David Silva's close-range finish was not enough to inspire a comeback against Liverpool at Anfield in 2014.

In what looked to be a title-defining clash, the Spaniard steered home after good work from Fernandinho and James Milner on the right flank.

The Englishman was released by Fernandinho’s through ball and did well to pick out Silva with a low cross, who converted from eight yards.

City were trailing 2-0 when ‘El Mago’ struck and despite equalising through Glen Johnson's own goal, Philippe Coutinho's effort handed the home side a 3-2 victory and sent them seven points clear of the Blues at the top of the table, with just four games remaining.

Though unable to at Anfield, Manuel Pellegrini’s men would of course fightback to lift the Premier League trophy that year.
