City slickers are too sharp for Reds.

Man City......3 Liverpool.....0 TEN-man Manchester City extended their 100% home record to 10 matches with a comfortable 3-0 win over Liverpool.

Reds goalkeeper Jose Reina let a soft Sergio Aguero shot go under him before slack marking at a corner allowed Yaya Toure to power home the second with his head.

Even when Gareth Barry was sent off for a second bookable offence with 18 minutes remaining City added a third from James Milner's penalty after Yaya Toure had been brought down by Martin Skrtel.

The Reds, meanwhile have grudgingly accepted Luis Suarez eight-match ban for racially abusing Manchester United's Patrice Evra. The Uruguay international begins his suspension immediately after the club reviewed the 115-page document from the independent disciplinary commission and decided not to appeal against the sanction and a pounds 40,000 fine.

However a statement from the Anfield club accused the FA of presenting "a highly subjective case... based on an accusation that was ultimately unsubstantiated" and calling it "a template in which a club's rival can bring about a significant ban for a top player without anything beyond an accusation."
