Liverpool 1 – 1 City

City were playing on Sunday so I had most of the weekend to get things done before stopping to watch it. I had come down with a cold which whilst not severe, was one that made my sinuses raw and painful so I felt a bit sorry for myself sniffling and snuffling as I watched the match.

As might have been expected, it was a very open game and the action was end to end at times, though City dominated for long periods. It took until the break was looming for a goal and happily it was for us, thanks to Komapny after a corner. Unfortunately, just a couple of minutes later, a cruel deflection off Lescott gave Liverpool the equaliser 🙁

Things got a bit feisty as the game progressed though I didn’t think Balotelli (who had come on as a sub for Nasri) deserved his second yellow resulting his sending off as I didn’t feel he’d deliberately gone in with an elbow. Still, we were left with 10 men and my heart was in my mouth as the game got nearer and nearer to its end – I was kicking every ball and shouting at the TV, but somehow we managed not to concede to keep the scores level. I was very relieved and in the end, pleased to take a point. Phew! I think I’d have given Hart MotM for us as he kept out some likely looking shots.
