Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that the Reds' 3-2 victory over Manchester City at Anfield shows his side's resilience in the Premier League title race.

Two goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel put Liverpool 2-0 up at half time, but the momentum switched to the Citizens in the second half after a strike from David Silva and a Glen Johnson own goal levelled the match to 2-2. But an unchareteristic blunder from City captain Vincent Kompany saw his mishit clearance fall in to the path of Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who smashed in a third for Liverpool as they held on to win 3-2.

The win saw Liverpool continue their winning run to 10 matches, and keeps them two points clear at the top of the Premier League table. With just four games to go, the Reds are on course to win their first title since 1990.
