United.

They currently lead Liverpool on goal difference alone, however, and although they have a nine-goal advantage in that regard, it is a slender enough margin of superiority to give Brendan Rodgers's side hope.
