The stats suggest Liverpool had the lions share of the play, but as we all know, stats are just that. Did City deserve to win?

Last weeks stats showed that City played well and we were pathetic. This week we look to be lucky to get a draw but this was a game of two halfs. For me City just about deserved to nick this game.

It's a good point for City, like the Copenhagen game I would have taken a draw. But it is hard not to feel disappointed after letting another lead slip. Great to see Nedum performing so well, and I thought that was more of Bellamy goal than an own goal

In the first half there was plenty of effort but we looked a bit overawed by the Anfield occasion. Then there was a 20-minute spell at the start of the second half when we looked far the better side. The timing of the goal gave us a chance of dominating and for a while we were able to do it. Benitez brought on Babel at the right time for Liverpool and we started to look stretched down both flanks, then started to tire. There were some great performances for me. Kompany and De Jong proved we can play with two "defensive" midfielders in the same side -- and showed great commitment for the full 90. Zabaleta made his Argentine compatriot Mascherano look second best. Given was great again. No complaints about the work rate of Richards and Bridge, both ran their socks off and did us proud. The stats, like Tudor and Thaibluefan say, give a false impression. We could well have won this one... Bellamy and Ireland ran and closed down and showed pace and ... could not quite get the luck to go with the effort. If there ever was a game that needed some brilliance from Robinho, this was it. The Brazilian did loads of tracking back but just couldn't find the spark we needed. But hey, if we played like this every week we would be in the Top 6 no problem.

Im happy the point but sad we couldnt hang on. The lads were amazing second half and our midfield trio were power houses. Praise to nedum whos taken his chance and im happy for him because he is a model perfessional. I couldnt fault any of the players today. Though this result doesnt paper over the cracks in my eyes, we need to get something from west ham next week.

I think if Stevie's effort in the 29th min had been successful it would have been a true result 2 -1
