Classic replay: City 2-1 Liverpool 2013

Manchester City’s thrilling 2-1 win over Liverpool on Boxing Day 2013 is now available to watch on CITY+.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side claimed a vital win over a team we would be locked in a season long battle for the title with and this win proved crucial as City would eventually pip the Reds to the Premier League crown by just two points.

The visitors arrived at the Etihad Stadium looking to return to the top of the table and took the lead when a teenage Raheem Sterling rounded Joe Hart, allowing Phillippe Coutinho to tap into the empty net.

Vincent Kompany headed home from a corner to level within six minutes before Alvaro Negredo netted the winner in first half stoppage time.

The Spaniard finished off a slick counter-attack, though his attempt to lob Simon Mingolet was helped into the net by the Liverpool goalkeeper, who made a weak attempt to keep the effort out.

In a game between two attack minded sides, the scoreline could have been far greater.

Jesus Navas saw a header clip the woodwork, whilst Joe Hart did well to deny both Coutinho and Jordan Henderson and future City player Sterling also blazed over from a promising position to spurn a golden opportunity for Brendan Rodgers’ men to equalise.

One of the most exciting games of our 2013/14 title-winning season, CITY+ subscribers can watch it in full in the video above.
