Video - Highlights from Liverpool vs Manchester City

With the pressure mounting on Liverpool's Premier League campaign the Reds had to produce something special at Anfield, and they did just that destroyed Manchester City 3-0. Midweek Liverpool's Champions League aspirations took a massive blow as captain Stven Gerrard was ruled out for the remainder of the season. However it was new signing Andy Carroll who (with a Gerrard like finish) found the back of the net to give Liverpool a lead. City's defence was in shambles, each wave of Liverpool attack looked to present another opportunity. Kuyt was found unmarked in the box and slotted home with a very calm finish. Just a minute later City's fate would be sealed as Carroll headed home to give Liverpool an astounding 3-0 lead before the half time interval. The second half continued much the same way as the first, but Liverpool could not add to their tally. It was a solid win for Liverpool who now sit five points out of European qualification (8 from Champions League). Manchester City's spot in the top four looks shaky as Tottenham breathe down their neck. City will be further setback by Tevez's hamstring injury which will see him miss the FA Cup semi final against United.
