City Fail To Close The Gap
Monday, 2nd Mar 2015 09:47
Manchester City stay five points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea after losing at Anfield on Sunday's lunchtime kick off. Chelsea though now have a game in hand over City after taking part in their victorious Capital One Cup Final. Philippe Coutinho scored the winning goal as Liverpool beat Manchester City 2-1.
This was an entertaining contest from the first whistle, with the hosts going close when Adam Lallana ran onto Coutinho's through-ball but could only shoot straight at Joe Hart.
City drew level on 26 minutes with a goal that owed a lot to Aguero’s trickery on the edge of the area as he found the unmarked Dzeko, who produced a composed finish beyond Simon Mignolet from 10 yards out.
From then on the game became even more open with Aguero heading over 20 seconds into the second half and Sterling bundling wide a Lallana cross, but the quality level dropped somewhat.
With only a quarter of an hour left to play, Liverpool were on the attack, and when Sterling found Coutinho on the left hand side of the area, the Brazilian curled the ball into the top corner.
