Jose Enrique feels ‘very bad’ but won’t rule Liverpool out of title race
Injured Liverpool defender Jose Enrique admits he feels 'very sad' after the Reds suffer a 3-3 draw at Crystal Palace
Jose Enrique is refusing to admit defeat in the Premier League title race after Liverpool threw away a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Crystal Palace on Monday night.
Brendan Rodgers’s side appeared to be coasting to the top of the table after goals from Joe Allen, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Sarez put the visitors in control.
However, Crystal Palace capitalised on Liverpool’s overly open approach as Damien Delaney and a brace from Dwight Gayle pegged the Reds back in the final 11 minutes.
Manchester City can move two points clear of Liverpool with victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday, and injured Enrique admitted he was “very, very sad” following the draw.
I feel very bad today very sad today. I still can't believe it :(((( . Now we have to be strong and win our last game. Still not finish

Meanwhile, former Liverpool striker Michael Owen claimed that a point may be good enough, hinting that the Citizens could slip up against Aston Villa.
“Once the dust has settled, a bit like Man City v Sunderland, that point for Liverpool may not be the end of the world,” Owen wrote on his Twitter page.
“A helping hand was always required from Aston Villa or West Ham. That’s still the case. Win, lose or draw, Liverpool have been outstanding.”
