Everton legend Joe Royle says Liverpool's defence are to blame for blowing the title.

The Reds blew a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 at Crystal Palace and hand the advantage to Manchester City.

“That Crystal Palace draw may come back to haunt Rodgers,” he told talkSPORT. “You could say realistically the Chelsea defeat was the start [of the slide]. That was the game that cast doubts over their pedigree.

“I think he’s known all along he’s going to need one, if not two, centre halves.”
