    4/13/2014 12:14:58 PM

  • Liverpool 0 Manchester City 0: We're off!
    4/13/2014 12:39:39 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 1 Manchester City 0 - Raheem Sterling
    Well, well, well... What a start! Suarez slides a perfectly weighted pass forward to Sterling who twists left then right, leaving Kompany and Hart looking stupid and firing into the net. Great finish.
    4/13/2014 12:43:59 PM
  • Raheem Sterling makes it 1-0 to Liverpool

  • There's Sterling's cool finish...
    4/13/2014 12:50:51 PM
  • Liverpool 1 Man City 0: City trying to get back into this game as Dzeko links up with Nasri who feeds Toure. However the Ivorian hoofs wastefully over the bar and then worryingly for City supporters clutches his knee.
    4/13/2014 12:53:20 PM
  • Liverpool 1 Man City 0: Sturridge with a great chance to make it 2-0 but he can only fire wide. Toure limping and City are looking decidedly ragged. 
    4/13/2014 12:54:59 PM
  • Liverpool 1 Man City 0: Yaya Toure's day is done. He is replaced by Javi Garcia. Big blow for City.
    4/13/2014 12:57:03 PM
  • Liverpool 1 Man City 0: Garcia has only been on about two minutes and already he's been booked for clattering Jordan Henderson.
    4/13/2014 12:59:58 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 2 Man City 0 - Martin Skrtel
    Just after Gerrard is allowed a free header from a corner that Joe Hart does well to tip over, Skrtel meets the next corner and heads home to put Liverpool two up. City are getting mauled.
    4/13/2014 1:06:42 PM

  • Raheem Sterling celebrates opening the scoring 


    4/13/2014 1:11:43 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Manchester City 0: Free kick to City just outside the area but it's poor from Silva who fires it into the feet of the Liverpool wall.
    4/13/2014 1:16:35 PM

  • Yaya Toure has gone off injured for Man City 


    4/13/2014 1:19:21 PM


  • 4/13/2014 1:20:59 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 0: City are getting back into this, Mignolet forced into making a smart save from Fernandinho. Half time approaching.
    4/13/2014 1:25:06 PM
  • HALF TIME: Liverpool 2 Man City 0 - Huge for the outcome of this year's title.
    4/13/2014 1:26:10 PM

    4/13/2014 1:30:32 PM

    4/13/2014 1:41:53 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 0: Raheem Sterling makes a great run but then hideously spoons a long range shot high and wide. Good work until the finish from Sterling 
    4/13/2014 1:45:55 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 0: Well, well... Suarez dives as Demichelis lunges in. There's no contact and that should be a yellow card which would see Suarez sent off after his earlier card. Clattenburg has bottled that.
    4/13/2014 1:50:03 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 0: City get the ball in the net but it won't count, the ball had gone out of play in the build up.
    4/13/2014 1:52:46 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 2 Man City 1 - David Silva
    Milner and Silva link up well, the former cutting it back to the latter to bundle it home from six yards out. Game on.
    4/13/2014 1:53:37 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 2 Man City 2 - Glen Johnson (o.g.)
    City are back in this! Silva is pulling all the strings and he pushes Liverpool back into their area before crossing the ball, it bounces of Johnson and goes in. This match has flipped on its head.
    4/13/2014 1:59:09 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 2: Sergio Aguero is coming on for Edin Dzeko. City going for the kill.
    4/13/2014 2:04:09 PM

    4/13/2014 2:09:01 PM
  • Liverpool 2 Man City 2: Liverpool have the ball in the net but it's not a goal, they were very offside in the build up.
    4/13/2014 2:10:04 PM


  • 4/13/2014 2:12:50 PM
  • GOAL! Liverpool 3 Man City 2 - Coutinho
    Horrible error from Kompany, he slices a clearance horribly and it dribbles about two feet off his boot straight to Coutinho who fires home quickly to give Liverpool the lead again. What a game!

    4/13/2014 2:14:26 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Man City 2: Just under ten minutes left at Anfield. Is there another goal left in this game?
    4/13/2014 2:20:51 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Man City 2: Can City equalise? They have a free kick out on the right but they can't capitalise, even when Mignolet makes a hash of the clearance. 
    4/13/2014 2:23:36 PM
  • Liverpool 3 Man City 2: Five minutes stoppage time coming up. Huge for the course of the title race.
    4/13/2014 2:27:31 PM
  • RED CARD! Jordan Henderson
    That's a two footed high tackle on Nasri from Henderson and he's off.
    4/13/2014 2:28:29 PM
  • FULL TIME
    Liverpool 3 Man City 2 - What a game. Liverpool in the title race driving seat.
    4/13/2014 2:31:53 PM

    4/13/2014 2:36:46 PM
