GIF: Alvaro Negredo gives City the lead right before half time

It was the last kick of a brilliant first half of football, which saw Liverpool take the lead through Philippe Coutinho, but Vincent Kompany got the reply almost straight away as he beat Martin Skrtel to the ball on a set piece and headed home.

The lead goal came just before the break with the last kick of the half, as Manchester City broke from their own area, Negredo threw in a lovely dummy and then received the ball again before striking it with the outside of his boot, beating Simon Mignolet who will feel that he should have done much, much better.
