But City paid for their sluggish form, despite dominating possession, with Rondon taking advantage of poor defending to equalise before Fernandinho brought down Sean Longstaff in the box to allow Ritchie to send the home fans into ecstasy.
Jurgen Klopp's men can go seven points clear with a victory against Leicester City on Wednesday, and Pep recognises his men face an uphill task to retain their crown. We have a chance to do it, but we need to win our games.
"Then we have the situation with Maguire", he continued.
As reported on the official club website, Palace have scored in their last five games, with Ayew managing to get his name on the scoresheet twice. Given that means Man City needs Liverpool to effectively lose twice instead of three times going forward in order to reclaim first place, that is massive when you consider how dominant both have been on the whole of the season.
"We had a chance today to reduce the lead". Tomorrow is a game for our opponents.
A four-point lead has been established over reigning champions Manchester City in the battle for top-flight supremacy, with just one defeat suffered in 23 games.

"We can - not get close to them, because it's hard - but imitate them, being in the competition until the last stages". It is an incredible group of players, group of guys.
"Did we underestimate Newcastle?".
It came a little short of 12 months since a 1-0 home victory over Manchester United provided the catalyst for their escape last season.
Muric, 20, a Kosovo global, is the current second choice and has played in the run to the League Cup final. "It's just sometimes we don't play at the level we want to play and that can happen - it was not our good night, and that's something I understand completely".
