Liverpool 3 - 2 City - 13/04/2014


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!?

1906 - Liverpool 5-4 City


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.
