Rodgers will tell his side to go out all guns blazing at Crystal Palace tonight in a bid to overhaul City's superior goal difference.
He said: "It is a tough ask for City.
"No matter how it works, at this stage of the season to play three games that really, really matter is a real, real tough ask at this stage of the season.
"Manchester City need to win all their games which means they will have won five games in a row and they have only done that once this season in the league.
"It will be a wee bit new for them as well. It is certainly not over by a long way."
City are nine better off in the goal difference stakes with two games to go.
