Philippe Coutinho celebrates with Jon Flanagan after scoring the winner at Anfield.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard cried tears of joy as his team moved a step closer to a first league title in 24 years with a thrilling 3-2 win over championship rivals Manchester City at Anfield.
Philippe Coutinho's strike 12 minutes from time settled a pulsating encounter, which went all the hosts' way in the first half with goals from Raheem Sterling and Martin Skrtel.
However, City showed their resolve to bring it back to 2-2 in the second half as David Silva and a Glen Johnson own goal pulled them level, but a sliced clearance from City captain Vincent Kompany fell kindly to Coutinho to rifle in the decisive fifth goal of the match.
At the final whistle Reds captain Gerrard looked to the heavens and burst into tears before gathering his team-mates around him into a huddle, no doubt to remind them that this title is not yet won despite this potentially pivotal result.
