FULL-TIME. That was a pretty comprehensive display from Manchester City, really, wasn't it? Stevan Jovetic was lively and alert, Sergio Aguero was incisive and made an immediate impact. Liverpool have more injury worries - and will that perhaps add a little too much to the weight of expectation already on Mario Balotelli's shoulders? We'll see. Thanks for your company this evening.
GOAL! It's one messy goal back for Liverpool, as Rickie Lambert's head, Pablo Zabaleta's shin and Joe Hart's body combine to get the ball over the line.
Lambert replaces Sterling for Liverpool, and Fernandinho replaces Jovetic for City.
Liverpool trying to mix it up a bit in the closing minutes, Emre Can replacing Joe Allen.
GOAL! Well, that didn't take long. Aguero catches Liverpool napping, picking up a lovely ball from Navas on the right, and getting in front of the defence to fire underneath Mignolet's despairing hand.
Dzeko isn't going to continue - Aguero replaces him.
Jesus Navas joins the fray, replacing Silva.
A substitution as Coutinho departs to be replaced by Markovic.
GOAL! Jovetic doubles his tally for the evening with a touch of quintessential goal-poaching. He's left utterly unmarked as the ball zings across the box from Nasri on the right and rifles it home.
GOAL! And Liverpool will be fuming with themselves. Very square defence, and Jovetic nips in around Alberto Moreno, who's swinging his leg at thin air.
Booking for Toure, who's prevented Coutinho's progress up the pitch.
Manchester City kick off. One thing about the rain, the pitch is looking lovely and green.
