Joe Allen - Man of the match

Defensive errors cost Reds dearly.

Man of the match: Joe Allen

Moment of the match: Luis Suarez superb free kick.

Villain of the match: Martin Skrtel. Blind backpass cost two points.

In the preview for the game I said that Liverpool had problems in attack and defence but I didn't expect that prophecy to be proved so spectacularly accurate.

With fourteen minutes gone Borini side footed wide of the post with an admittedly difficult chance but you just know that these efforts have to be buried if you are going to match the Premiership pace setters.

 

 

Joe Allen - Man of the match

Defensive errors cost Reds dearly.

Man of the match: Joe Allen

Moment of the match: Luis Suarez superb free kick.

Villain of the match: Martin Skrtel. Blind backpass cost two points.

In the preview for the game I said that Liverpool had problems in attack and defence but I didn't expect that prophecy to be proved so spectacularly accurate.

With fourteen minutes gone Borini side footed wide of the post with an admittedly difficult chance but you just know that these efforts have to be buried if you are going to match the Premiership pace setters.

That's two good chances Borini has spurned in two games and a proven reliable goalscorer has to be on the Reds shopping list before the transfer window closes.

Martin Skrtel provided the opener with a fantastic run and unstoppable bullet header from a Steven Gerrard corner, City scored the equaliser when Kelly failed to control the ball in the area and Suarez scored a peach of a free kick to put the reds back in front.

On 81 minutes Skrtel managed to pass back to the keeper only to look up and see Tevez racing to intercept, round the keeper and poke home for an undeserved share of the points.

Whatever Liverpool's deficiencies in technique they more than made up for in commitment and desire and City were outplayed for long stretches of the game.

Raheem Sterling was again one of Liverpool's best performers and whilst Adam and Downing and for that matter Carroll sat forlornly on the bench, on the pitch the youngsters repaid the gaffers faith with performances beyond their years.

Joe Allen was quietly efficient and Shelvey full of running and effort closing down the City midfield at every opportunity.

For an insight into why Brendan Rodgers is getting so much out of the tank that didn't appear to be there under previous managers – in particular Hodgson, Fox sports have released a trailer of their upcoming Liverpool documentary and it shows the manager giving Sterling a rocket for stepping out of line.

This performance was a mile away from the opening day effort at West Bromwich and with this level of effort and commitment Liverpool will surely achieve a top four finish this season.
