Rodgers: LFC can win on goal difference

The FC crew predict whether or not Manchester City will drop points in their remaining games.

Brendan Rodgers insists Liverpool have the attacking threat to overturn Manchester City's goal difference advantage in the final week of the Premier League title race.

Brendan Rodgers isn't giving up on Liverpool's title hopes.

Usher: Liverpool need favours
Jolly: Rodgers vs. Pulis

Both teams have 80 points with two matches to play, and both have scored 96 league goals to date.

But City have conceded nine fewer than the Reds, and so top the table with a superior goal difference.

If Manuel Pellegrini's side win their final two league matches, at home to Aston Villa on Wednesday and West Ham on Sunday, few would give Liverpool a chance of overhauling that goal difference deficit.

Yet Rodgers, whose side visit Crystal Palace on Monday before finishing the season at home to Newcastle on Sunday, thinks it can be done.

He told British national newspapers: "If there is any team that can score goals and turn it around, it will be us.

"That will be our aim. We aim to score goals and be defensively strong."

Liverpool did beat Palace 9-0 in a First Division match in September 1989 -- and while Rodgers is not claiming his side will repeat that feat, he did point to the example of Chelsea winning by a big score when under pressure to claim the title in 2010.

He said: "I have seen it before. Chelsea beat Wigan 8-0 in the last game of the season.

"I am not paying any disrespect to Newcastle at all -- but what we are saying is if there is a team that has shown it can score goals, it is us.

"We are not a 1-0 team. That is what gives us the chance. It's the team that scores the goals that will win.

"Manchester City won the league on goals scored a couple of years ago. That's why, when I came in here, I spoke about a team that could score goals because ultimately that is what it could come down to.

"We scored 47 goals in the first year I was here and now we have 96. That is what gives us the chance. We could sit and get the team to defend and not want to score but ultimately it's the team that scores the goals that will win."

City secured their third successive league win as they triumphed 3-2 at Everton on Saturday, but Rodgers thinks they may yet slip up.

He added: "City's result won't deflate us because we know we have to win against Palace no matter what. We know we have to win at Palace and win against Newcastle. That hasn't changed and that is our focus.

"Manchester City need to win all their games. They will have won five games in a row and have only done that once this season, so it will be a wee bit new for them as well. It is not over by a long way.

"I just believe that if we can win our two games, then it will go a long way to deciding whether we finish at the top.

"But the first thing is concentrating on our game, which we have done all season, and that is Crystal Palace."
