Reigning champion Manchester City twice came from behind in a 2-2 draw away to Liverpool that denied Brendan Rodgers his first Premier League win as Reds manager.
Martin Skrtel went from hero to villain in the course of an exciting match at Anfield on Sunday, heading Liverpool in front before his loose back-pass set up the goal for Carlos Tevez that saw City make it 2-2, just 10 minutes from time.
Seizing on the pass
Tevez seized on a stray back-pass from defender Skrtel and then calmly rounded Pepe Reina before slotting home for the Argentine striker’s 100th goal in English football.
Nevertheless, Rodgers told Sky Sports: “My glass is very nearly full.
“I thought it was a brilliant performance.
“We were asked a lot of questions and I thought the players were incredible. Some times the best team doesn’t win.”
“Let's remember we were playing a good side.”
Liverpool 2 (Skrtel 34, Suarez 66) drew with Manchester City 2 (Y. Toure 63, Tevez 80). — Agencies
