Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City on Thursday evening, which leaves the Reds fourth in the Premier League.

A first half strike from Philippe Coutinho was quickly turned around by City, scoring twice to take the lead before the break.

The thrilling encounter was not without controversy either—Raheem Sterling was wrongly adjudged offside in the first half, Luis Suarez should have had a penalty in the second, and Martin Skrtel was embroiled in a game-long battle with City defender, Vincent Kompany.

Liverpool will surely feel disappointed to have walked away from the game with nothing, and now turn their attentions to Sunday’s trip to Chelsea to complete their fixtures in 2013.

Here’s just a selection of tweets from some of This Is Anfield writers and other Liverpool fans in reaction to the Boxing Day defeat at the Etihad.
