Man City beat Liverpool reserves

Liverpool reserves 1 – Manchester City reserves 2 (FA Premier Reserve League, November 3, 2008) The visitors went ahead on nine minutes when Marshall capitalised on a poor clearance from Damien Plessis and drilled in a low 18-yard shot. Liverpool rallied and Nabil El Zhar scored three minutes before the break when he scored with a fabulous individual effort, jinking away from several defenders before firing a shot into the bottom corner. Liverpool’s joy was short-lived however, as City regained the lead through Benjani almost immediately.
