Match Highlights View More Below

City came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over Liverpool in a thrilling top-of-the-table clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Phillipe Coutinho gave the visitors the lead midway through the first-half, but goals from Vincent Kompany and Alvaro Negredo ensured the Blues overtook the Merseysiders and moved into second place in the table – though Manuel Pellegrini’s men are unlikely to face many better teams than Liverpool on this evidence.

The Blues made three changes from the team that started at Fulham with Pablo Zabaleta, Joleon Lescott and Jesus Navas all returning.

Interestingly, with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers promising to attempt to play in a similar style to Bayern Munich – the only team to succeed at the Etihad this season prior to this match – Pellegrini opted to play with just Negredo up front in a fluid 4-2-3-1 formation.
