Manchester City 2-1 Liverpool: Negredo & Pellegrini profit from Mignolet howler

Alvaro Negredo’s seventh goal in nine home matches saw Manchester City defeat Liverpool to move into second in the Premier League.

Negredo capped a devastating counterattack in first-half injury time with a shot which Simon Mignolet could only palm into his own net after Vincent Kompany had cancelled out Coutinho’s opener.

Jordan Henderson’s backheel was saved by Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling missed an open goal as Liverpool pressed for an equaliser after the break, but City held on for a big win.
