`Peerless` Man City moves up in Premier League following 2-1 win over Liverpool

Johannesburg, Dec 27: Manchester City has continued their peerless home form following their 2-1 win over Liverpool in a gripping Premier League encounter on Thursday at the Etihad.

Liverpool, meanwhile, fell from first place to fourth, but they trail new leaders Arsenal by only three points.

According to Sport24, although the visitors took the lead in the 24th minute with Phillippe Coutinho’s opener, City captain Vincent Kompany responded with his goal in the 31st minute, following which Alvaro Negredo’s ninth goal in nine home games maintained the club’s perfect home record and moved them into second place in the table.

However, Liverpool, and Suarez in particular, are playing with the confidence and verve of a team that even their cautious manager Brendan Rodgers now admits may have a chance of winning the title in 2014, the report added. (ANI)
