Liverpool saw their Premier League title challenge take a huge hit as they let slip a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Reds had a clear advantage on their rivals after an 11-game winning streak but their 2-0 defeat by Chelsea, followed by this result, has seen Manchester City move into pole position.
Manuel Pellegrini's side now have the opportunity to go two points clear if they beat lowly Aston Villa at home on Wednesday in their game in hand, with only one game for each side still to come after that.
The Blues would be ruled out of contention if City are victorious against Villa so can anyone now stand in the way of Pellegrini and his men?
What do you think? Have Liverpool effectively ended the title race by failing to overcome the Eagles? Are Manchester City nailed on to be champions or is there a twist still to come? Can Chelsea break through to take the crown?
