Brendan Rodgers’ side capitulated defensively in the second period to draw 3-3 with Palace.

The result means Manchester City need just four points from their remaining two matches to secure the Premier League crown.

Damien Delaney and a double from substitute Dwight Gayle earned the point for Palce after Joe Allen, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez had scored for the visitors.
