Liverpool were definitely second best on Monday night, as they were beaten 3-1 by Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City.
New signing Mario Balotelli could only watch on from the stands as his Liverpool side were taken apart by a Stevan Jovetic inspired Manchester City.
Liverpool’s defence were incredibly poor, with new signings Dejan Lovren and Alberto Moreno both committing costly mistakes.
There weren’t many positives for Brendan Rodgers to take, until Rickie Lambert came off the bench to cause Pablo Zabaleta to score an own goal.

If Mignolet is better than Reina then I’m better than Suarez #LFC #REINA — Football Stuff (@FootbalIStuff) August 25, 2014
“Would Suarez had made a difference?” Well, no as he’d have been in the stands serving his ban. Top insight. — Kenny (@KKeeton_) August 25, 2014
You’ll never convince me that Mignolet is a top four goalkeeper….#LFC — James Masters (@Masters_JamesD) August 25, 2014
4 – Stevan Jovetic has scored four goals in two competitive games against Liverpool (two for City, two for Fiorentina). Nemesis. — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) August 25, 2014
Good result for City, but Tottenham now need just a point to secure the title. — Danny Baker (@prodnose) August 25, 2014
Liverpool to win the League? Na, na, na, na na na na, na na na na. — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) August 25, 2014
Don’t buy the idea all is bleak for Liverpool. Plenty of positives tonight, particularly in the first half. Too good to fade away — Oliver Holt (@OllieHolt22) August 25, 2014
