    1. More like Atkinson saved Liverpool with a sending off that wasn’t and his pandering to Suarez’s jumping on the floor rolling round every couple of minutes, if it’s not a free kick why did he let him do this a least seven times crying for free kicks? Oh well good game and City still unbeaten. Have City played anybody yet?

  1. Manchester City were there for the taking and Liverpool blew it. Four draws in a row at home for Liverpool which is not going to be good enough for a top 4 spot. Stewart Downing once again showed why he should never start for Liverpool as he had two great chances and missed badly on both occassions. He has been poor all season long. great game to watch though and City will be pleased with the point especially sice United also drew yesterday.

    Don’t count out Spurs for a title challenge. If they win their game in hand they will be 2nd.

  2. This is a fantastic game for Liverpool. Many people may disagree with this because of the 1-1 result, but the score of the game means nothing to the authenticity of the style of play that Liverpool have been trying to stamp on this season. Liverpool were adventurous going forward from the back, creative in the midfield, and energetic up top with steady pressure. Today the value in the match was the reassurance that Liverpool are making extreme progress in becoming a team and playing their own style against not only the teams around them in the table, but against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City. Liverpool should come away from the game against Manchester City not telling themselves that they “should have won”, but that they “could have won” if not for the best goal keeping performance of the last few weeks from Joe Heart.

  3. Liverpool should have won that game, but just didn’t get the second goal, though technically they didn’t actually score their first goal either. Other than a few defensive lapses, Liverpool had a great game. At one point in the second half, it looked more like a Liverpool scrimmage than an EPL game as the Man City players seemed to be glued to the pitch. Hart made some fantastic saves and he alone is the reason for the point.
