Liverpool took a step closer to the Premier League title yesterday as they beat City 3-2 in a controversial match full of incident. After David Silva scored, and then assisted in the equaliser, the momentum seemed to be with City to go on and win. A rare mistake by Vincent Kompany allowed Liverpool to score to make it 3-2 and seal the victory. A brilliant match to watch which made it even more disappointing to lose. The title may still be within City's grasp, especially with games in hand and Chelsea's visit to Anfield. City never do things the easy way, so it's a last day title win again!?

As a preview to this Sunday's Premier League 'decider' at Anfield, this is a report from 27th October 1906 of an amazing match which ended with City losing 5-4! Lets hope it's a better result this weekend! I'm sure all City fans will show their respect for the 96 Liverpool fans who lost their lives at Hillsborough on 15th April 1989, the 25th anniversary of the tragedy will be marked at football grounds throughout the country this weekend.

A 'Look at life' colour documentary from the 1959-1960 season focusing on 'Saturday Fever', a snapshot of a typical footballing Saturday. Around the 5 minute mark it features a Division 1 match played on 16th April 1960 which City (in yellow!) won 1-0 against Spurs, McAdams scoring the only goal.

An easy 3-0 win for City in the Manchester derby on Tuesday night kept up the push for the Premier League title. Dzeko scored two goals, the first after only 43 seconds, and a third was added by Yaya Toure late on in the match. The night was summed up for United with the fantastic picture of David Silva leaving Patrice Evra for dead! It seems to me the whole footballing world is rejoicing at United's demise, even if it is for a season or two. The stewards were deployed after the match to 'guard' the 'The Chosen One' banner in case irate United fans attempted to pull it down!

A very eventful match at Hull on Saturday saw City win 2-0, even though they were down to ten men for 80 minutes after Kompany's undeserved sending off. Goals from Silva and Dzeko sealed the win, which was made even better by Chelsea losing at Villa Park. Hull's George Boyd tried a spectacular dive in a desperate bid to win a penalty, but will probably get an FA ban instead, as it looked as though he spat in Hart's face in the row afterwards. Liverpool also won 3-0 at Old Trafford today!
