Reds boss Brendan Rodgers suggested Chelsea parked 'two buses' at Anfield as they hit Liverpool twice on the counter-attack to claim a 2-0 win - a which result which saw the Merseyside club lose control of the title race.

Manchester City now have the destiny of the title in their hands, if they win all their remaining games they will be champions - but whilst Jose Mourinho thinks differently, Schurrle insists Chelsea are still in the hunt.

"Of course it will be hard for us from here. We have to do everything in our power to win the two games we've got left and hope Liverpool and City both give us something. But we're still in it," Schurrle said.

"We know it will be tough but everybody thinks we can win it, win the League and the Champions League. We have to believe - and we do."

Schurrle also believes that Chelsea should not apologise for their performance at Liverpool.

"The first thing we needed to do was make sure we didn't concede and we did that very well," he said.

"Winning is what matters. It's the most important thing.

"You can have perfect football, lots of one-touch stuff, and lose. But that's not what you want - you want to win.

"There's no point in playing well and losing. If our plan is to win playing this way, and we win, then it is perfect.

"If people look at us and say, 'Chelsea can't play' even when we win, it's just because they're jealous.

"We knew it would be a very passionate game, we stood up to that, did what we had to do defensively and scored twice.

"We felt it was brilliant, a perfect game.

"We did exactly what we needed to do and what we were told to do."

Chelsea take on Atletico Madrid in the second-leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday, and the German expects to change their style of play again - but he is confident they can do that.

"We can play both types of game," he said.

"We showed against Arsenal that, when we need to, we can force the game and score goals.

"We know we can do that and we hope to give Atletico those sort of problems if they come and just try to defend.

"The group knows how important it is for us to beat them and that we had to win against Liverpool too.

"But to do it just as we wanted was the perfect way to give us confidence. We need to have a balance in our play, especially because we are at home.

"If it's 0-0, it's extra-time and penalties, but if it's 1-1 or any other draw we're out - so we need to win."

......if you put a question mark (?) at the end of the title...it makes a lot more sense!
