The game was one of Man City‘s two games in hand over the Reds, but goals from Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta subjected the blow to Roberto Mancini’s men in a fiery contest in which both managers were sent to the stands.
Liverpool are still 2 points behind City in the league table, having played a game less. Tottenham still hold onto fourth spot, four points ahead of the Reds, also with a game in hand.
With 7 games of the season to go for Rafa Benitez’s men, the pressure is really on, although the Reds end the season with a favourable fixture run-in.
The Reds next face Sunderland at home in league, this Sunday at 4pm.
