Man City battle back to defeat Reds

Manchester City moved above opponents Liverpool and up to second in the Premier League with an entertaining 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium.

All the goals were scored in the first half as Liverpool, who were top of the league at the start of the day, led from Philippe Coutinho's calm finish.

Vincent Kompany equalised with a near-post header from David Silva's corner.

City won after Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet allowed Alvaro Negredo's lofted shot through his grasp.
