  • FT: Manchester City 3 Liverpool 1. A double from Stevan Jovetic helped City get into a winning position, with Aguero making sure of the victory. Impressive from the champions. Liverpool looked shaky, especially at the back. Ominous for the rest.

  • Zabaleta not happy with Emre Can, who goes down very easily. Could have been given a second yellow card!

    90+2
  • Five minutes of added time...

    90
  • Skrtel is okay to carry on. Looked like he would be struggling for a moment there. If they have any chance Liverpool can't go down to nine!

    88
  • Break in play with Skrtel down down injured. Glen Johnson has had to leave the pitch with an injury so Liverpool are down to 10.

    86
  • Almost straight away, Lambert is in behind again, but he elects to pass across goal instead of shooting. Should have been more selfish.

    84
  • Hope for Liverpool yet. Great cross from Daniel Sturridge picks out Rickie Lambert, whose header is brilliantly saved, but Zabaleta cannot help but put into his own net.

    83
  • GOAL!!! Manchester City 3 Liverpool 1 (Zabaleta OG 83).

    83
  • Jovetic makes way to a standing ovation. Fernandinho comes on in his place.

    80
  • Rickie Lambert is next to head into the fray. He replaces Raheem Sterling.

    79
  • Emre Can the first player to go into the book. Was his first tackle. Harsh.

    77
  • Emre Can comes on for Liverpool in place of Joe Allen.

    75
  • City back on the attack, but Moreno does much better this time, and puts the ball out for a throw. City look like they want more.

    73
  • City look very comfortable now. Liverpool enjoying much of the ball, but City happy for them to have it, away from the dangerzone.

    71
  • Talk about impact!!! On the pitch a matter seconds, Aguero latches onto a lovely pass from Navas and beats Simon Mignolet at his near-post. Incredible from the Argentine.

    69
  • GOAL!!! Manchester City 3 (Aguero 68) Liverpool 0.

    69
  • City emphasise the strenght of their squad. Aguero comes on for Dzeko.

    68
  • David Silva makes way for Jesus Navas.

    66
  • 19 passes in that City goal. They are knocking it around with aplomb at the moment. Jovetic very lively up front. Causing all sorts of problems.

    64
  • Good response from Liverpool. Markovic gets in behind, cuts it back to Sturridge, but a crucial challenge from Kompany denies him.
