sEri lagI cicIr 7 poinT

1 min : Man City get the game underway attacking the Kop end
2 mins : Big shout out to Pete McDowell who has taken over from the late Phil Easton as pitchside announcer until the end of the season
4 mins : A fine run and cross from Arbeloa ends with Riera heading wide of target
9 mins : Carra clips a long ball towards Yossi but his touch off is fired high, wide and not so handsome by El Nino
10 mins : Benayoun does well to feed Kuyt on the right but his low ball in is brilliantly hacked clear by Dunne at the near post. Promising stuff from the Reds
14 mins : Dossena outwits ex-red Bellamy to earn the home side a goal kick. Needless to say Craig has had sometihng to say about it
15 mins : A quarter of an hour in and the pattern looks set with LFC probing and City looking to hit us on the break
17 mins : A flowing move involving Yossi and Lucas finishes with Dossena flashing a low ball straight across the middle of the City area. Someone should have been on the end of that
18 mins : Free-kick to the Reds on the edge of the area
19 mins : Benayoun curls an effort straight into the wall with the rebound coming to nothing
22 mins : The pressure is mounting. Arbeloa and Riera both sent over dangerous crosses that eventually led to a corner. From the right-wing delivery City somehow managed to survive with Riera coming close to stabbing home on the line
27 mins : Nice to see a couple of Reds legends taking in the game at Anfield today in the shape of King Kenny and Phil Thompson. Thommo is sporting an impressive tan!
30 mins : City should be ahead. The lull in the game comes to an explosive end as Ireland hits a long ball to Robinho before making up the ground to strike a tame effort at Reina. He then hits the rebound into the side netting. A great chance for the visitors
32 mins : First Booking: Richard Dunne:
35 mins : Dossena forces Given into action with a long range drive
37 mins : A lightning break sees Torres race beyond Bridge and cut the ball back for Riera, but the winger can't provide the finish as he fires narrowly wide
39 mins : The game has been halted while Richards receives treatment for a head injury
40 mins : The England man is back on and we are underway again
42 mins : Torres turns brilliantly and plays in Yossi but the Israel international smashes the ball way over the top of Given's goal
43 mins : City earn a corner that Reina just about manages to punch clear
45 mins : Two minutes of stoppage time

15:50 GMT : Half Time Reached

16:11 GMT : Second Half Begins

48 mins : GOAL! Craig Bellamy:
51 mins : The Reds are up against it now. The Welshman hit a well struck shot that touched off Arbeloa and flew into the corner of Reina's net
54 mins : As it stands Man United will remain eight points clear at the top having played the same number of matches as us
56 mins : There is a serious sense of frustration inside Anfield. The Kop is doing its best to try and boost the players
58 mins : Torres heads a corner high into the Kop
60 mins : Ireland curls a shot over the top after a clever City counter attack
63 mins : Substitution: Nabil El Zhar for Albert Riera:
65 mins : Substitute El Zhar almost makes an immediate impact but Torres can't get there ahead of Dunne to turn his cross home
66 mins : Almost curtains for LFC. A cross shot hits Ireland and trickles into the net... the sight of the referee's assistant's flag brings with it a huge sigh of relief from the home support
69 mins : Robinho is tripped right on the edge of the Liverpool penalty area. Danger here...
70 mins : The Brazilian fires a shot just wide of the post and somehow manages to convince the ref it's a corner
71 mins : It's all City at the moment
74 mins : First Booking: Vincent Kompany:
76 mins : First Booking: Nabil El Zhar:
76 mins : Substitution: Fabio Aurelio for Andrea Dossena:
78 mins : GOAL! Dirk Kuyt:
79 mins : Kuyt levels with 12 minutes remaining after Torres miscued Benayoun's cross into his path. Game on.
81 mins : The game has completely changed and the Reds now have their tails up
83 mins : Substitution: Ryan Babel for Javier Mascherano:
85 mins : Shay Given produces a miracle save to keep out Benayoun. LFC are pushing
87 mins : Kuyt fires one inches wide after taking Arbeloa's pass on the turn
88 mins : Substitution: Felipe Caicedo for Robinho :
90 mins : City have a free-kick as we enter the final moments
90 mins : Reina claims and the Reds launch one of their last attacks. Seven points behind the leaders unless we can snatch another last-gasp win against Mark Hughes' men
90 mins : Three minutes of stoppage time
16:56 GMT : Match Over
