  1. FULL-TIME

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Roberto Firmino runs with the ball

    Comprehensive. Liverpool were great. City were utterly dreadful.

  2. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Oh, Joe Allen has just nearly crowned this Liverpool display with a worldy. He unleashes a shot from way out and it loops over Joe Hart and just onto the roof of the net.

  3. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    You know what, I forgot that Wilfried Bony had even come on. Ne shoots harmlessly and Simon Mignolet saves.

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Jesus Navas swings in the corner and Dejan Lovren heads clear.

  5. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    City have a late corner. Not that it will make a difference.

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Huge cheers for James Milner, who has been superb tonight against his former club. He departs to be replaced by Jordon Ibe.

  7. CLOSE!

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Oh! Jordan Henderson curls a free-kick through the wall and just past the post. I thought that was in. So did Joe Hart by the looks of it. He barely moved.

  8. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    This sums up City's night. Aleksandar Kolarov, who came on earlier for Gael Clichy, looks to fire an angled cross into the Liverpool box but slices it horribly into the stand behind the goal. Awful.

  9. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Joe Hart in action with Liverpool's Christian Benteke

    A combination of the breeze and Christian Benteke cause Joe Hart problems as he comes forward to punch away a free-kick that is pumped into the box. It is a struggle but the England number one just about manages to get the ball away.

    Can Liverpool still make top four?

    Mohammad Rizwan: You know what? I just realised that Liverpool can still finish in top 4!!!

    Ash Williams: 4th is still on if Liverpool win tonight. 6 points off 4th. Forget West Ham.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    This game is surely decided now. Liverpool take the chance to make another change as Joe Allen comes on for Roberto Firmino.

  12. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert on BBC Radio 5 live

    "I was going to say Liverpool could score four or five but now Benteke is coming on."

  13. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Sergio Aguero of Manchester City stands dejected

    Take a bow Kolo Toure. Sergio Aguero gets goal-side in the box but the defender gets back and takes the ball off him before he can shoot. Class.

  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    This is just taking the mickey out of City. Off goes Divock Origi and on comes Christian Benteke. Manuel Pellegrini's side reduced to a confidence builder for an out-of-form striker.

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Jesus Navas and Adam Lallana shove and barge and slap (a bit) at each other, leading to a booking for the former. Sunday's final and tonight's events have given this contest plenty of spice.

  16. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    The look of dejection on the faces of the away fans at Anfield says it all. City have been totally outplayed here. Mathematically, they are not out of the title race (especially as many of their rivals are also losing tonight) but they don't look anything like a side capable of winning a league.

    Milner fires over again. This could get very messy.

  17. City are 'too open'

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert on BBC Radio 5 live

    "I think by gambling Pellegrini has made City too open, which was always the risk.

    "A great one-touch finish from Firmino, but a shocking touch from Otamendi.”

  18. Post update

    Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Tonight gets better and better for Leicester. City losing, Tottenham losing, Arsenal losing.

    James Milner goes close to a fourth with a shot from the edge of the box that Joe Hart saves one-handed.

  19. GOAL - Liverpool 3-0 Man City

    Roberto Firmino

    Roberto Firmino celebrates

    Nothing is going to save City now. They are getting an absolute pasting. Gael Clichy's weak attempt at a tackle allows Adam Lallana to collect on the edge of the box before finding Roberto Firmino, who finishes low into the far corner of the net. City are heading for a third defeat on the trot.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-0 Man City

    City up their striker quota to three by sending on Kelechi Iheanacho and taking off midfielder Fernandinho. All or nothing for Manuel Pellegrini now.
