Have at the 20 minutes highlights before it is taken down. Stefan Savic brings down Daniel Agger and Steven Gerrard converts the PK in the 12th minute. Liverpool were much the better team for large parts of the match in the first half. In the second they played good hard defensive ball to deny City at the Etihad.
The match ended in controversy as Roberto Mancini and Gerrard exchanged words in the tunnel over a tackle made by Glen Johnson against Joleon Lescott that the Italian felt should have led to his ejection. An aggrieved Mancini pointing out Kompany was ejected for a lesser foul which led Gerrard to come surprisingly to the defense of Rooney. Nice bit of theatrics.
Without Vincent Kompany, serving the first of his four match ban for his tackle against Nani in the FA Cup third round encounter, City looked shaky in defense. This is their second loss in title competition in a row and there is undoubtedly a sense of frustration creeping in.
