Then they blew a 3-0 lead against Crystal Palace.
From three goals up in the 79th minute, Liverpool slumped to a 3-3 draw and now their title hopes are just about done. Even Brendan Rodgers knows it.
"We needed to win tonight," Rodgers said after the match. "I think Man City will go on and win the two games and be champions."
It was pretty obvious after the final whistle that the Liverpool players were on the same page. Especially Luis Suarez, who cried.
He cried a lot.
Steven Gerrard may not have cried, but he knew his first league title had slipped away too.
Daniel Sturridge couldn't cry because he still couldn't believe what happened.
