The hosts looked impressive from the outset, with Adam Lallana producing a superb finish on the turn to beat Joe Hart, only to have the strike ruled out for offside.

Thankfully for the Reds, they were ahead just a couple of minutes later. It was captain Jordan Henderson who produced a contender for goal of the season, finding the top corner with this outrageous strike:

Determined not to be outdone, City produced a piece of quality of their own soon after. David Silva and Sergio Aguero were both involved as an admittedly impressive team move ended with Edin Dzeko stabbing the ball past Simon Mignolet.

However, it was Liverpool who continued to impress – with Lallana once again at the heart of the home side’s good play, producing one wonderful pass and having another goal ruled out for offside:

Despite the impressive performances of many of his teammates, it was Coutinho who again stole the show, scoring a truly incredible winner:

City were deservedly beaten, and it could of even got worse for them when Wilfried Bony appeared to elbow Adam Lallana, only to receive a yellow card.

So, a brilliant result for Liverpool, and one that further extends our impressive run of league form!
